Focal Point Brightens its Manufacturing Business Strategy with JD Edwards

Focal Point designs and manufactures superior, specification-grade architectural lighting and looked to JD Edwards to improve business process efficiency

The Client

Focal Point is a Chicago-based, family-owned and operated company dedicated to advancing the Art of Light®. Focal Point was running on a highly customized and unsupported AS400-based system that was not scalable to meet the growing demands of the business.  Additionally the company saw opportunities to gain efficiencies by retiring legacy systems, integrating processes, and leveraging standardized data for strategic business decisions.

The Challenge

Terillium provided strong program management across multiple projects to deliver new business benefits to Focal Point. Focal Point wanted to make improvements to the following parts of the business:

  • Manufacturing operations
  • Procurement
  • Project management: quote to cash
  • Product Engineering
  • Finance

Our Solution

  • JDE module expertise for JDE 9.1 applications
  • Key technical development expertise for business driven modifications, data cleanup, interface development, and data mapping activities
