Skipjack Supply Chain is proud to provide service to clients throughout the world. Here are some of their stories!


LifeCell

a Division of Kinetic Concepts Inc.

When Skipjack Supply Chain first engaged LifeCell, a leading provider of innovative biological products for soft tissue repair, the company was introducing a new product line with unique requirements that could not be fulfilled by their existing process manufacturing solutions, Oracle Process Manufacturing (OPM) or ClearOrbit.

LifeCell leveraged Skipjack Supply Chain’s expert knowledge of ClearOrbit to create custom mobile transactions that seamlessly integrated with OPM and met all of the data capture and product labeling requirements imposed by the US Food and Drug Administration.

Presto Products

a division of Reynolds Packaging

When Skipjack Supply Chain first engaged Presto Products, a market-leading supplier of private label food and disposer bags, the company was using a legacy application that augmented Oracle Bill of Materials and Engineering.

Although Presto had elected to move all their critical business information to Oracle, the company had become dependent on this legacy system to create a specific document used in their private label manufacturing process. Throughout their consideration process, it was determined by several supply chain consultants that this particular application could not be replicated in Oracle. Presto needed to retain this business critical functionality, but also needed to retire the legacy hardware. Skipjack was able to design and develop an E-Business extension that was tightly integrated to Oracle Inventory, Bill of Materials and Quality, providing 100% of their legacy system’s functionality within the company’s Oracle footprint. By allowing Presto to retire their legacy application and the mainframe it ran on, Skipjack has helped the company to consolidate their information within Oracle and recognize substantial infrastructure cost savings.

Sapa

a leading aluminum manufacturer

Skipjack Supply Chain first engaged Sapa – one of the world's leading manufacturers of aluminum extrusions, in 2003.

Sapa was looking to improve shipping execution performance in Oracle by deploying a mobile solution. The experts at Skipjack analyzed Sapa's unique requirements and recommended a custom solution built on top of their existing ClearOrbit platform. Skipjack delivered the solution on budget and ahead of schedule, eventually deploying the solution to several high volume manufacturing facilities in North America. Impressed by the successful project, Sapa has continued to leverage Skipjack to augment their Oracle implementation teams and deliver many high value manufacturing and shipping solutions.

Shorewood Packaging

a business of International Paper

When the experts at Skipjack Supply Chain first met Shorewood Packaging, a leading value-added provider of high quality printing, packaging and retail displays, they were running the Oracle E-Business Suite in conjunction with ClearOrbit's mobile applications for inventory, manufacturing, shipping and receiving.

While the mobile applications helped to reduce operator workload, they were not a 100% fit for Shorewood's LPN based inventory management system. Skipjack customized the existing ClearOrbit solution to provide LPN driven single scan execution transactions that increased throughput on the shop floor and in the warehouse, while reducing data entry errors. Since then, the Skipjack team has provided Shorewood Packaging with ongoing support and the additional functionality necessary to maintain their streamlined solution while also performing point release upgrades to ClearOrbit to track with new releases of Oracle’s E-Business Suite. Skipjack’s successful solution has also allowed additional high volume distribution centers to be brought on line in Oracle.
