Colorcon Receives Localization, Footprint Tailoring Expertise in Argentina from IT Convergence
IT Convergence extends the global Business Intelligence footprint to Colorcon’s Argentina subsidiary while complying with local legislation.
Colorcon, Inc. is a world-leading provider of pharmaceutical technologies and a manufacturer of specialty chemicals for related industries. The company’s best-of-class technologies are complemented by its value-added services, including technical services, global regulatory information, and independent research support.
As part of a global, single-instance implementation of specific Oracle modules, Colorcon needed to complete a rollout in the company’s Argentine facility. This location required support in understanding local reporting requirements to successfully complete the project. Colorcon’s operation in Argentina differs from other offices because its Argentine office sells both Colorcon and third party manufactured products. Looking to tailor the company’s existing rollout methodology to an office with only 7 employees and business practices that differed from other locations, Colorcon required additional Oracle expertise in order to match the large corporate footprint to the Argentine office.
ITC Argentina provided a team of 5 consultants for a 6-month period to offer support for the modules. The team collaborated with the Colorcon IT Team based in West Point, PA and thoroughly documented the gaps between the global Oracle environment and the future Argentina environment. Since it was impossible to have dedicated internal resources for the testing phase, ITC coordinated the schedules of each staff member in the Colorcon IT department to carry out tests before the production environment went live.
