University of Missouri (UM) wanted to improve supply chain management systems, which had operational issues and limited the ability to control supply costs and improve operating rooms' inventory visibility, to limit stocking costs and prevent frequent expediting of supplies. The challenge was to improve reporting and analytics to properly manage overall supply chain logistics and costs and consolidate environments for significant cost savings related to accounts payable functions. UM re-engaged Oracle Insight based on previous successes in working with the team to build solid business cases that resulted in tangible improvements and participated in a series of focused discovery sessions and thorough process analysis with the Oracle Insight team to gain a clear understanding of the university's key supply chain issues and challenges.
