“Leviton Manufacturing makes a very diverse line of products including electrical devices and data center products that we sell globally. We upgraded to the latest version of the Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1 to support our service business with change management, purchasing, accounts payable, and our internal IT help desk,” said Bob MacTaggart, CIO of Leviton Manufacturing. “We consolidated seven Web sites that we used to host individually onto iStore. In addition, we run a site, using the Oracle E-Business Suite configurator, pricing and quoting for our sales agents to do configuration work. This site can now generate a complete sales proposal using Oracle functionality; we actually generate CAD drawings - the actual drawings themselves - based on configuration results. It used to take six to eight weeks to generate these drawings and now it's all done online in an hour to two hours by our sales agents themselves, totally self-service. It does everything they need. From our point of view that is a major business success. Not only is it a very cool, innovative application, but it also puts us about two years ahead of our competition.”
“As a new PeopleSoft customer, Navigant Consulting has been very pleased with our decision to deploy PeopleSoft Enterprise 9.1. We have also been happy with the quality of the 9.1 applications we are implementing,” said Julia Manson, director of applications, Navigant Consulting. “We were in the middle of a net-new 9.0 implementation but decided to extend our project timeline to implement 9.1.

Also, our end users are appreciating the intuitive interface of the PeopleSoft Enterprise 9.1 applications.”
