April 13, 2016 – As announced at the recent 2016 OUUG Oracle Users Group Conference, Red Clay Consulting and Process Solutions Assurance (PSA) have created a strategic partnership to jointly implement new Oracle Utilities Work and Asset Management (WAM) and upgrade projects for electric, gas and water/wastewater utilities worldwide.
Both Red Clay and Process Solutions Assurance have brought tremendous technical and functional experience to the Oracle Utilities market place over the last 15 years. Both organizations have developed methods, best-practices, accelerators and software offerings that help minimize risk and heighten return for their customers. Combining these offerings to address the unique needs of both existing and new Oracle Utilities Work & Asset Management (WAM) customers provides a best-case scenario for those seeking services and extensions for their implementation.
Red Clay and PSA have developed a specific offering to help existing Oracle WAM customers assess, measure and plan for upgrading their systems to the latest platform. This short engagement will utilize senior resources experienced in both platforms combined with automated tools to quickly assess current and future state scenarios. Deliverables will provide support for the internal business case and planning efforts of any Utility considering the move. Additionally, PSA and Red Clay will present a seamless implementation offering for Utilities that need to implement the new Oracle Utilities WAM solution. A full-service consulting solution will include project management, functional and technical resources, testing, training and support based on the utility needs.
“We are excited to announce this partnership with Red Clay,” says John Clow, PSA CEO. “Our companies are founded on our ethics and passion for our clients’ sustainable success and with this partnership we are delivering exactly that. Our proven domain expertise in work/asset management and reliability/ISO 55000 accreditations, combined with automated tools we bring, make this the most complete and advanced offering in the market.”
“This partnership is what the utilities need right now,” says Paul Marnell, Red Clay’s managing partner. “We can provide clients the best possible functional and technical knowledge, while providing the accountability needed for a successful implementation. We don’t believe in delivering anything less than one hundred percent client satisfaction and project success.”
