‘NO UPFRONT COST’ APPROACH DELIVERS BROADER ACCESS TO ORACLE CLOUD APPLICATIONS

By Andy Bird, CEO of Inoapps

As fast growing companies expand, they often outgrow their existing IT set up. Indeed, whilst reviewing their back-office, many discover that rather than delivering streamlined core business processes, their systems are now subject to lengthy upgrades and legacy customizations. Their dilemma is how to refresh and modernise their IT, without incurring significant and sometimes punitive upfront costs. To me, as CEO of Inoapps, an Oracle Platinum partner, there existed a need to offer these companies a professional technology refresh but without crippling financial commitments upfront. We felt that this could be achieved most effectively by using the latest Software as a Service (SaaS) technology approach.

So to meet this need we have launched the InClusive® solutions range. With an Oracle Cloud application for every business need, this newSaaS solution is aimed at exactly these fast growing businesses,where they are keen to introduce an OPEX approach to rapidly update theirexisting IT.   The InClusive range delivers this byenabling companies to accessthe latest enterprise-class Oracle Cloud solutionsand related services on a cash-flow friendly monthly-fee basis but with no initial upfront cost. By this means, companies can punch above their weight by using the same systems as much bigger organisations but at a fraction of the cost of outright purchase.

Oracle delivers the world’s biggest Cloud along with the widest choice of powerful business applications available as public, private or hybrid Cloud alternatives. This ensures that companies can have confidence that they can readily transform and customize their business systems to suit both their IT and budgetary needs. In addition, sourcing a complete range of Oracle solutions through the Software as a Service model significantly boosts efficiency, as companies do not need to spend time and resource integrating a myriad of individual products from different sources. The significant amount of time and resources that this frees up can then be diverted into funding further growth and innovation elsewhere in the business.

Amongst the comprehensive range of Oracle Cloudapplicationsincorporatedin the InClusive solution are Oracle’s Enterprise Resource Planning, Human Capital Management, Customer Experience, Supply Chain Management and Enterprise Performance Management products.TheInClusiverange, which combines the full power of these Oracle Cloud applications with Inoapps’ proven Oracle expertise,incorporates three key elements covered by themonthly fee:

So confident are we that Oracle’s Cloud systems will transform a business that we have deployed Oracle ERP Cloud at Inoapps itself.
