Teva adopts Oracle E-Business Suite for Czech operations

Teva Czech Industries has begun a $2 million Oracle E-Business Suite implementation with help from European IT service provider Ness Technologies. The new system will support financial and logistics operations. The implementation is expected to be operational next January.

The generics maker recently opened a plant for solid dosage forms, intended to help meet demand for some four billion tablets this year. The company says it expects exports to increase more than three times.

The Oracle system will help Teva manage financial and logistics processes, including optimization of a production plant in Opava, Czech Republic, and commercial units in Prague, Czech Republic, and Bratislava, Slovakia. The system will also provide connection between the two European operations and the Israeli offices of parent Teva Pharmaceutical Industries.

Teva selected Ness, an Oracle Platinum Partner, because of the service provider's experience in similar projects in Central and Eastern Europe. The Oracle E-Business Suite provides business intelligence and applications for asset lifecycle management, customer relationship management, enterprise resource planning, and supply chain management.
