Treet Corporation Limited (TCL), a Treet Group company, uses Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) to help lower costs, support business growth, and improve productivity. By migrating its on-premises, business-critical finance, and manufacturing applications to OCI, TCL has reduced its capital expenditure (CAPEX) by 66 percent, maintenance costs by 50 percent, and sped up data backup times by 66 percent while minimizing system downtime.
With the return to pre-pandemic life, there has been a marked increase in spending on personal care products.
TCL, whose razor blades have been sought after by shavers for decades, wanted to ensure 24/7 business operations, improve its ability to scale, ease the burden on IT infrastructure management, and gain cost savings. With its on-premises data center nearing the end of life, TCL decided to migrate its on-premises Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) production, third-party business integration (BI) applications testing, and development environments other in-house applications to the cloud. After reviewing a range of alternatives, TCL selected OCI to run its business-critical applications on Oracle Cloud, faster and more securely, for less.
“To meet the increasing demand from our customers effectively, we needed to move away from the archaic on-premises platform and harness the power of the cloud,” said Hussain Yousuf, Chief Information Officer, Treet Group. “Migrating to OCI has enabled us to run our business-critical applications in a scalable, secure, and high-availability environment. We have also been able to significantly reduce our maintenance cost and ease the burden on the IT team, which now has more time to work on innovative projects.”
By moving EBS to OCI, TCL can take advantage of running Oracle applications on OCI, including minimal re-architecture, re-integration, and upgraded infrastructure. Additionally, TCL has also moved its third-party business intelligence application to the cloud, which is used to track production, output efficiency, and management reporting of its products.
“Many businesses moving to the cloud focus mainly on gaining infrastructure efficiencies and cost-savings, but there’s much more to operating in the cloud than that. Moving to the cloud is about taking advantage of the opportunity to change the way you work and build a culture of innovation to drive greater value and growth,” said Amer Khan, Senior Director, Cloud Platform Group, Oracle Pakistan and Afghanistan. “Treet Corporation Limited is a great example of how a company can use the cloud to gain the right mix of performance, scalability, and cost savings with the least downtime and modernize its business applications so that it can keep pace with the needs of its business, to stay ahead of the competition.”
A.F. Ferguson & Co. (PwC, Pakistan), a member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) and one of the leading ERP implementers in Pakistan, implemented the project for Treet Corporation Limited in just six weeks.
“Many organizations, especially in the manufacturing sector, are realizing that moving to Oracle Cloud for its higher availability and scalability can help them meet the modern-day challenges,” said Irfan Faruqui, Head of Technology Practice in A. F. Ferguson & Co. “We are happy to see Treet Corporation benefiting from OCI and ready to help more organizations in Pakistan in their business transformation journey to be more competitive and profitable.”
