Wichita Public Schools Implements Oracle Cloud ERP to Improve Business Processes, Financial Controls, and Reporting

Wichita Public Schools decided to replace its aging Oracle E-Business application to improve business processes, financial controls, and reporting capabilities. WPS partnered with Sierra-Cedar to implement Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning Cloud (General Ledger, Budgetary Control, Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, AP Automation, Fixed Assets, Cash Management) and Oracle Procurement Cloud (Purchasing, Requisitioning, Sourcing, Supplier Portal, Inventory Management).

Key Project Highlights

  • Improved workflow that greatly reduced manual and paper processes
  • Enhanced reporting via Oracle Transactional Business Intelligence (OTBI) embedded in the core software
  • Transformed ownership where procurement self-service allows departmental users to process requisitions, check status and perform approvals, and receive goods and services
  • Eliminated future upgrades with Oracle’s Quarterly Updates
