We are a leading offshore pipeline installation company. Our operational processes require flexibility and mobility, but they are highly complex as well. In addition we have to manage our project while being under time pressure. Therefore, we hired Yellowstar Solutions to help us create additional functionalities on top of Oracle E-Business Suite. We received several requests for additional functionality from within our organization, such as from our logistics experts. We ship fairly large amounts of supplies, maintenance and project equipment to and from our offshore installation vessels. Examples of our complex logistics activities include a large number of urgent orders and high pressure, which places a huge demand on our systems. We transport regular shipments by container, while rush orders are often transported by trucks, ships, planes and even helicopters.
Thus, to deal with these complex logistics needs, we hired Yellowstar. They provided us with a Logistics Documentation tool developed in Oracle APEX. After a successful implementation we saw the power and the potential of the Oracle APEX tool and decided to continue with Yellowstar (and some other companies as well) in developing additional modules and add-ons on top of our E-Business Suite. The biggest advantage for us is the price (no additional licenses needed to use APEX!), speed of delivery, and the flexibility of the tool. It was these aspects that helped us most, in creating and visualizing our end users’ requests, and quickly make them more efficient. Yellowstar was a big help in getting the best practices & best efficiency out of Oracle APEX. To sum up, we are happy with the solution offered. It is certainly fitting with the Allseas IT strategy."
