Consolidating 30 disconnected HR systems into a single people solution; Oracle HCM Cloud

In 2018 Version 1 announced the acquisition of HR Transformation Specialists Cedar Consulting Ltd. The acquisition of London headquartered Cedar Consulting is the sixth UK acquisition undertaken by Version 1. Cedar Consulting has become part of Version 1’s rapidly growing ERP practice adding expertise in PeopleSoft, Oracle HCM Cloud and Oracle Talent Management Cloud (Taleo).

Lucy Group is a traditional manufacturing company employing 1,500 people across Europe, the Middle East, India, Asia, Africa and South America. The company has been in business for over 200 years and has divisions as diverse as metal casting in foundries to cutting edge technology to real estate construction and rental.

The Customer’s Challenge

By implementing Oracle HCM Cloud, Lucy Group was looking to consolidate 30 disconnected HR systems into a single people solution.

Reporting was a particular issue for the customer as the inability to have a global view of workers and the prevalence of local arrangements around pay and absence made the HR team’s work very difficult.
