North Carolina-based Greenville Utilities Commission (GUC), an electric, water, sewer and natural gas service provider to the City of Greenville and 75% of Pitt County, has selected a broad footprint of Oracle applications and technology solutions.

GUC, which is updating its IT infrastructure as part of a broader initiative to integrate internal processes and technology enterprise-wide, selected Oracle Utilities Customer Care and Billing, Oracle Utilities Work and Asset Management, Oracle Utilities Mobile Workforce Management, the Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Hyperion Planning, and Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition, all running on Oracle Database 11g.

With the implementation of Oracle Utilities Work and Asset Management, Oracle Utilities Mobile Workforce Management and the Oracle E-Business Suite, GUC hopes to boost workforce productivity through improved communication between customer service representatives, dispatchers and technicians, says Oracle.

As part of the two-phased project, which began earlier this year, GUC has begun implementing the Oracle E-Business Suite and Oracle Fusion Middleware. The second project phase will begin early next year and will include the rest of the Oracle solutions.

"Our mission with this project is to support the right processes with the right technology so we can continue to provide exceptional customer service into the future. With the Oracle solutions in place, we can streamline the way we do business, which will ultimately enable us to deliver on our mission," says Sandy Barnes, GCU’s director of information technology.
