Brian R. Bouchard is a passionate person who enjoys helping others understand the complexities of Oracle Financials applications. He was introduced to Oracle applications back in the '90s when he served as the fixed assets manager at Motorola. Playing an integral role in the implementation and rollout of the application, he decided to change career paths from accountant to consultant. In his consulting career, he has designed, developed, and implemented over 50 full life cycles of Oracle EBS Applications ranging from Release 9 to Release 12.1.3. He has always strived to help others, to find the most efficient ways to perform tasks and utilize the system; these characteristics lead him to develop bolt-on products for Oracle Assets and he opened the doors of his own company in 2006. As President and CEO of Chi-Star Technology SM, he strives to improve the utilization of Oracle Assets and streamline manual efforts by automating some of the most tedious processes of Oracle Assets. Due to his passion to educate people on the complexities of Oracle applications, he has conducted well over 200 training sessions on various applications and releases. In the summer of 2009, he founded the CST Education Network, which was started to offer low-cost education on Oracle Applications via webinars and video training.

He realized the areas of opportunity in Oracle Assets—Asset Transfers and Reconciliation. In April 2006, the introduction of AssetCross® came to the market as a solution to the manual asset transfer procedure. The AssetCross® software will transfer single or multiple assets between corporate depreciation books, transfer full or partial (cost or units) assets, translate transferred amounts to the receiving depreciation book's currency, and maintain an audit trail with the original asset. In June 2008, the introduction of AssetTie® came to the market as a solution to the reconciling Oracle Assets procedure. The AssetTie® software will capture balances from Oracle General Leger and compare them to balances in Oracle Assets and identify variances. The same technology is used to compare the transactions copied from corporate books to the associated tax books. Within seconds of posting a journal entry from Oracle Assets, the user can determine if there are any reconciling differences.

The introduction of AssetCross® and AssetTie® to the business world has revolutionized the asset transfer and reconciling processes. Fortune 500 corporations, as well as mid-sized family-owned companies, can all benefit from this software.
