When RCI Europe needed to unlock the true potential of Oracle EBS across its global business unit, they partnered with More4apps to leverage 20+ years of Oracle expertise.

RCI Europe is a significant player in the hospitality industry, managing over 4,300 affiliated properties in 11 countries. In the tourism industry, the Accounts Payable function is substantial, with significant complexity around membership and payments.
As a Systems Architect, Ben Pentelow wrote several AP & AR interfaces over the years. Therefore, when faced with the migration from JD Edwards to Oracle R12, his first thought was, “How are we going to get all this data into the new system?”
RCI Europe used Web ADI downloads for managing GL data, but nothing like this exists for AR, AP, fixed assets, cash management, etc.
RCI’s headquarters in the United States recommended that European operations utilize tools from More4apps to help with its migration and simplify data processes.
Immediately, the European location purchased perpetual licenses for nearly all of the More4apps Wizards. Pentelow notes, “this has been the best investment ever!”
No More DauntingTasks
As a System Architect in the tourism industry, Pentelow understands that teams often require new interfaces using an AP Invoice Wizard or APR Invoice Wizard. Using More4apps has made what was once a daunting effort a straightforward exercise.
The company has requested changes to existing templates and received those changes quickly. In a world where product releases happen every quarter, it is refreshing that More4apps adapts to change requests promptly.
Furthermore, RCI Europe had encountered issues with custom load scripts for migrating from legacy AP Supplier data to Oracle. Racing against strict deadlines, the Tourism Agency switched to the More4apps Supplier Wizard efficiently and flawlessly.
Save Money & Retain Control
Pentelow uses a generic application interface to load bank statement data into cash management tables, which enables automatic reconciliation of the agency’s bank accounts.
Therefore, the agency didn’t rely on an expensive and inflexible solution developed by external consultants. The tourism company saved substantial money using More4apps tools and retained control of its processes.
By maintaining control, Ben can adapt procedures when necessary because of the constant change in business needs.
Get your Projects Back on Track & Keep Them There
More4apps aided in migrating the tourism agency’s entire European, Middle Eastern, and African operations to Oracle R12. The company is impressed with More4apps and the reliability and effectiveness of its tools.
Using More4apps tools helped the tourism operation get its project on track and keep it moving forward.
Pentelow stated, ” I am constantly thinking of and developing new processes and improvements to existing procedures, which will incorporate More4apps Wizards. I look forward to continuing what has, so far, been a rewarding relationship and highly recommend More4apps to businesses using Oracle and wanting to improve efficiency – it’s simply unbeatable!”
