Version 1 Supports Go Live of Belfast Harbour’s Oracle ERP System
Belfast Harbour operates Northern Ireland’s principal maritime gateway, handling more than two thirds of the region’s maritime trade activity.
Belfast Harbour is committed to developing a World Leading Regional Port, utilising leading edge technology and sustainable energy solutions to unlock new levels of safety, productivity and profitability for everyone. The Harbour Estate covers an area of 2,000 acres and is a key element of Northern Ireland’s logistics and distribution hub. The Harbour Estate is a key economic hub and a source of tourism, all of which contribute significantly to Northern Ireland’s economy.
To support these activities, Belfast Harbour wanted to ensure that they had access to the latest financial data across the business so that they could make informed decisions that support continued growth, while simultaneously introducing efficiencies.
Belfast Harbour selected Version 1 and their recommendation of the industry-leading Oracle Cloud ERP platform following a competitive tender exercise. The resulting programme of work involved the replacement of legacy Financial and Procurement systems, and the migration of existing data, to consolidate information and processes. The scope of services included General Ledger, Accounts Payable/ Receivable, Fixed Assets, Cash Management, Purchasing, Self-Service Procurement, Inventory and Making Tax Digital.
As part of a single collaborative project team, Version 1 worked closely with Belfast Harbour from day one to develop a trusted partnership that covered project preparation, design, implementation, testing and hypercare services; which enabled go-live within the agreed project duration.
Version 1 is also assisting BHC with an on-going Managed Service to ensure that continuous innovation from Oracle’s quarterly releases can be applied.
Alison Headley, Public Sector Portfolio Director at Version 1, said:
As a leading supplier of Oracle SaaS expertise, Version 1 are delighted to have helped Belfast Harbour with the successful delivery of Oracle Cloud ERP. Belfast Harbour has been a pleasure to work with and we look forward to further developing this partnership to enable further business benefits.
