“Oracle Database Technology underpins our Fleet Management System and with the continual business growth and development we have undertaken a project to re-architect the core infrastructure. Radius have partnered with Explorer to help provide a new ODA architecture that provides us with the necessary performance improvements, license management and scalability capabilities to address our business goals. Explorer remain ever-present; supporting our business and ensuring that we maximise the value of our Oracle assets.”

“After the first APEX training course by Explorer, all the attendees agreed that the course content and the presenter where excellent. From that point on, when we have required APEX training, Explorer have been the go to provider and they have continued to provide a superlative level of training. Key points have been the presenter’s depth of knowledge and his ability to go off topic to discuss other aspects of APEX relevant to the attendees. Attendees have been able to return to the office and instantly put into practice what they have learnt.”

“At BMI Healthcare, Oracle Application Express (APEX) is used as a core development platform alongside Oracle PeopleSoft ERP and other Oracle products. APEX provides BMI with a robust and cost effective rapid application development platform to create visually attractive, yet highly functional, applications much faster and more efficiently than other tools we evaluated. There is no complex middleware and infrastructure to deploy, so coupled with the benefit that APEX is a no- cost feature of the Oracle Database, APEX helps keep our total cost of ownership as low as possible. Whilst our own developers are experts in APEX, we work with Explorer as our Oracle partner to benefit from their flexibility and expertise to accelerate our use of APEX and assist us with other Oracle products. We specifically benefit from their APEX development resource and is our preferred route to delivery than hiring independent contractors.”

“During the past 2 years, we have engaged with Explorer to deliver several distinct work package that have that have formed part of a large government project. For this, Explorer has had to adapt to the Agile working practices and deliver to standards required by this demanding client. We have found that Explorer consistently exceed customer expectations and delivered high quality code on time and to the required standard. They stand out as a team and able to use technology to deliver innovative solutions to complex problems. As an organisation, they are engaged with the developer community and understand that importance of contributing to the community knowledge base. For the standard of delivery and customer service I would give Explorer a 5-star rating.”

“Java development has been, and will remain, a fundamental component to our development strategies but we needed an alternative to deliver data centric applications faster to the business. APEX was selected and we chose Explorer to help support us by on boarding our developers to make sure we gain maximum value from the framework. Explorer not only provided training and coaching to our team but we also outsource development projects to them rather than the traditional approach of hiring a contract resource. Their development team is second to none, can execute on a request for resource quickly and provides us with consistency at an extremely competitive rate.”

The company provides MDM Shareholding and Disclosure System, an automated monitoring solution for financial institutions that are required to disclose details of shareholdings to financial regulators, ensuring that they always remain fully compliant with world-wide disclosure rules. Customers include investment banks, asset managers, and investment managers across the globe. We chose Oracle for its scalability, flexibility, and reliability, as well as its strong reputation in the financial services sector. Speed of deployment was also critical, and by choosing Oracle Application Express and hosting in the Oracle Cloud, we were up and running within just a couple of months. Explorer is our partner of choice for APEX development and Managed Cloud Services; they have a large team with a deep understanding of APEX and Oracle Cloud and were the right choice to entrust this critical development plan with. We have a great relationship with Explorer and the team really understands and supports our business.”

“Explorer provided an extremely valuable service giving us insight into our Oracle setup that we were not aware of. I was impressed with the level of attention they gave us considering the service is free and it gave me the confidence to continue working with them after the review. Since then, Explorer has supported us with their License Advisory Service to mitigate any non-compliance risk and to help define and deliver on our Cloud migration strategies. I would not hesitate to recommend Explorer to any Oracle customer if they are considering their services.”
