National Pharmacies 2017 Oracle Excellence Award Winner


Rubicon Red, a recognized global leader in Oracle Cloud Platform and a Platinum level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), is delighted to announce today its customer, National Pharmacies, has been recognized as a winner of the prestigious 2017 Oracle Excellence Award, Oracle Cloud Platform Innovation.

The Oracle Excellence Award recognizes customers for their cutting-edge solutions using Oracle Cloud Platform to deliver business value. Winners are selected based on the uniqueness of their business case, business benefits, level of impact relative to the size of the organization, complexity and magnitude of the implementation, and the originality of the architecture.

National Pharmacies, an innovative retail and pharmaceutical mutual organisation based in Australia, is continually exploring new, innovative approaches, to explore fresh ways in providing a true relationship customer selling experience and see’s technology as a critical enabler for new capabilities and offerings for members.

“Delivering an adaptive user-experience, to rapidly introduce new user-experiences based on business requirements and consumer demands, is essential to delighting customers.” Ryan Klose, General Manager, Corporate, National Pharmacies.

This vision is made possible by implementing an adaptive omnichannel API layer, that implements Services/Microservices that sit across all core back-end systems (CRM, ERP, POS, HR) and enables application changes to be easily pushed to all different user-experience channels.

As a retail organization, optimizing the supply chain with integrated logistics and delivery, is critical to deliver efficiencies for the business. To this end, National Pharmacies is implementing an innovative procurement and approvals process, for store employees and suppliers using Oracle Cloud Platform - Oracle Process Cloud Service (PCS) and Oracle Visual Builder Cloud Service (VBCS), integrating with Oracle JD Edwards running on Oracle IaaS.

With the new system, ProcureOne, store employees and suppliers can directly enter suggested stock orders from a tablet, in-store, and Store staff/managers can approve those orders in real time. No more waiting for paper purchase orders to be faxed to head office and then entered into the system – everything happens right then and there, in-store, in real time. This innovative process introduces efficiencies in stock ordering, processing deliveries, managing retail stock levels and introduces governance and transparency in purchase order approvals.

"We are honored to be recognized as a 2017 Oracle Excellence Award winner. My focus is to continually improve experiences for our members in the fast paced world of retail and health. Working with Oracle Cloud Platform and our key partner Rubicon Red, we have streamlined our store stock ordering and approvals process - suppliers, approvers and customers can all directly impact the supply chain, resulting in real-time supply chain efficiencies, reduced stock shrinkage and stock ‘right place, right time’ optimization.“ Ryan Klose, General Manager, Corporate, National Pharmacies.

“We are pleased to recognize our customer, National Pharmacies, as a winner of the 2017 Oracle Excellence Award, Connect and Extend Applications Innovation Award. Using Oracle Cloud Platform, National Pharmacies has implemented an innovative stock procurement and approvals solution,” said Vikas Anand, Vice President, Product Management, Oracle Corporation. “We would also like to acknowledge the ongoing investments from Rubicon Red, enabling them to rapidly deliver innovations for their customers, with Oracle Cloud Platform, including Integration Cloud, Process Cloud, and API Platform Cloud. Rubicon Red’s new dedicated Oracle Cloud Platform, PaaS and IaaS, practice, coupled with their cloud best practice approach, positions them as a partner of choice for Oracle Cloud Platform.”
