CSS International: Contrives the Enterprise Business Solutions Portfolio

Kirk King, CEO
The introduction of new age technologies, like cloud, mobility, social networking, and anticipative analytics add a layer of implementation/integration needs to already-existing complex enterprise solutions. It is imperative for businesses to adopt and adapt to new technologies while maintaining the fullest functionality of enterprise applications quickly in order to derive the real enthusiasm of business outcomes with these platforms. The option of outsourcing the implementation/ integration using certified technology partners who have expertise with enterprise solutions such as Oracle’s applications suite, is becoming more of a necessity than an option.

CSS International is headquartered on Daniel Island in Charleston, South Carolina, is a leader in providing implementation and business process improvement services for the deployment of Oracle Solutions for mid-and-large-sized companies across several industries including manufacturing/distribution, engineering and construction, and consumer goods (including agribusiness and wine and spirits). Founded in 1997 by Kirk King, CSS has always been solely focused on services for the Oracle community and deploys a host of innovative service solutions across product knowledge, technical acumen and industry subject matter expertise to help large organizations discover measurable improvement in efficiency, cost and change management.
