Sunrise Medical aims for efficiency with JD Edwards roll-out
The production location of Sunrise Medical in Helmond went live with their JD Edwards ERP environment, finishing an excellent implementation project.
After many tests and with a clear go-live plan, Redfaire International and Sunrise were well prepared for the go-live weekend. Thanks to a staggered data conversion, there was plenty of time to enter open sales and purchase orders. The complex inventory conversion finally matched up to the penny, and that deserves a big compliment. After one month of hypercare, Sunrise Medical in Helmond is running stable and the first month-end closing is a fact.
The Redfaire International team and the key users of Sunrise Medical in the Netherlands have been working closely with the Global IT team in the United States over the past few months. The rollout of the existing JD Edwards solution from the United States has been supplemented with additional functionality. Sunrise has chosen to slightly deviate from the ERP template of Sunrise Global in the United States for the rollout in Europe. This new template is now fully documented making the company ready for a further roll out in Europe.
The Benefits of JD Edwards for Sunrise Medical
With this rollout, Sunrise Medical is taking the first step towards a fully integrated solution for all manufacturing and distribution sites worldwide. “With the rollout of an integrated JD Edwards environment we are going to work much more efficiently,” says Geert Feron, Operations Director of Sunrise Medical. “We have agreed on clear steps with Redfaire International by which we want to further optimize our system.” RFI consultants will continue to provide consultancy in the coming months to help users in Helmond make optimal use of the new system. The next step is to upgrade the system from version 9.1 to 9.2 with the latest tools release. After that the next roll-out projects in Europe will be started.
