Crocus Delivers Oracle PeopleSoft Upgrade At Pacific Life Re

Crocus Consulting (www.crocus-consulting.com), a Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork, has upgraded PeopleSoft Financials for Pacific Life Re Services Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Pacific LifeCorp, the parent company of Pacific Life Insurance Company. Pacific Life Re offers a comprehensive range of wholesale life risk management products and services in the UK, Ireland, Asia and North America.

The accounts payable and general ledger upgrade was from PeopleSoft Financials version 8.8 to version 9.1. It was performed through Crocus Consulting's unique Upgrade Lab facility. This allows organisations to complete upgrades, on a remote copy of their system, without impacting normal working practices.

Crocus Consulting delivered the upgraded system on a remote hosted hardware platform and continue to deliver support across Pacific Life Re's three time zones for offices in Europe, Toronto and Singapore.

Commenting on the upgrade David Smith Project Systems Accountant of Pacific Life Re Limited said, "Crocus has done a magnificent job getting us over the line, on time and on budget. The upgrade was an important project and the expertise and experience Crocus brought to it gave us complete confidence at all times."

Andrew Wild IT Director of Pacific Life Re echoed David Smith's comments adding, "We asked Crocus to upgrade our PeopleSoft Financials and through using their Upgrade Lab processes they have done so smoothly and free from any disruption to our operations."

For his part Chris Smith MD of Crocus Consulting noted, "Our Unique Upgrade Lab approach has the ability to deliver fixed-price solutions within highly desirable timescales. And having delivered support across different time zones for Pacific Life Re since 2008 we were especially pleased that they chose our PeopleSoft Upgrade Lab facility for this project. We look forward to working closely with Pacific Life Re going forwards."
