TAV EBS R12 Upgrade Project

TAV chose Innova for its Oracle E-Business Suite's R12 upgrade project.

Turkey’s largest airport operator, TAV Airports, and its 19 subsidiaries use the Oracle E-Business Suite (Oracle EBS) to improve efficiency, automate its operational processes and reduce risks related to financial and operational controls. As part of its ERP implementation, TAV uses 13 EBS modules to manage several key business processes, such as accounting, revenue, treasury, budget, procurement, inventory, human resources and financial reporting. In total, Oracle EBS applications are integrated within 16 different systems used by TAV.


TAV is a fast-growing group whose ERP coverage continues to expand as it establishes new companies, meaning that it regularly adds new modules which must be included in the integration map. TAV therefore chose to invest in Oracle’s R12 upgrade to make use of its new advanced functions and decided to work with Innova to deliver the best possible solution within the scope and methods that they had jointly decided upon.

TAV EBS R12 Upgrade Project

The upgrade project was vital for the enhancement of technological and compliance requirements and had to be completed to budget and within a determined timeframe. It also needed to be implemented without interrupting existing processes and integration systems. The first step was to complete an inventory of all the applications that TAV was already using. After that, the two companies worked together to determine which applications could be phased out, and which ones could be replaced by new versions. After the completion of R12 training, users of the suite decided to include new functions that would bring immediate additional value to existing business processes. Thanks to the project several new functions were added relating to finance, logistics and human resources processes.
