Business Challenges

  • Growth through AcquisitionsAggressive growth through acquisitions resulted in a large number of systems and people contributing to operational cost and complexity
  • Fragmented Systems with Limited VisibilityExisting financial & HCM systems were highly fragmented with over 15 tools used across their 29 entities. This fragmentation also drove highly customized back-office processes and limited visibility across divisions or entities
  • Back-office Costs & AnalyticsLeadership was tasked with a transformation initiative to reduce back-office cost while enabling analytics. The belief was developing a platform for back-office shared services would enable growth and efficiency across the business while simplification of the tools would also drive lower costs


  • Oracle Cloud Platform After evaluating upgrading their existing on-premise applications the choice was made to leverage the benefits of a single Oracle back-office platform. Corix was able to simplify the overall architecture by consolidating multiple systems
  • ERP Cloud Financial, Projects, & Procurement: Migrated legacy JDE system, enabling major improvement across entities
  • HCM Cloud Payroll, Recruiting, Benefits, Time and Labor, & Absence Management: Standardized HR and payroll policies and processes
    • Automated workflows and notifications across U.S.  & Canada entities
    • Self-service management and enhanced executive reporting for Headcount, Absence, Management, Turnover & FTE Management
  • EPM CloudPlanning & Financial Consolidation and Close
