OTM SIG Board Elections – Help Lead Your Industry as a Board Member

Help Lead Your Industry as a Board Member for the Oracle Transportation Management Special Interest Group (OTM SIG)

Call for Candidates Submission Deadline: Midnight EST, November 10, 2015

The OTM SIG invites you to join your colleagues and contemporaries to represent a collective membership of professionals dedicated to promoting, shaping and leading the future of Oracle Transportation Management. As an OTM SIG Board Member, you join a dedicated team of professionals working together to:

  • Help promote the ideals and activities of the OAUG in the region
  • Enable communication with Oracle on direction and strategy
  • Share information and experiences among users, managers, and IT professionals
  • Be a conduit for recommended enhancements to Oracle products or processes
  • Facilitate conferences, training and education among the user community
  • Provide representation for the OTM SIG at national and local events

The Call for Candidates

The OTM SIG bylaws authorize 13 voting members, 5 non-voting members, and 1 Oracle liaison on the Board of Directors. OTM SIG members elect 18 representatives to the Board of Directors from a slate of current, active members. The 2015 election will contain 9 open seats. Directors serve staggered, two-year terms. Directors represent the OTM SIG membership at large on policy issues, relations with Oracle Corporation, conference planning and overall user affairs.

OTM SIG Board Organization

The OTM SIG Board positions include:

  • 7 Americas Client positions, 3 Americas Partner/Consultancy positions
  • 6 APAC/EMEA Client positions, 2 APAC/EMEA Partner/Consultancy positions
  • 1 Oracle Liaison

A Board Chair for Americas and EMEA/APAC is elected by the OTM SIG board following each election. Preference will be given to a board member that has served at least one year. In the best interest of the OTM SIG and in order to maintain the focus of the user-based community, the chair role is limited to client candidates.

APAC/EMEA positions will focus on outreach in the APAC/EMEA regions in order to gain a global presence with the OTM SIG.

OTM SIG Board Openings for the 2015 election

To ensure continuity of the OTM SIG direction and strategy, we do not replace our entire board membership at the same time. Rather, every year a portion of the board is re-elected. Regular participation in quarterly conference calls is required as well attendance at weekly board meetings and more frequent meetings leading up to our annual conference. This averages to approximately 4-6 volunteer hours per month and is essential for the board to function properly and to be successful in all of its endeavors. The board may have one annual planning meeting per year prior to the OTM Conference.

  • 3 Americas Client positions (2-year term), 2 Americas Partner/Consultancy position
  • 3 APAC/EMEA Client positions, 1 APAC/EMEA Partner/Consultancy position

Election Guidelines

Several changes have been made to the electoral process to ensure that the OTM SIG remains an independent, user-driven board. The following voting requirements have been implemented to ensure that the election is fair and not skewed by any single company:

  • Voting shall be restricted to individuals that meet the following guidelines:
    • Registered OTM SIG member at the time the election begins (midnight November 16, 2015)
    • Employee of a company that is designated as a current or future end user of Oracle Transportation Management. Consulting companies, including Oracle, and Software Providers will be ineligible to vote.
  • Ballots will be sent to email addresses of individuals that are current OTM SIG members and will include a voting key. Voting keys are a unique identifier that ensures only you can vote and that the vote can only be submitted once.
  • Based on the honor system, the first question asked on the ballot will be “Is your company a current or future end user of OTM?” , a no answer will be our flag to eliminate the vote from the tally.
  • Voters will enter their name/company/and email address on the ballot, when the election is closed, those who answered no to the end user question will be thrown out. Board members will also review the results and have the right to throw out votes that do not meet the guidelines.

We look forward to receiving your response. Please contact Molly Whobrey, Geo/SIG Manager, at geo-sig@oaug.org, at or +1 404.760.2826 if you have any questions.

US Quarterly Webinar: ASN-Driven Automated Inbound Dock Scheduling

Join the OTM SIG for their next quarterly webinar, ASN-Driven Automated Inbound Dock Scheduling, on Tuesday, October 14, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. EDT.

Reserve your webinar seat now. After registering you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

This webinar will provide an overview of the approach on the substitution of current manual appointment scheduling process with a fully automated one utilizing OTM.

The Appointment Scheduling team utilizes OTM for scheduling an average of 250 appointments/POs (Purchase Order) per business day. This includes Inbound Prepaid and Collect, Direct Import Domestic transfers and Direct Import International.

The shipments/POs being scheduled include the inventory Office Depot sells in its stores or keeps on hand for ecommerce orders as well as for internal supplies.

The Legacy Business Process for scheduling prior to OTM was driven by email communications or reports. Appointments based on slot preferences as agreed by the facility (DC or XD) and it is generally based on product and commodity types.

Benefits with OTM-based Appointment Management

  • KPIs and Custom Reports

    Inbound visibility report, appointment scheduling report per PO, load planning reports for the warehouses, reports for Audit and Data research, and several more.

  • Lessons Learned

    ASN data accuracy and timing, carriers requests for future appointments or last minute changes to appointments, carrier request for PO add-ons with no ASN support documentation, managing backorders, warehouse planning and rollout schedules.

  • End to End User Training

    Training Appointment Scheduler Admins and Planners Warehouse Planners training. Training from UAT to Go Live.

Update on current rollout success.

OTM SIG Conference 2013 Report


Once again we have wrapped up another very successful OTM SIG Conference thanks to all of OTM users, developers, consultants and OTM related groups that attended and shared ideas and presentations.  The conference took place July 28 – 31 in downtown Philadelphia and consisted of 36 different OTM/GTM-related sessions, eight open forums, 13 sponsor presentations, two general sessions featuring Development updates from Jim Mooney and Derek Gittoes .  We had 339 attendees at this year’s event along with 26 event sponsors.  This year in particular we had more users of OTM presenting then in the past and we hope this trend will continue.  Presentations from the event are now posted on the OTM SIG website.

This year we added a mobile device to the event offering.  We received a lot of great feedback on it as it provided information on attendees, maps, agenda and survey tools.

Our reception was a fantastic night aboard Mushulu, a floating restaurant on Philadelphia’s Penn’s Landing.  Everyone had a great opportunity to network and enjoy refreshments outside.

Vince Papale delivered the key note speech.  He is a former player for the Philadelphia Eagles who made the team after an open tryout.  He talked about determination and reaching goals.  Vince Papale was the subject of the 2006 Disney movie Invincible.  This speaker was well received especially by our Philadelphia Eagles fans!

Next years conference is already in the plans.  Mark your calendars for August 10 – 13, 2014 at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel once again.  We hope to see you all back again!

Presentations are available for download here.
