Georg Fischer (GF) has selected Polaris Reporting Workbench, the robust Oracle E-Business Suite Operational Reporting solution, to complement their Oracle ERP system and replace Oracle’s Discoverer.

As their Oracle Discoverer, Oracle Omni Portlets, and Oracle Daily Business intelligence platforms reached their end of life, the GF team recognized their need for a new application that could offer real-time Oracle E-Business Suite reporting for all of their Oracle modules.

The GF team searched for a user-friendly tool that could offer ad hoc reporting, dashboards and drill downs capabilities for their users. It was imperative that the new solution have the ability to convert their existing Discoverer reports and integrate directly with the Oracle E-Business Suite security model, in addition to replacing the Omni Portlet functionality.

Mark Maley, a Senior Business Analyst at GF stated that “after researching many (Oracle) E-Business Suite specific solutions, the GF team chose Polaris Reporting Workbench for how well it was matched with (their) business requirements.” 

Rupesh Sharma, CEO at Polaris Associates noted that “the GF team had done their homework thoroughly and they had clear expectations for the new reporting tool. This ensured a productive dialog between GF and Polaris teams resulting in a successful implementation and rollout of Reporting Workbench at GF”.

GF users were easily able to utilize Reporting Workbench's hundreds of pre-built reports across Oracle Financials, Supply Chain, and HCM modules and effortlessly migrate their existing Discoverer reports. “As an industrial manufacturing and sales company, much of our reporting needs are operational, so the Reporting Workbench solution was a great fit,” said Mark Maley.

“Polaris values our customers as our partners and our team is known for providing excellent customer service. This strategy pays off as we routinely get referrals from our customers. GF received the recommendation for Polaris Reporting Workbench from another customer and they have shared their success story with many other customers since going live,” said Rupesh Sharma.

When asked about the success of the project, Mark Maley from GF stated: “A colleague from another company asked me the other day if knowing what I know now, would I choose Polaris again? Without hesitation, absolutely.”
