Royal Brunei Airlines is moving its finance and human resources workflows to the Oracle Fusion Cloud with the aim to unlock greater operational efficiencies.
Established in 1974, Brunei’s national airlines will automate functions like procure-to-pay, accounting, employee expense reports, financial systems, and people processes using Oracle Fusion Cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Oracle Fusion Cloud Human Capital Management (HCM).
Royal Brunei Airlines’ chief financial officer, Nurbahriah Eliza Abdullah, said that the automation of business processes using Oracle Fusion Applications was in line with the company’s digitisation journey.
Using Oracle Cloud ERP, Royal Brunei Airlines will streamline its financial close process and automate expense claims to increase productivity, reduce costs and improve controls. The airline estimates that time spent on business processes would reduce by almost 80 percent once the transition is done.
Oracle Cloud HCM will help personalise employee experiences, improve self-service capabilities, and expand employee insights, she added.
Abdullah said that automation would provide efficiencies in the airline’s operating processes and reduce errors that “creep in” due to the use of manual processes.
She added that legacy business systems offered limited visibility into financial and talent management data and at the same time creating additional operational costs.
Oracle’s Vice President Applications, ASEAN and General Manager CX APAC, Jay Tuseth, said that the “time is critical” for the airline industry as demand for travel bounces back after one of the most volatile periods in memory.
“With Oracle Fusion Applications, Royal Brunei Airlines will be able to access a continuous stream of innovation and advanced automation capabilities so it can quickly respond to shifting market conditions, future-proof its business, and outpace change,” added Tuseth.
