Rheem has selected Oracle Fusion Cloud Applications Suite and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) to scale its global operations and support its mission to engineer high quality and sustainable solutions.

With Oracle Cloud, Rheem will be able to manage its supply chain, customer service, HR, and finance processes on a single cloud platform.

Founded in 1925, Rheem is the largest manufacturer of water heating products in North America and has a presence in more than 80 countries. To support its rapid expansion, increase productivity and meet its sustainability goals, Rheem needed to improve the performance of its core business systems.

The vice president of enterprise applications at Rheem, Joe Palomba, said that after a thorough review, Rheem decided to move its business systems to the cloud with Oracle Fusion Applications and OCI.

"With eyes on a more sustainable future, we've been reimagining how to better manufacture and deliver our innovative and sustainable products," Palomba said.

"Oracle has been a trusted partner for many years, and we will be able to automate and optimize end-to-end processes, while modernizing all of our systems."

In addition to streamlining procurement, managing inventory and logistics, Rheem can drive more predictive customer relationships and service models.

Rheem will also use OCI to help improve agility, sustainability, and total cost of ownership, including OCI Integration and OCI Identity and Access Management (IAM) to support performance and security across all Oracle applications.

Group vice president of product development at Oracle, Rajan Krishnan, said manufacturers need to quickly and easily access insights that will help them increase operational efficiency.

“With Oracle Cloud, Rheem can take advantage of the best technology and applications to help increase productivity, reduce costs, improve the employee experience, and help its team create high-quality and sustainable solutions,” he said.

“Oracle is the only provider that can help customers migrate on-premises applications and embrace SaaS on a single cloud platform."
