The Continental Group Selects Core Services as Primary Managed Services Provider of Their Oracle® E-Business Suite Applications Core Services Performs Seamless Migration of The Continental Group to New Data Center and Support Team
SOMERSET, N.J., Nov. 15, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Core Services Corporation ("Core Services"), an Oracle Platinum Partner, is pleased to announce the successful migration of The Continental Group's ("TCG") Oracle E-Business Suite ("EBS") to Core Services' hosting platform. As part of the migration process, Core Services also laid the foundation for the integration of Oracle Financials as part of TCG's next deployment phase. On a going-forward basis, Core Services will not only provide support for TCG's production environment, but will supply all the necessary implementation services for future Oracle-based projects.
For 20 years, TCG has been deeply committed to meeting the unique and diverse needs of associations throughout the state of Florida. TCG provides custom-tailored comprehensive property management and homeowner association services that enhance the lifestyles of the community residents while supporting property values.
The driving force behind TCG's migration to Core Services was their need for more effective and timely communication from their Oracle Application Hosting Provider. TCG knew it was critical to have a more responsive partner like Core Services to provide all the necessary support, resource commitment, and performance rates to ensure the success of TCG's current and future Oracle projects.
"As our Oracle EBS footprint expanded, it became increasingly apparent that our previous provider could not provide the service levels needed or resolve our issues in a timely manner," explains Rob Rabin, COO of TCG. "We met the Core Services' team at several OAUG Collaborate events and shared some concerns about the problems we were experiencing." Rabin continues, "Core Services' team quickly identified our major issues and provided logical solutions." Rabin concludes, "As a result, TCG made the strategic decision to migrate our Oracle Applications to Core Services' hosting platform. The transition has been seamless and we are delighted to have forged a solid and mutually beneficial partnership with Core Services."
"Core Services remains intensely focused on building and nurturing mutually beneficial partnerships with all of our clients," explains Keith Inouye, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Core Services. "We strive to continuously improve proactive communication with our clients so as to enhance their overall experience." Inouye concludes, "As one of the elite Oracle Applications managed services providers, Core Services ensures that our ever expanding client base has access to world-class infrastructure, communication, and support."
