Inspirage partners with Oracle to become the first Oracle Accelerate Solution Provider for Value Chain Planning Applications aimed at mid-sized companies.
Bellevue WA, May 18, 2011 – Inspirage, a leading provider of global implementation services for Oracle’s Value Chain Planning solutions and Platinum level member in the Oracle Partner Network (OPN), announces a partnership with Oracle to become the first Oracle Accelerate Solution Provider for VCP Applications: Demantra Demand Management (DM), Advanced Supply Chain Planning (ASCP), and Inventory Optimization (IO).

Oracle Accelerate is Oracle’s program to provide rapid implementation business software solutions to midsize organizations. This class of solutions may include rapid implementation tools, templates and industry specific leading practice process flows to help dramatically reduce implementation time, complexity, cost and risk.

“Inspirage has a track record of success in implementing our Oracle Value Chain Planning applications across industries for mid-sized companies and our largest enterprise clients,” said Ed Moran, Vice President of Oracle Value Chain Solutions. “By working with the Oracle Mid-sized business team, they have been able to develop specific programs to enable mid-sized companies to implement our best in class applications more efficiently and at a lower cost than previously possible. We are thrilled to see this Partner commitment to our mid-sized clients and expect to see significant results.”

Inspirage has achieved Accelerate program approval for two Oracle Value Chain Programs: Oracle Demantra Demand Management and Oracle Advanced Supply Chain Planning and Inventory Optimization. Inspirage Accelerate Programs have been proven through several successful implementations across a diverse set of industries; two Inspirage clients shared these comments:

Steven C. Sykes, Project Management Office, Regal-Beloit Corporation said “Regal Beloit’s consulting engagement with Inspirage helped us deploy the Oracle Demantra Demand Management solution in less than 90 days. The Inspirage consultants provided expert functional and technical support and demonstrated tremendous dedication to project. We would highly recommend Inspirage to any company considering an implementation of Oracle Demantra applications.

Steve Drucker, Business Systems Manager, Fellowes: “We asked Inspirage to implement ASCP and IO in a very short amount of time with the biggest amount of benefit. They were able to meet all of our deliverables on time and on budget. We would highly recommend Inspirage to any company that wants to implement Oracle Value Chain Planning applications”
