Leveraging Managed Services to support JD Edwards and centralize operations to support growth
MYR Group is a Top 5 ENR U.S. Specialty contractor with segments in commercial and industrial, transmission and distribution. Their need for efficiency and modernization was met by JD Edwards EnterpriseOne.
Quanta previously chose JD Edwards to manage their finances and operations. However, Quanta’s unique operational model had historically allowed acquired business units to independently manage their own operations and finances and report results “up through the chain”. While some business had been migrated to Quanta’s JDE, many remained on their own ERP of choice. A subsequent adjustment in corporate strategy forced a change in this federalized approach and Quanta’s IT and business teams were faced with the daunting task of migrating every business unit onto Quanta’s JD Edwards system.
While Quanta has deep functional and technical expertise with JD Edwards they lacked the resources to staff such a large undertaking. So they turned to Argano for help. Quanta enlisted Argano to join their rollout teams with our industry-leading stable of engineering and construction-focused implementation consultants. In a unique move, Argano’s Managed Services team has also been engaged to handle remote configuration and testing activities to take some of the load off the onsite teams.
By taking advantage of Argano’s industry expertise, Quanta has extended its team exponentially. With both onsite and remote resources working alongside the Quanta team Argano has helped speed up the migration to JD Edwards timeframes for the many business units still operating their own ERP. With this expanded resource capacity Quanta has been able to focus on more than one unit at a time and get more of them live on JD Edwards and faster than originally planned.
