Delivered on time with less than 50% of the approved budget.

Being an industrial conglomerate, IDEX possesses approximately 70 different business units through previous acquisitions. Whilst JD Edwards is the preferred ERP system of the business, each site decides which ERP they would like to run. IDEX has a strong internal JD Edwards team who runs global JDE rollouts on behalf of the business. As the queue for internal rollouts to be implemented grew to approximately three years, IDEX took the decision to outsource and hire Redfaire International to help the IDEX core ERP team execute rollouts in the Netherlands for recent acquisitions Banjo and CVI.

Customer Challenge

IDEX had recently acquired two businesses, Banjo Corp. and CVI Melles Griot, who were both using an older legacy ERP system. As IDEX was running JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.2, the decision was taken to migrate the acquired companies to EnterpriseOne using IDEX’s global template.

  • Each company had their own set of unique requirements which would need to be incorporated into JD Edwards
  • The focus of the implementation project was on simplification. Some requirements were not available in JD Edwards so there was a strong push for creativity and flexibility leveraging the template’s functionality and options
  • Local teams would need JD Edwards training as they no previous exposure to the Oracle ERP system

Why IDEX Chose Redfaire International

IDEX is a high-performing, global enterprise committed to making trusted solutions to improve people's lives. With this high standard, they needed a partner that they could trust with the task at hand. 

Due to Redfaire International's rich history with JD Edwards and ERP implementations, IDEX decided to outsource their rollouts in the Netherlands to them as they could see that Redfaire International would meet the requirements of the project.

Why IDEX Chose Redfaire International

  • Proven commitment to highest quality standards.

Outcomes

The Banjo and CVI implementations turned out to be prototypical examples of how to implement a core model. Thanks to a well-developed existing core model and a local user community embracing change from the start of the project, the project was delivered at less than 50% of the expected budget. As a result, IDEX and Redfaire International can use this project to inspire other IDEX sites on how to make the move to JD Edwards quickly, efficiently, and cost-friendly.

  • Demo of IDEX E1 9.2 core model
  • Fit-gap analysis to understand available functionality vs local site requirements
  • Execution of agreed change control procedures to avoid unnecessary deviations from core model
  • Implementation of standard core model and agreed deviations
  • User training through Train the Trainer principals with the aim of creating empowered key users
  • Preparation and execution of go-live with transition to IDEX Global Support Team

Time for a JD Edwards Attic Conversion?

So, I have a theory, moving JD Edwards to the Cloud is a bit like converting your attic. No really, bear with me. In 2021, our houses are no longer just our homes; they are also our offices and often our kids’ schools. The world has changed, and we have had to adapt.

FROM FOCUS ON BUSINESS TO FOCUS ON THE EMPLOYEE

As described in “The necessity of choosing an open ERP”, being able to differentiate in the areas relevant to your business is becoming increasingly important.
