Dublin Port Company turns to Oracle

Dublin Port Company (DPC) is implementing Oracle Fusion Cloud Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) to enhance its operations and support its ongoing expansion.

Oracle EPM will help DPC, the operator of Ireland’s largest freight and passenger port, to increase the accuracy of its planning, budgeting and forecasting and improve insights and decision-making across its organization.

DPC handles two-thirds of Ireland’s port traffic and over half of the country’s total trade. Amid significant traffic growth over the last decade, the company launched a major redevelopment program to increase its capacity and modernize its facilities. It needed to automate and streamline its financial planning processes to control and manage resources and improve reporting capabilities more effectively to meet its goals.

Oracle Cloud EPM will enable DPC to better connect operational and financial data across its HR, finance, procurement and sales functions to improve management insights, accelerate decision-making and enhance its business modelling and planning.

The implementation will be delivered by Oracle Partner Network (OPN) member, Intelligent Enterprises.

Marie Porter, finance manager at Dublin Port Company, said: “In an uncertain market environment, we need to operate with a greater degree of adaptability and resilience to provide consistent service to our customers as we innovate. Oracle Cloud EPM gives us real-time access to critical information about our operations and performance.”

John Donnelly, country leader Ireland at Oracle, commented: “The logistics sector is facing significant challenges as it navigates recent disruptions and the ongoing global supply chain crisis. With Oracle Cloud EPM, DPC will be able to leverage emerging technologies, such as machine learning and intelligent process automation, to gain real-time business insights, accurately plan and forecast, and quickly respond to future challenges.”
