DESIGN Our business analysts help customers with the translation of the Concept of Operations and the Business Requirements Documents into a functional and technical design. Together with the customer we transform idea’s into real life solutions. GAP ANALYSES During a translation into a functional design, there are always gaps to cope with. Our consultants help identifying those gaps and find a suitable solution which we describe in detail, so there are no obstacles for a successful implementation. AUDITING AND TUNING Before implementing a new or existing customer into JDA/RedPrairie, it is a necessity to know if there are technical gaps that need to be addressed to achieve a successful implementation. A database audit can identify reasons of decreasing performance and prevent blocking issues. CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT A running operation constantly needs to be improved to keep up with the competition and the customers expectations. Our lean & agile experts help customers to adapt with success and minimal effort.

PROJECTS Large new customer implementations require project teams. We blend into your project teams, share our expertise and make sure that we meet deadlines together. Because of our years of experience we have a large library of known issues when implementing new customers. When projects are getting bigger, overview is needed in every area. Our tools give insight in project statuses over multiple teams. Our way of working makes sure we are all on the same page. CONFIGURATION AND IMPLEMENTATION When everything is becoming clear, we start implementing and configuring JDA. In this way we can already involve the operational users. DATA ARCHIVING Many companies struggle with data retention. Data must be archived to keep the performance of the production environment high, but also all data needs to be accessible for years in some departments. We have built an archiving solution to serve both needs.

DDA DEVELOPMENT A big benefit of JDA software is the ability to develop new functionalities. A deep knowledge and a desire to look for solutions in standards is needed to make implementations a success. We have developed our own methods and tools to help. INTEGRATOR Communication with other parties is needed, in a format agreed with the third parties. JDA comes with Integrator to support communications with any other party. Our consultants help with with every aspect of integration, like field mapping, development, etc. REPORTING JDA has provided a great toolset for reporting, labeling and datascreens. We’ve also successfully integrated other reporting tools, like Crystal Reports, JasperReports or Qlikview. GRID When there is a desire to add an extra layer of insulation between the core system of JDA and all customisations, we have got you covered as well. We have our own solution platform the Grid, which can be linked and integrated with JDA with ease, but retains the desired level of insulation. This also enables the possibility to develop mobile solutions, directly connected to your JDA setup.

DEVELOPMENT A big benefit of JDA software is the ability to develop new functionalities. A deep knowledge and a desire to look for solutions in standards is needed to make implementations a success. We have developed our own methods and tools to help. SUPPORT We deliver customised training on Moca, Integrator, ReportWriter and DDA’s. These are technical training session for the customers implementation/change team. We teach them best practices in regards to architecture, performance or release management. IN DEPTH APPLICATION TRAINING We develop and give specialised training to operational personnel in core functionalities of JDA Discrete, like cycle counting or other specific functionalities. These training session are strongly related to the specific setup of the warehouse/customer.

GO-LIVE & HYPERCARE Once implemented, support is needed to keep things running. We deliver GoLive support, HyperCare support and support during normal operations. Up to 24×7. Support is delivered by our consultants, who know about your setup. In that way they know exactly where to look when issues occur. CHANGES When things are running steady for a while, improvements need to be made to optimise the operation. We help describing the business cases if needed, develop, assist with testing and document for hand over to 1st line support. MONITORING Sometimes you just need some extra security when going live with a change. Or during your customers peak season extended support hours are needed. We offer “ad-hoc” standby service during these small golives. We can deliver first line support or work together with your team and deliver second line support and even coordinate third line support with JDA or other suppliers. STAND-BY & SUPPORT When there is a desire to add an extra layer of insulation between the core system of JDA and all customisations, we have got you covered as well. We have our own solution platform the Grid, which can be linked and integrated with JDA with ease, but retains the desired level of insulation. This also enables the possibility to develop mobile solutions, directly connected to your JDA setup.
