Our Alaris Projects consultants understand the many ways this flexible application can be applied to meet the project management needs of your organization. We understand how to transform the transaction-oriented project costing and billing data into meaningful information for project managers, analysts and customers. We have experience deploying multiple indirect cost requirements from the internal needs of self-constructed assets, cost transfers, costing and revenue to incurred cost submissions and provisional/final billing rates. We have experience in dealing with efficient processing and summarization of large data volumes using techniques such as multi-threaded concurrent processing and parallel queries. While it is true that no two Projects implementations are ever the same, our consultants will quickly synthesize your requirements and develop a creative Projects-based solution for your organization based on time-proven strategies.
A large number of business users across the country required access to invoice and commitment status information for the departments and projects for which they were responsible. In addition, vendors and buyers needed payment scheduling information related to their invoices. Prior to the Alaris solution, a help desk in the AP department was used to respond to all inquiries. Alaris worked with the users and Payables management to design a series of web-enabled, guided queries. The web queries were carefully designed to provide optimal performance (often faster than Oracle forms) and intuitive navigation for the end-user. The information can be viewed on-line or downloaded to Excel for further analysis. The solution saved the company a significant amount of licensing costs compared to provided users with Oracle Payables Inquiry access.
