Acme Brick Gains New Business Tools with Upgrade to JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.2

Acme Brick Gains New Business Tools with Upgrade to JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.2

An American manufacturer and distributor of bricks and masonry-related materials since 1891, Acme Brick upgraded to the latest version of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne to gain access to the latest tools offered.

The Client

Acme Brick has a long history in providing quality masonry materials to its customers. As with many businesses that have been in operation for decades, they needed to upgrade their technology to continue operating as a modern organization. Acme Brick was running JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.0 across most of the company, but aimed to take advantage of the new features that EnterpriseOne 9.2 offers. Additionally, their HR department was already on 9.2, so making the upgrade brought the entire organization onto the same version.

The Challenge

Acme Brick wanted to stay up-to-date on the most current JDE version available. Terillium played a supporting role within the upgrade project from JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.0 to 9.2. The main project objectives were to:

  • Upgrade to the most recent version of JD Edwards
  • Sync all areas of the company on the same version of JDE
  • Utilize new functionality their 9.0 version did not offer
  • Retrofit customizations and test them to ensure no new issues were introduced during the upgrade

Our Solution

Terillium provided Project Management guidance, as well as backup resources in both Technical and CNC areas. Terillium also delivered:

  • In-depth knowledge of EnterpriseOne 9.2 software setup
  • A proven methodology and leading-edge CNC knowledge that complemented Acme Brick’s CNC expertise
  • A project completed well in advance and significantly under budget
This is the second large project we have worked on with Terillium. The project went very well and Terillium was a pleasure to work with. Their expertise was extremely valuable. Terillium will be at the top of our list to consider for partners in future projects.
