Since software support was set to expire, MWH planned to upgradeto the latest release of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne. As part of the upgrade process, they also wanted to remove many customized objects, improve various interfaces, move to the latest tools release and upgrade their existing hardware and related infrastructure.
As part of the upgrade plan, MWH also wanted to create a platform for business process improvement and system optimization. The new platform would allow for an integrated global workforce, simplify new country implementations (M&A) and incorporate employee and requisition self-service features of JD Edwards. before moving forward, MWH needed to identify a highly experienced partner that could assist them with their aggressive plans.
After evaluating several vendors, MWH made the decision to move forward with GSI, Inc. based on their extensive resources, vast experience and knowledge of JD Edwards. GSI’s innovative plan also included a complete knowledge transfer to the MWH staff. Most importantly, instead of proposing a retrofit of the existing environment, GSI proposed a complete architecture redesign that would best position MWH for future growth.
Charlene McCaslin, IT – PMO Manager with MWH was very pleased with the results achieved by GSI. “We were most impressed with GSI’s extensive resources, their responsiveness and reliability. GSI was able to rapidly and seamlessly implement the latest release of JD Edwards with minimal disruption to our business and delivered the project on schedule. GSI’s innovative approach also allowed for a complete knowledge transfer to our staff during the upgrade.”
