Cloud has instigated a tidal shift in the way business is done. Today, cloud-dependent businesses engage in ‘Platform discussion’ to obtain the best of the breed platforms that provide versatility, flexibility, and improved functionality. Customers demand the consulting pitch to not only project technical expertise, but rather an understanding of their business workflow and processes. The market verdict is that companies following the traditional consulting approach will perish, whereas the ones adopting technologies and exhibiting comprehension of business functions will flourish.
Understanding the needs of the customers and delivering tailored solutions is the Arizona-based Oracle expert, 3RP. It is among the flourishing Oracle applications, technology, and cloud solutions providers that help businesses thrive. 3RP's journey with Scott Salomon, Founder & CEO, has been anything but remarkable. “Since we first started 3RP twelve years ago, we noticed the shortcomings and the incongruity in the applications implementation process,” shares Salomon perspicaciously. 3RP is changing the traditional Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) implementation with Sell-Configure- Support process. Salomon describes, “We wanted our clients to have a software/SAAS selection partner, implementation partner, and full support services, that's where we came with the term 3RP, 3-dimensional resource planning as opposed to traditional ERP.”
With a customer base that comprises of roughly 250 companies, 50 of these have been doing business with the firm for over a decade now. Most of these long-term customers are the traditional Oracle customers that have committed to the Oracle footprint.
We are not just a technology company. We are a true business apps and solutions company that understands both
With Oracle significantly investing in R&D, the products keep upgrading with better developments each time. 3RP helps its customers stay ahead with the provision of seamless enhancement, migration, and release management services. As cloud penetrates deeper in the industry, everyone is pivoting toward the cloud. In the words of Salomon, “I would compare the cloud to how Linux or VMware came along. People were paranoid but given the time, these resulted in big changes.”
As reliance on high availability rises, Disaster Recovery plays a crucial role in minimizing downtime and its effects on businesses. While traditional technology consulting companies stick with the rudimentary and lengthy approach of mere replication of a client's database, 3RP lays emphasis on an extensive recovery plan that enables business continuity catering to the complexity that customers bring in with multiple in-house applications to multiple cloud platforms. Businesses today have grown substantially but the growth has been untamed and erratic. Salomon asserts, “At 3RP our focus is to help companies have a good understanding of not only implementing these Oracle applications Oracle Cloud platforms but also how do they grow with these and identify their requirements.”
3RP, an Oracle Platinum Partner Company was founded on the attributes of commitment, consistency, and constant evolution. Nurturing a loyal customer base has led to 15-20 percent of their business been triggered by drag or referral business. Salomon proudly says, “We are not just a technology company. We are a true business apps and solutions company that understands both. That's the advantage that we have over the traditional Oracle technology partners.” Thus, 3RP is truly the Next Generation Oracle Partner providing a service of value to their customers. While some question Oracle's arrival in the cloud game, Salomon has unequivocally set his eyes on the bigger picture, as 3RP continues to invest in Oracle Cloud solution stack. For 3RP, it is a completely open green field that provides a ton of opportunities to grow and the Oracle platforms are of the highest standards out there.
