"VimpelCom" had a unique platform for dynamic development in the years ahead

April 14, 2008

AT Consulting Company has built a unique corporate information system for OJSC "VimpelCom".

_______

The system built on the Oracle E-Business Suite integrates all Russian units of OJSC "VimpelCom" and covers the whole workforce of the company in Russia, which amounts to more than 15,000 users. Uniform resource management system at OJSC "VimpelCom" is unique in the breadth of the functionality of Oracle. The system implements the processes of budgeting, financial management and personnel, accounting in accordance with Russian standards, and by the rules of GAAP, business logistics, centralized procurement model, etc.

Every day, the E-Business Suite system based on Oracle, is used by more than 20% of the company, from top management to line staff in the regional offices.

In 2004, due to the rapid growth of the company in the regions, the costs of maintaining data integrity in existing systems rose, as well as a delay in the provision of financial and management reporting together with the overdue introduction of a qualitatively new and powerful ERP-system.

The introduction of the Oracle E-Business Suite had two stages. In 2004, the system was launched in the central office of OJSC "VimpelCom", and in 2005 began active deployment in the region. In 2005, the system was launched in Siberia in pilot mode. In 2006, the North-West, South and Central regions were connected together. For the first six months of 2007 the system was deployed in the Volga, Ural, North Caucasus and Far Eastern regions.

"We highly value the results of the draft of regional implementation of the ERP-system Oracle E-Business Suite. We were faced with major problems of automation and transparency of business processes in the Russian divisions of "VimpelCom" regardless of geographic location. This project provided an opportunity to centralize data in a single unified database, which helped plan the financial, human, industrial, financial and other resources of the Company. The implementation of the system is the source of support for the high rate of business development in general, as well as ensuring compliance with international standards", the vice president of architecture and development of JSC "VimpelCom" Vladimir Filippov noted.

The manager of the project Pavel Luzanov, noted that the implementation on the part of AT Consulting "is one of the most important factors in the successful completion of the project, especially concerning the active participation of the leadership of "VimpelCom" at all stages of the project, from setting objectives and finalizing the acceptance of the results. Also, the huge role played by the successful formation of a single, professional team consisting of key employees of OJSC "VimpelCom", experts of 1C-Rarus and consultants of AT Consulting."

"The corporate information system of "VimpelCom" is one of the oldest and largest full-scale ERP-projects in Russian telecom," said Director of the Department for work with telecom and media companies, Oracle CIS Andrey Oreshin. "One of its distinguishing features is innovation. The project has always been dynamically developed and continues to develop in a functional direction, expanding the opportunities and benefits of business applications of Oracle. Regional deployment means not only the completion of the next phase of construction of the system but also in providing a platform for rapid development of OJSC "VimpelCom" for years to come."
