Smithers-Oasis Selects the Avata Business Cloud to Improve Supply Chain Planning

Avata, Inc., a strategy and implementation consulting firm specializing in supply chain management, announced today that Smithers-Oasis has selected the Avata Business Cloud to power their planning operations.

Smithers-Oasis Company, a global manufacturer and marketer of floral foam, floral accessories, postharvest products and grower media, needed a planning solution that included full-featured applications and would not require a significant upfront investment in either infrastructure or support resources. The Avata Business Cloud is an ideal fit for Smithers’ requirements, combining best-in-class Oracle Value Chain Planning solutions with Avata managed services hosted in a world-class data center. Smithers-Oasis now has the powerful applications required for improving their operations without having to invest in new hardware or support resources. This provides a low cost alternative to a traditional deployment and provides the flexibility to extend the solution to other regions in a rapid manner.

The Avata Business Cloud, through Oracle Business Process Services program, provides Oracle software, hardware and managed services via a monthly subscription that simplifies operations and accelerates time-to-value.

“We are excited to collaborate with Smithers-Oasis and are looking forward to helping them achieve accelerated value, like many other Avata Business Cloud customers,” remarked Stefan Achilles, Managing Partner of Avata. “Deploying Oracle Value Chain Planning software in the cloud empowers companies to gain visibility and overall control of their supply chain, while staying competitive to changing marketplace conditions.”
