Customers worldwide choose Oracle Fusion Human Capital Management in the Cloud

24 Apr 2012 Las Vegas - Expanding its leadership in human capital management applications, Oracle announced that more than 90 customers have selected Oracle Fusion Human Capital Management (HCM) for implementation in more than 85 countries.

Ardent Leisure (Australia), Brocade, Cheshire West and Chester Council (England, UK), Herbalife, Presence of IT (Australia), Rule Financial (UK), Shutterfly Inc., Toshiba Medical Systems Europe (NL) and Zillow Inc., represent the types of companies and organisations in a variety of industries and geographies that trust Oracle Fusion HCM to transform their HR operations.

Customers continue to select Oracle Fusion HCM due to Oracle's global presence and Oracle Fusion HCM's built-in global compliance in over 180 countries.

Oracle Fusion HCM was developed with the user in mind. More than 1,700 customers participated in a variety of design, testing, and feedback sessions, helping to create an HCM solution that is truly global, configurable, and designed for the key user roles within an organisation.

Part of Oracle Fusion Applications, Oracle Fusion HCM helps companies realize the full potential of HR, helping provide value to every person in an organisation by enabling them to know their people better, maximize their most valuable assets, and work as a team to achieve their business goals.

A part of the Oracle Public Cloud, Oracle's Fusion HCM Cloud applications offer the advantages customers expect from SaaS (software as a service), without the limitations of niche solutions. They deliver the power of Oracle Fusion Applications in a simple subscription pricing model - with no hardware to buy and no software to support.

"As a long time Oracle ERP customer, Herbalife needed a modern HR platform to deliver consistent global HR operations. With operations in over 80 countries, Herbalife selected Oracle Fusion HCM in the Cloud to rapidly address the complexities of our global organisation", stated Mark Schissel, CIO, Herbalife.

"As the leading real estate information marketplace, Zillow is rapidly growing our employee base and needed a platform to deliver more streamlined HR operations to our employees and managers", stated Sarah Bilton, senior director of human resources. "Oracle Fusion HCM was a natural choice for us given the ease of use and the depth of the suite. With Oracle's continuous innovation, we are excited to take advantage of the best technology and functionality in the Cloud."

"We have the aim of becoming the best performing Council in the country, and our approach to IT will play a significant role in achieving this. We have worked with Oracle in the past, and it has always provided us with solutions that cut costs and make our work processes more efficient and effective. With the Oracle Fusion HCM solution, we have received the same high levels of service as we have grown to expect, and believe that the new technology will play a major role in helping us manage our pay budgets more effectively, and our people more productively", stated Debbie Thompson, Rewards Manager, Cheshire West and Chester Council.
