Hong Kong Housing Society has deployed Oracle Business Process Management (BPM) Suite, Oracle WebLogic Suite, and Oracle Application Development Framework (ADF) to strengthen its business process governance.
It benefited in several ways after implementing Oracle Fusion Middleware solutions in early 2012 and making live in April 2013. The society says it automated our business activities, reduced approval process time by 30 percent, strengthened internal financial control, and reduced its operational cost by 25 percent.
Following the deployment, Hong Kong Housing Society can respond to market needs quicker with the help of Oracle BPM Suite and Oracle WebLogic Suite.
In addition, the solution reduced the time that Hong Kong Housing Society required to review and award housing contracts, process contract payments, and approve employee annual leave applications through web, mobile, and email functionalities.
With Oracle BPM Suite, Hong Kong Housing Society now has better control over its expenditure and its budgets. The Society was able to enhance housing project expenditure record accuracy by quickly reflecting actual and committed expenditure through standardized and automated processes.
Hong Kong Housing Society was able to strengthen governance by automating workflow processes, such as defining approval limits based on job titles and roles, and including dynamic out-of-office by-pass delegation and approval communication features.
Oracle ADF provided intuitive task flows that enable 1,000 end users, including process approvers across different divisions and sections within Hong Kong Housing Society, to easily use the automated approval system.
Hong Kong Housing Society standardized and automated 12 procure-to-pay approval processes to strengthen internal governance for housing projects with the help of Oracle Fusion Middleware solutions.
CW Miao, head of Information Technology, Hong Kong Housing Society, said that the company selected Oracle Fusion Middleware over legacy business process solutions for its superior local support, higher performance, availability, reliability, and flexible enterprise architecture to cost-effectively integrate with existing Oracle applications such as Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and Oracle’s PeopleSoft.
