August 2016- Asahi Refining Transitions Financials and Procurement Processes to the Cloud

6e Technologies has successfully implemented Oracle Fusion Financials, Procurement and Self Service Cloud for one of its clients Asahi Refining USA, a subsidiary of Asahi Japan. This entire implementation including custom integrations was completed on time and under budget. The challenge was to move Asahi’s Salt Lake City Financial and Procurement operations from JD Edwards One World to a SaaS environment within a tight timeline given by the management. We made sure that the data from their metal and payroll system was being integrated into Financials. Oracle Fusion Cloud became choice of SaaS software for Asahi Management. We were brought in to scope the level of effort and were chosen as the implementation team.


During the scoping exercise, it was determined that Asahi has a critical legacy metal system that cannot be replaced by any of the Oracle Fusion modules. A decision was made to integrate their metal system with Fusion Financials Cloud using Java Cloud Service, an offering of Oracle PaaS. 

Asahi’s requisition system was a homegrown system that was too simple for their complex approval hierarchy and was becoming difficult to maintain. Based on our years of experience with Oracle Procurement system, we knew that Fusion Self-Service would provide them with more functionality and features. So we recommended the client to use Fusion Self-service module to replace the homegrown requisition system. This replacement not only helped them meet their requirements of complex approval hierarchy but also saved them hours of coding every month.

Our team successfully converted all the master and transactional data from JDE into Oracle Fusion Procurement and Financials. We also provided custom reporting using OTBI. The client personnel were trained on Financial Report Builder and Smart View. Our implementation team helped the client transition from the parent company’s JDE Financials system onto Oracle Fusion Financials, Procurement and Self Service cloud. To accomplish this in less 15 weeks, we performed our internal Rapid Implementation Methodology using Oracle’s Rapid Implementation templates and our project management expertise. During the last phase of the implementation we ensured that our team was on site working closely with the client. Asahi Refining Salt Lake City went live on 9th October 2015 and successfully completed its first month end. They are very pleased with the product and the configuration; looking forward to increasing their Oracle footprint by adding new modules with the new releases.
