#ElireAtOOW – San Francisco, CA

Team Elire spent the week at Oracle OpenWorld 2016 in the beautiful, sunny San Francisco, CA. Our Oracle Applications Experts arrived on Sunday, and started the week off with a bang as our Director of Strategic Alliances, John D. Scott, presented with Janet Division, Vice President, Treasury, Wells Fargo Home Mortgage for the Treasury SIG Group. Sunday was jam packed getting Booth #3646 set up and attending the OpenWorld Partner Summit, where John and one of our Founding Partners, Brian Peterson, connected with Oracle Executives about our role as a Gold Level, Cloud Standard Oracle Partner. 


Monday Morning the Elire Team was ready for Exhibition hours, as well as our second presentation of the conference, Turning Wells Fargo Treasury into World Class Operations. Elire Founding Partner, Grant Bernardy, and Janet Division, Wells Fargo, presented the success story of how Home Lending implemented Oracle’s PeopleSoft to support its payment activity, as well as outlined the software review process prior  to choosing the application, along with implementation best practices. The session also discussed how Wells Fargo’s partners developed creative solutions to address real-time processing with scalable volumes at peak times.

Tuesday, our team spent the Day at Booth #3646, connecting with other PeopleSoft and Oracle applications users and professionals. Attendees who stopped by the Elire booth had a chance to win a Sonos PLAY:1 Speaker, as well as the chance to enter a drawing for a $100 Amazon gift card if they connected with us on Facebook or LinkedIn. The team also had a busy evening at the ERP Central Happy Hour and Dedicated ERP Exhibition Hours, as well as with an Elire Sponsored Happy Hour at local bar and restaurant, Red Dog! A big thank you to those who joined us for free drinks and a delicious assortment of sliders, hand cut fries, prosciutto wrapped figs and avocado toast; we were so glad to have you!

#TeamElire in Action – 2016 Oracle Direct Charity Golf Tournament

Team Elire was at Deer Run Golf Course in Victoria, MN on Thursday, September 08, 2016 as the Eagle Sponsor for the 2016 Oracle Direct Charity Golf Tournament. 14 Elire Team Members, including 4 of our Owners, set up bright and early for a day of golf, fun, and giving back, with all proceeds benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation. 

The Make-A-Wish foundation grants a wish every 38 minutes to children who have been diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions. This year, the goal was to raise $75,000 to donate towards wishes, and at the moment the goal has been surpassed in donations! 

As part of our Eagle Sponsorship, Elire hosted the golfers at Hole #10. Golfers arrived to a DJ, full bar, Big Birdie golf for a chance to win Vikings tickets at the new US Bank Stadium, and our very own Elire branded shotskis! Golfers and volunteers came to tee off, but stayed to hang out with the Elire Team and have a great time.

Elire also hosted the Bean Bags Tournament where participants were treated to Elire’s signature Vodka Lemonades and Gourmet Parlour Pizza, along with Elire Shotski’s and a regional favorite game – Hammerschlagen! Representatives from the Make-A-Wish foundation opened the tournament with a brief speech on their work providing hope and joyous memories to children with terminal illnesses and their family. Congrats to Bjorn and Joe, our bags tournament champions! 











Two of Elire’s Founders, Brian Peterson and Landon Hartvigsen, were in the top 4 out of 32 teams in the Bags Tournament!

All Beverage Tips and additional funds raised from Hammerschlagen were donated to Make-A-Wish.

A big thank you to Oracle Direct for putting the event together! We look forward to seeing everyone again next year, and to topping our fundraising goal!
