Element Solutions Launches Next-Generation MarketingHub and Empowers Customers with a Platform as a Service Solution from Oracle

Element Solutions is a creative team of more than 100 strategic thinkers, marketing experts, user-centric designers, and software engineers that create transformative digital marketing experiences and solutions.

In its quest to help organizations more effectively use digital technology and assets to engage customers, Element Solutions began development on its newest solution: MarketingHub. The cloud platform gives marketing departments a simple and secure way to effectively manage their business processes, digital assets, campaigns, and analytics, all in one place. Element Solutions needed a cloud vendor on which to build MarketingHub’s foundation and help accelerate the tool’s time to market and ensure continuous innovation.

Challenges

Accelerate, build, and launch a new solution that will help marketing departments more efficiently and effectively manage their digital assets, business processes, campaigns, and analytics—as they are tasked to do more work with fewer resources
Extend Element Solutions’ competitive advantage by delivering innovative digital marketing solutions to market faster
Ensure scale and security of digital offerings that the company provides to its diverse client base, which includes financial services and healthcare organizations

Results

Used Oracle Platform as a Service (PaaS), including Oracle Content and Experience Cloud and Oracle Process Cloud Service, to create and launch a new cloud prototype in just two months, versus approximately six months using on-premises technologies


Boosted competitive advantage with the ability to introduce innovative marketing process and campaign management solutions to market faster and at attractive price points


Ensured development team agility in creating and modifying workflows and lifecycles as new application requirements evolved, thanks to flexible Oracle PaaS solutions.

Benefitted from Oracle’s enterprise-grade security functionality and cloud scalability to meet the rigorous requirements of healthcare and financial services enterprises and facilitate the sales process

Gained the ability, using Oracle PaaS, to rapidly demonstrate the value of MarketingHub with a pilot customer who leveraged the self-service functionality to reduce a project timeline from two weeks to two days and projected first-year savings of $150,000 thanks to initial workflow automation from Oracle Process Cloud Service

Facilitated improved collaboration by giving customers the ability to communicate and work with multiple parties—including consumers, requesters, sales teams, and marketers—on documents, anytime and from anywhere with Oracle Content and Experience Cloud


Benefitted from an easy-to-use, intuitive, and flexible solution that allows users to get up-to-speed quickly
Ensured a more complete marketing solution with the ability to effectively and efficiently integrate third-party applications to the solution, such as PrintUI and Kibana.

We selected the Oracle Cloud Platform over other options because it is modern, flexible, complete, and will continue to grow with us.

We’re limited only by our imagination. — John Yoho, Vice President, Element Solutions
