Oracle empowers Carbon to push the limits of what was previously "unmakeable"REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Sept. 27, 2017 — (PRNewswire) — Carbon (Carbon, Inc.), the Silicon Valley-based additive manufacturing company, is leveraging Oracle Cloud Applications to support its hyper growth and international expansion. With Oracle Cloud Applications, Carbon has been able to take advantage of a complete and fully integrated suite of cloud applications to increase business agility and reduce IT complexity. In just six months, Oracle Cloud Applications have enabled Carbon to reduce its close cycle from 28 days to 7, and to improve processes in almost every function.
"The potential of our Digital Light Synthesis™ (DLS) technology is vast, but we knew we couldn't successfully grow our business without a secure, scalable and connected suite of modern applications," said Chris Hutton, director of business operations and international, at Carbon. "With Oracle, we have been able to future-proof our business operations and the results we have achieved in just six months have been really impressive."
To support its rapid growth both domestically and globally, Carbon deployed Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Cloud, Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud, Oracle Supply Chain Management (SCM) Cloud and Oracle Service Cloud. Oracle ERP Cloud has given Carbon a consolidated view of its global operations, utilizing standardized and streamlined business processes, and provided the financial platform needed to scale. Oracle HCM Cloud has helped Carbon find and retain the talent it needs to meet its growing business demands. Simultaneously, Oracle SCM Cloud has enabled Carbon to transform supply chain operations to gain greater insight into the distribution of parts and products. Finally, Oracle Service Cloud has enabled Carbon to streamline its customer service experience to quickly address urgent customer needs and optimize the customer experience.
