Eminent Group Unveils RapidOTM Delivering Powerful Oracle Software to Midsize Business

HORSHAM, PA, October 3, 2011—The Eminent Group, an industry leader in the transportation and logistics technology market, today announced the introduction of RapidOTM™, a tool the company built especially for midsize businesses that want to take advantage of the powerful Oracle Transportation Management software.

The announcement was made at this year’s CSCMP Annual Global Conference.

Oracle Transportation Management delivers complete transportation planning and execution capabilities to shippers and third party logistics providers. Growing companies realize their transportation planning and execution needs require the same comprehensive application many Fortune 500 companies have used for many years. RapidOTM™ is a cost-effective offering that accelerates the implementation of the Oracle Transportation Management application, helping make it more attainable for midsize companies.

The Eminent Group, a Gold Level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) and a longstanding Oracle Transportation Management implementer, has for many years successfully provided consulting and services to companies working to improve their transportation and logistics systems. Using that experience, combined with insights and feedback from clients, Eminent developed RapidOTM™ to accelerate implementation and address the needs of midsize businesses.

“Many midsize organizations have long wished they could bring Oracle Transportation Management into their companies,” said Eminent CEO Kathy Moore.
“But the expense and time required to implement Oracle Transportation Management can present barriers for some companies.”

“Using templates, default parameters, fast data loading and industry leading business practices, Eminent can now offer clients Oracle Transportation Management benefits in a matter of weeks. That means companies can start saving money and improving services in their transportation and logistics structure almost immediately.”

Eminent CEO Moore said, “After years in this industry leveraging technology to achieve outstanding results, the idea of extending Oracle Transportation Management benefits to smaller companies is very compelling. We are delighted to offer midsize companies the same competitive advantages that in the past were reserved for only larger firms.”
