--  To improve business performance and transform global business
    processes, Natus Medical Incorporated has adopted the Oracle
    E-Business Suite 12.1 using Oracle Business Accelerators.
--  Oracle Business Accelerators are powerful, easy-to-use, cloud-based
    rapid implementation tools developed by Oracle to get customers up and
    running on a wide range of Oracle Applications, both quickly and

    screening, detection, treatment, monitoring and tracking of common
    medical ailments. The company sells its products worldwide through a
    direct sales force and distributors in the U.S. and in more than 100
    other countries.
--  With an increasing volume of customer orders coming from around the
    globe, Natus needed to replace its existing ERP system with a modern,
    flexible and scalable suite of business applications that could help
    it lower total cost of ownership by standardizing and automating
    processes.
--  Working with NTT DATA, a Platinum level member in Oracle
    PartnerNetwork (OPN), and leveraging out-of-the-box, industry-specific
    Oracle Business Accelerators, Natus implemented the Oracle E-Business
    Suite 12.1, including Oracle Advanced Supply Chain Planning, Oracle's
    Demantra, Oracle E-Business Suite Financials, Oracle Order Management,
    Oracle Inventory Management, Oracle Advanced Procurement, Oracle
    Discrete Manufacturing and Oracle Service Management. Natus also
    implemented Oracle Customer Relationship Management, Oracle's Agile
    Product Lifecycle Management and Oracle Hyperion Performance
    Management, in an aggressive 10-month implementation timeframe.
--  In addition, to provide a common infrastructure for producing,
    delivering and managing enterprise reports, scorecards, dashboards,
    ad-hoc analysis, and OLAP analysis, Natus selected Oracle Business
    Intelligence.
--  With this integrated suite of Oracle Applications, Natus has been able
    to significantly reduce end of month reporting times, effectively meet
    increasing customer demand and establish a flexible and scalable
    platform to support future growth.
--  Natus is live in the US and Canada. Europe and South America are
    planned for deployment in early 2013.
--  Implementation partner NTT DATA provides modern, rapid implementation
    tools and implementation services that can help midsize customers
    achieve a quick return on their Oracle technology investment.
