News Release Issued: November 7, 2012 8:30 AM EST
BROOMFIELD, Colo., Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A strategic business service that helps companies running JD Edwards (JDE) software to analyze and better align their business growth needs with their software systems has been launched by GSI, Inc. (www.getgsi.com).
The new Business Value Assessment service, introduced here at the first JD Edwards (JDE) EnterpriseOne conference, INFOCUS, booth #33, helps c-level and IT executives to conduct a strategic review of their business needs to ensure their JDE enterprise software is being fully utilized and not hindering their growth.
"The number one question we hear from our clients and friends in the industry is 'how do you know when it's time to upgrade or expand the use of our system?'" said Shawn Scanlon, executive vice president, GSI. "The correct answer is not simply 'you need to be current.' We believe executive management needs to better understand the business value they are getting from their current system as well as the obvious and hidden benefits they may derive from a prospective upgrade or adding more functionality."
The Business Value Assessment service is based on GSI's 400+ years of JDE experience including hundreds of upgrades for organizations of all sizes and across numerous industry segments. It entails an initial consultation that analyzes a company's current business situation; market, geographic, online and mobile growth plans; and a comprehensive review of their current software infrastructure and IT roadmap.
GSI's team then conducts a business analysis review matching up the company's business needs with capabilities and actual usage of their current software. Finally, GSI delivers a customized assessment that matches business growth and opportunity costs against the economics of their current software, the cost of a potential upgrade and/or the wisdom of complementing their system with a third-party software solution.
Brasfield & Gorrie General Contractors (www.brasfieldgorrie.com), a full-servicecontracting, construction management and design/build provider, headquartered in Birmingham, Ala. and with offices in Georgia, Texas, Florida, Tennessee and North Carolina, engaged GSI for the new service earlier this year. Chief Technology Officer James R. Purcell, Sr., said the project helped his firm to better understand and justify its upgrade.
"Not only did GSI's Business Value Assessment service help us to better understand the user interface improvements in version 9.1, but it also identified real business benefit opportunities," said Mr. Purcell. "The Hierarchical Contract Structure will help us manage our joint venture construction projects better. And by implementing JD Edwards' Mobile Expense Management, we can stop recording expense statements in off-line Excel documents. This should help us recover, conservatively, two percent of these costs by having the job and cost codes validated as the expense reports are entered, which is about a $300,000 benefit annually."
"Our Business Value Assessment service helps management to determine the best approach to enhancing their IT infrastructure to ensure that their business system fully supports their business strategy. From there, we help to develop a realistic timeline and accurate budget to avoid any surprises and ensure a successful outcome," said Mr. Scanlon.
The new service provides JDE World organizations with unlimited programming and system administration support for their live production system – all for a fixed monthly fee that is typically 50 percent less than one full-time employee.
"Although JD Edwards World is extremely powerful and robust, the talent pool is very limited with most of the true experts approaching retirement age," said Kevin Herrig, CEO of GSI, Inc. "WorldCare was designed to provide companies running World software with peace of mind knowing that real-world experts are ready 24/7/365."
With WorldCare, GSI now offers the broadest and most flexible array of JDE managed services on the market. In addition to the WorldCare service, GSI's wide range of AppCare Services help support clients' software application, development, configurable network computing (CNC), database management system and hosting needs:
