Oracle EBS Meets Trade Compliance

A leading provider and manufacturer of firearms, electro-optics, ammunition, airguns, suppressors, remote-controlled weapons stations, and training required process and system integration to align with U.S. Government import and export regulations.  Gerry's implementation of Agile methodologies such as Kanban and Scrum significantly increased process efficiency for the provider.  His ability to coordinate and manage diverse teams was vital in achieving these impressive results.

He developed weekly project meeting minutes, giving the team and stakeholders updates about the projects.
