About STR Software
Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan, based in Saskatchewan, Canada, is the world’s largest fertilizer company by capacity. It produces three primary crop nutrients: potash, phosphate, and nitrogen; and operates in Canada and six other countries.
The company uses Oracle E-Business Suite R12 for its financial operations and the eAM module for asset management. However, like many EBS customers, Potash has several business requirements that the native EBS functionality cannot deliver:
– Printing work orders with attachments directly from eAM
– Printing EBS documents with attachments from within the ERP
– Sending purchase orders via secure email with confirmed delivery
Given that the company prints tens of thousands of work order packages and generates even more purchase orders on a monthly basis, finding a way to fulfill these requirements was a priority. Potash enlisted in the help of a consultant to procure a solution, which is how the company came to learn about STR Software and its AventX product line that solves the printing and email gap in native EBS functionality.
STR Software’s solution appealed to Potash mainly because of its ease of use, flexible platform, and seamless integration with other third-party solutions like VIZIYA WorkAlign Scheduler and Esker DeliveryWare. Potash and STR Software worked together to come up with a combination of prepackaged software products and custom development in order to satisfy their business requirements in precisely the right way. The companies reached an agreement in the spring, and Potash plans to go-live with the solution in the summer.
