We offer customers the very best advice from our considerable experience using Oracle solutions; from design and implementation services through to optimisation and fully managed support services.


Credit Pools

Invest in a pool of consultancy days to be called off as and when required to ensure that you always have a resource available. Time can be called off in hourly blocks or multiple days at a time and can be delivered onsite or remotely.

Many of Explorers’ customers invest in a cost effective ‘Credit Pool’ of Oracle Consultancy to be used for a multitude of disciplines. The amount of days you need to invest in will depend on your requirements and Oracle technology use. Explorer can guide and advise you to bundle together a relevant and cost-effective Credit Pool.

“Our credit pool is used for out-of-hours consultancy when our e-commerce application needs upgrading or requires maintenance. Explorer are always quick to respond and it’s a very cost effective service for us because we negotiated discounted rates up front.”
