The York Water Company Partners with Core Services Corporation for a Successful Oracle EBS R12 Upgrade
SOMERSET, N.J., June 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Core Services Corporation (“Core Services”), an Oracle Platinum Partner and OAUG Three Star Partner, successfully completed a major Oracle R12 upgrade project with The York Water Company (“York Water”). This significant accomplishment is another example of Core Services’ deep consulting and technical expertise with the Oracle E-Business Suite (“EBS”). Through their mutually beneficial, collaborative partnership, Core Services and York Water completed this complex upgrade cost-effectively and efficiently from Oracle EBS 11.5.10 to 12.1.3, including a database upgrade.
Mark Hardman, York Water’s IT Manager says, “With the help of Core Services’ Consulting team, we were able to complete our R12 upgrade in 14 weeks on schedule and on budget. The project included Discoverer and database upgrades, as well as moving to new hardware. After their initial assessment, Core Services’ expert consulting and database administration (“DBA”) teams provided a seamless user experience without disruption to York Water’s Oracle environments. We have been very pleased with Core Services’ organizational and technical expertise and we look forward to working with them again soon. Engaging Core Services Consulting was a great choice for our company!”
“York Water has a significant Oracle EBS footprint, encompassing Manufacturing, HR and Payroll, Financials, Order Processing, Service, and multiple customizations. They needed to upgrade to the latest Oracle EBS release levels,” says Barry Brown, Core Services’ Vice President of Consulting. “Premier Support for EBS 11.5.10 ended in November 2010. Thus, remaining with that version would have resulted in very limited support and much lower user productivity and functionality.”
Jim Bistis, President and CEO of Core Services, says, “We are grateful to have satisfied clients and dedicated staff who collaborated well to achieve this superior outcome.” Bistis continues, “Core Services is a company dedicated to providing superior services to technologically savvy clients by focusing on their unique needs and formulating intelligent solutions tailored just for them.”
