Being a member of the Fusion Inner circle, and an early adopter, Basheer Khan gained deep expertise in Fusion Applications. Recognising this, Oracle engaged Khan in 2010 to install Fusion Applications for early adopter companies. This experience led Khan to envision a consulting firm that not only implemented Fusion Applications but also helped clients optimise their investments. With this idea in mind, Khan founded KNEX Technology in 2013 with the goal of implementing cloud applications, integrating them with other systems, and extending their functionality to bridge gaps.
In 2005, Oracle recognised Khan as an Oracle ACE Director, part of their ACE Program that recognises individuals who are experts in their respective fields. In 2012, KNEX’s CTO, Gustavo Gonzalez was awarded the same recognition. This milestone achievement makes KNEX the only organisation with two of the three ACE Directors in the world who specialise in Fusion Applications.
Providing positive change – together
Oracle and KNEX have collaborated on many amazing projects. One of the most poignant is implementing Fusion Applications across 14 countries, in just 16 weeks. “I think this is a record,” Khan shares. “We don’t know of any other implementation for such a broad region in such a short time.
“We've also done some impactful projects when it comes to improving the productivity of our clients. One of our clients in the financial services sector had their team spending a considerable amount of time capturing data from different banks. We were able to automate that using Oracle Integration Cloud.”
To breathe life into the concept of positive change, our favourite collaboration is with non-profit organisations. KNEX works hand-in-hand to help non-profits afford and successfully uptake Oracle Fusion Applications, simplifying their day-to-day operations and enabling them to focus on their missions to provide positive change to the world over.
KNEX is a go-to partner for Oracle
KNEX has become a “go-to” partner for Oracle in three specific areas. Firstly, in the real estate industry, KNEX has developed a Property Manager module to track properties, land ownership and leases, which is not available in Oracle's Fusion Applications.
Secondly, they have helped Oracle secure a new deal in the agribusiness industry by offering a module for grower and nursery management. Oracle does not have plans to develop this functionality in the near future, so KNEX has taken the initiative to build it.
Lastly, KNEX has partnered with Oracle to develop functionality for gig workers. This includes a mobile app where part-time workers can bid for jobs, communicate with clients and complete tasks through chat-enabled features. KNEX is excited to demonstrate this functionality at the upcoming Oracle CloudWorld conference.
Khan concludes: “At KNEX, we simplify the complex.”
