- IBM i / AS400
This client specializes in the manufacture and distribution of highly engineered cryogenic equipment that is used to separate oxygen, nitrogen, and noble gasses from air, as well as the processing of natural gas.
When this client grew by acquisition, they acquired a small manufacturing unit that was running their own ERP system. The client wanted to bring this operating unit up on JD Edwards, which was the ERP system the client was already running corporate-wide.
The acquired operating unit was running an ERP system with homegrown engineering and manufacturing processes, and teh financial applications were in Macola. This disparate system meant that the parent company only had insight into what the operating unit was doing through end-of-month reports.
In order to achieve more timely communication, our client wanted to roll JD Edwards EnterpriseOne out to the newly acquired branch to bring the entire company onto a cohesive ERP.
After the EnterpriseOne rollout, the parent company can now monitor the branch’s inventory levels, sales order backlog, manufacturing backlog, vendor relationships, and financial performance throughout the month. This increased visibility helps these two formerly disparate operations function as one cohesive business.
