More4apps is 21 Years Old

Since then, we’ve achieved a lot, launching new solutions for Oracle Cloud ERP and winning awards for our data management products.

A group of Oracle consultants founded the company, knowing that they could improve data processes with Oracle EBS with software that could directly load data from an Excel spreadsheet into Oracle. Just a few months later, they had a prototype, and More4apps was born.

Over the last 21 years, More4apps has developed 27 fully functional Wizards for Oracle EBS plus 17 task-specific loaders. With every single tool, our goal is to simplify data management with Oracle master data.

To celebrate our 21st birthday, we asked the founders about their journey with More4apps and the future of master data management.

Why Did More4apps Start?

When the More4apps founders sat down to their lunch meeting, they had no idea that they would come away with the idea for a new product that would transform how organizations handle their Oracle master data.

Being implementation consultants, we had first-hand experience of customers struggling with large volumes of data. On every site, we were asked to build new ways to upload data from spreadsheets or other sources,” says Bruce Doig, Director of Innovation.

The solution was simple: build an Excel interface for Oracle ERP data management.

The Importance of Customers

Celebrating over two decades in an industry as fluctuating as IT and technology is a huge achievement. Over that time, More4apps has taken on 7-Eleven as a customer, expanded into the US and UK, and added capabilities for data management in Oracle Cloud ERP.

Now, our tools are helping customers all over the world manage their Oracle master data effectively. We’ve simplified data processes in Oracle EBS and Cloud ERP, allowing organizations more time to focus on other parts of their business.

However, none of this would have been possible without our customers. “Customer input has been crucial,” says Product Champion Lead, David Wright, “especially in the early years as they helped us work out what people really want from an Excel-based product like ours.”

What’s next for More4apps?

All the founders agree that the future for More4apps will be in cloud data processes.

“Our new platform for delivering tools for Cloud ERP can just as easily work for any other SaaS system,” explains Functional Team Lead, Brad Sayer, “and by leveraging the platform approach, development is much faster than in the past.”

However, there is also an opportunity to utilize tools like AI to improve the data management experience. “Our products won’t just work with Oracle,” David says, “they will be tightly integrated and provide a 21st-century user experience.”

“This may involve integrating with AI features to help users out even more and product usage/feedback mechanisms to help us build better products.”

Whatever is next in the pipeline for More4apps, the team will undoubtedly spend some time reviewing their past success and celebrating years of producing successful master data management solutions for Oracle users.
