Belfor Gains A Global ERP Solution with JD Edwards

Belfor Gains A Global ERP Solution with JD Edwards

Belfor, an emergency construction and restoration company that repairs damage quickly, smoothly and cost-effectively, needed to implement an ERP system that supports business growth with minimal business interruption

The Client

Belfor is the leading global fire, water and storm damage restoration and repair company. Belfor’s vision required an ERP solution that could support their double-digit business growth, allowing Belfor to minimize business interruptions for them and their clients by:

  • Replacing legacy systems that were outdated, unstable and unable to support the growth of the organization for now and the long term future of Belfor
  • Implementing a fully integrated Global Construction Company ERP Solution that is built on industry leading best practices that will support compliance, gains in efficiencies, risk mitigation and a high level of reporting across the enterprise

The Challenge

On the journey to replacing an outdated legacy system that could not maintain the growth that they were experiencing, Belfor identified the need for an ERP system designed not only for the construction and service industry, but one that could handle other lines of business, such as janitorial, landscaping, facility management and distribution. JD Edwards EnterpriseOne met these requirements, providing:

  • An integrated, world class system designed for the construction and service industry, and more
  • An up-front global design that could be repeated for 120 locations in the US and Canada
  • An open system capable of integrating to third party business applications for data collection and document management

Our Solution

Terillium lived up to the Belfor promise: “To strive to do our best, every time, to ensure the best interest is always at the forefront, to stand behind our word and to give you our all – every second, every minute, every day.”

Terillium put this promise into action with delivery of a project that was on time and within budget, giving Belfor:

  • A shortened monthly financial closing process of three days
  • Improved cash flow by using workflow and electronic data collection to compress customer billing cycle
  • Real time visibility to job cost and customer data through web based applications
  • Better efficiency in data entry and information retrieval by merging multiple sources of information
Through the recommendation of Oracle and Terillium’s customer references we had only received glowing recommendations. The common theme to those recommendations was the project came in on time and within budget. I was so amazed when we finally selected Terillium and put the project plan in action that the experienced project consultants did as promised. We would recommend Terillium to anyone considering this type of project.
