MCX wins European tender DAB Vloot

In August 2009, following a European tender, DAB Fleet awarded MCX the contract for hosting and managing its Oracle E-Business Suite.

DAB Vloot is a Flemish government service (Separate Management Service) which is responsible for concreting and beaconing the navigable waters of the Belgian coast as well as the Westerschelde. A few years ago this service decided to implement the Oracle E-Business Suite in its organisation. From the outset, DAB Vloot recognised that the hosting and technical application management was too specialised to do in-house and therefore decided to outsource the entire technical application management and hosting to a partner.  After termination of the initial contract, a new European tender was issued. Key requirements were the technical competencies and experiences of the new partner, especially since DAB Vloot had decided to upgrade to a higher version at the same time as selecting a new partner. MCX's tender was considered very positive, both in terms of price and the chosen architecture and hosting solution.
