Panaya, one of the ERP test and upgrades automation SaaS providers, says

Since Eveready’s Oracle’s E-Business Suite (EBS) did not support the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), the battery major opted for Panaya’s SaaS technology.

Eveready CIO Arup Choudhury says the Panaya solution was able to track the customized code and document what had changed from 11i to R12.

“The testing team could actually pinpoint what needed to be changed, which would have taken a long time otherwise,” Choudhury said.

Panaya technologies ensured that the projected project duration was cut by 60 percent.

Panaya also saved Eveready 50 percent on code corrections, 50 percent on unit testing, and $60,000 in outsourcing costs.

Since Eveready didn’t outsource their testing and code corrections, they were able to better control the project.
