“C&A Technology has proven to be the right vendor choice by providing us with outstanding JD Edwards best practice, project management, functional, and technical expertise to allow us to successfully achieve our implementation goals. ASSA ABLOY needed a JD Edwards Partner to help accomplish an ambitious roll out of JD Edwards software across multiple companies and facilities in the Americas. This included helping us develop some essential lock and keying functionality that was required for our industry, being the global leader in door opening solutions.”Dan Relihan

“C&A Technology (CAT) served as the project management during the JD Edwards implementation project. They accomplished themselves as ERP professionals with expertise in multiple areas. CAT was instrumental in guiding us through each phase of the project and making recommendations for product configurations, seamless flow opportunities and best practices. CAT’s greatest strength is the ability to effectively communicate at all levels of the organization. CAT can speak on a very detailed, transactional level and quickly transition to a high-level strategic discussion as well. CAT’s patience and understanding of the changes required within the organization during an ERP system implementation will be the key difference in any ERP system implementation.”James Hill

“C&A Technology (CAT) provided excellent business systems consultants with experience in leading many ERP Software Evaluations for manufacturing companies including at automotive suppliers such as Mitsubishi Climate Controls, Aisin, and Reliable Automotive. CAT has helped companies properly define their requirements, evaluate the software solutions, select and implement the right solutions. CAT understands manufacturing in the automotive environment, and knows how to galvanize unity within an organization around the right ERP solution. I recommend CAT’s ERP planning and selection services.”Doug Evers

“We needed an experienced JD Edwards services partner like C&A Technology with significant industry knowledge and JD Edwards product knowledge to help us utilize our JD Edwards Distribution Requirements Planning (DRP) functionality to alleviate our dependence on manual Excel-based procedures. The objective was to improve the ability of NBCA’s operations planning group in the NTN Automotive Center (NAC) to quickly and effectively manage their supply plans with their manufacturing plants. The solution included working with another service partner to seamlessly integrate the new Demantra demand planning system being implemented by NBCA with the JD Edwards DRP system.
C&A Technology took us through a structured visioning process that really worked. They performed targeted discovery on our current process leading us through a prototyping process that educated our people, communicated the concept and categorically demonstrated the advantages of the new and more formal approach to DRP leveraging the unused capability of our JD Edwards system. This also resulted in resolving a complex change management issue for our North America automotive OEM supply chain planning process which provided added value.”Jamison Rediehs

“Not only did the 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.
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.”James R.
