Released : 16 Feb 2011

CLAYSVILLE, Pa., Feb. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Newton Consulting, LLC, a leading provider of information technology and human resource management consulting services, announces the successful implementation of a global Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) R12 program at ANSYS, Inc., to improve core business operations and overall enterprise management.

"The key improvements and efficiencies in our core business operations as a result of this implementation will put us in a solid position for future growth on a global scale," said Maria T. Shields, chief financial officer at ANSYS.

The team used Oracle's latest R12 version of its EBS software to integrate global business operations across 23 entities in 17 countries into one central-functioning system. The project was jointly implemented by ANSYS and Newton Consulting resources.

"We've been an IT service provider for ANSYS since our company began and have found that this rare co-leadership method results in the best possible outcome for both the project and business," said Rick Newton, president and founder of Newton Consulting. "In fact, to implement the suite of Oracle R12 EBS modules on a global scale in 10 months and within budget is extraordinary."

The project's scope included all financial, order-to-cash and procure-to-pay business support requirements with the implementation of 10 modules. The software was fully integrated with an existing Siebel-based customer relationship management system utilizing Oracle's advanced service-oriented architecture. The project also integrated Oracle EBS software with the latest version of ADP Taxware for North American operations.

The key business benefits of the project include re-engineering key operational and financial management processes to meet global standards and best practices; streamlining systems from multiple global acquisitions; positioning the core business system for future growth and functional expansion; and meeting International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and Sarbanes Oxley compliance.
