JUMBO

Konninkliijke Jumbo B.V is one of Europe’s leading toy companies with a focus on games and puzzles. Founded in the Netherlands in 1853 it is a subsidiary of the JumboDiset Group with approximately 130 employees.

Headquarters are in the Netherlands with offices in Belgium, Germany and the UK – each selling to its own market. There is also an export department which handles sales to other parts of the world.

Customer Challenge

The Jumbo Group had successfully been using JD Edwards ERP solutions for 14 years to manage stock levels and factory production information.

However, they realized the benefits of upgrading to take advantage of new functionality. It was important that the new system could manage the organizational structure of the Jumbo Group, which sells its products independently to clients across Europe, and via an export department for global sales. The goal of the upgrade was to minimize customizations and to ensure consistent data across the group. Investment was required to optimize the system to comply with IBAN regulations, to enable international payments.

WHY JUMBO GROUP CHOSE REDFAIRE INTERNATIONAL

The Jumbo Group decided to upgrade to Oracle JD Edwards Enterprise One. They chose Redfaire International as their partner because of their manufacturing ERP expertise and prior positive experience working together.

Partner requirements.

  • Requirement to comply with IBAN regulations.
  • Deep JDE ERP technical skills.
  • Clearly defined methodology.
  • Capability to deal with customizations which had created inconsistency and complexity.

Careful testing in conjunction with Jumbo Group meant that delivery was complete well in advance of the peak period, including compliance with IBAN regulations.

Outcomes

Compared to the cost of switching to another ERP system, upgrading Oracle JD Edwards was excellent value. The system will continue to offer future efficiencies, with potential for additional modules and applications like One View Reporting and CRM.

Careful testing in conjunction with Redfaire International meant that delivery was complete well in advance of the peak period, including compliance with IBAN regulations. The environments are standardized and give consistent data visibility across all factories.

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.
