  DENVER, CO, Apr 10 (Marketwired) -- 
COLLABORATE 13 -- Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL)

    News Facts 


--  PL Developments is using the Oracle E-Business Suite to support growth
    and streamline operations for its rapidly growing manufacturing
    business.
--  A U.S. based manufacturing, packaging and distribution company for
    private label, over-the-counter drugs, PL Developments (PLD) had grown
    swiftly though acquisitions, adding new manufacturing facilities to
    meet demand from major U.S. retailers.
--  To maintain exceptional customer service, properly manage inventory
    levels and drive business growth without straining resources, PLD
    needed a modern business platform that would automate its complex
    operations.
--  PLD evaluated solutions from Oracle and SAP, selecting the Oracle
    E-Business Suite 12.1 because the tightly integrated platform would
    support its complete business needs, with best-in-class solutions for
    financials, manufacturing, value chain planning and HR.
--  PLD's implementation partner, and Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) Platinum
    level member KPIT, utilized Oracle Business Accelerators, which are
    powerful, easy-to-use, cloud-based rapid implementation tools
    developed by Oracle to get customers up and running on a wide range of
    Oracle Applications, both quickly and reliably.
--  With the help of these tools PLD was able to complete an on-time,
    under-budget implementation of Oracle E-Business Suite Applications,
    including Oracle Warehouse Management and Oracle's Demantra. In
    addition, the company implemented Oracle Business Intelligence, Oracle
    Hyperion, Oracle's Agile Product Lifecycle Management, Oracle's Agile
    Product Quality Management, Oracle Customer Relationship Management,
    Oracle Projects and Oracle Learning Management.
--  PLD also utilizes Oracle Linux, Oracle Database 11g, and Oracle
    Middleware.
--  Replacing its disparate, redundant legacy systems with Oracle has
    helped PLD to grow rapidly without increasing its operations
    headcount.
--  By standardizing its inventory management on a single platform, PLD
    benefits from greater inventory accuracy and improved forecasting,
    allowing the company to eliminate time-consuming inventory audits and
    speed the distribution cycle for customers.
--  Since implementing Oracle Business Intelligence, PLD now has a
    comprehensive view of all customer orders, production schedules and
    inventory levels that are easily viewable on LED screens throughout
    its manufacturing facility, providing actionable information for staff
    members to adjust activities in real-time to meet demand.
--  Additionally, with robust quality management and learning management
    solutions to track compliance for product packaging and completion of
    mandatory training programs, Oracle software helps PLD comply with
    stringent FDA requirements for the pharmaceutical industry.
--  KPIT, a global IT consulting and product engineering partner, is
    focused on co-innovating domain intensive technology solutions for
    corporations specializing in automotive & transportation,
    manufacturing and energy & utilities. KPIT currently partners with
    165+ global corporations including Original Equipment Manufacturers
    (OEMs), high-tech manufacturers, oil & gas manufacturers and
    automotive Tier 1 companies.
