NEW DELHI: Oracle India, the local arm of the global technology giant Oracle Corp, Wednesday said it would provide tech services to automate and streamline all processes of an Indian Railways subsidiary.

Oracle will use its E-Business Suite to streamline business processes and information flow across the nationwide operation of Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation Ltd. (IRCTC).

IRCTC is a public sector company set up and wholly owned by the ministry of railways. It functions as an extended arm of Indian Railways to upgrade and manage the catering and hospitality services at railway stations and on trains.

IRCTC's mandate also includes promoting domestic and international tourism through development of budget hotels, special tour packages, information and commercial publicity and global reservation systems.

"The Oracle E-Business Suite on Linux gives us the power to control and run our nationwide operations in a cost-effective manner," said S.K. Kaushik, director (finance) of IRCTC.

Amitabh Pandey, group general manager (IT services) of IRCTC, said: "We are on the verge of a major expansion. We needed an efficient and robust system, which is also scalable. The Oracle E-Business Suite will meet all our requirements."

Shekhar Dasgupta, managing director of Oracle India, said: "We are delighted to contribute to the e-readiness of IRCTC and help them meet their goals of improving operational efficiencies and reducing costs.

"It is particularly exciting that IRCTC will run the Oracle E-Business Suite on Linux as this will enable IRCTC to realise additional cost savings and benefit from greater efficiency."
