  • Reduce administrative costs by re-evaluating and re-designing polices and processes to take advantage of currently licensed modules and by leveraging the established change management process.
  • Improve services and customer satisfaction by providing the necessary tools, information and training to work efficiently.
  • To meet the de-support of current version by Oracle, November 2013
  • Overall faster performance
  • More and better reporting and on-line querying
  • Easier ability to export data to Excel
