G&W Electric Enhances its Global Operations Strategy with JD Edwards

G&W Electric is a global supplier of electric power equipment and chose JD Edwards EnterpriseOne to enable global operations management

The Client

G&W products are designed to the latest industry standards and backed by more than 105 years of engineering expertise. The result is time-proven, reliable performance. G&W Electric was running a 20-year-old highly customized solution that did not enable the business’ global operations strategy. The company was facing many challenges including:

  • Manual, inconsistent, people-intensive business processes with limited use of automation to improve efficiency
  • Fragmented, inconsistent and inaccessible data
  • The inability to handle foreign currencies or operations within the platform
  • A constrained system environment hindered by mixed-mode manufacturing capability
  • The inability to use the system as an enabler for lean shop floor practices
  • An outdated, unsupported platform

The Challenge

G&W is a small company that needed a big company solution. Terillium designed and implemented 35 new process improvements to connect the areas of the business that were disjointed.

Our Solution

Terillium delivered solutions that provided G&W with:

  • A modern, supported platform
  • The capacity to manage global operations
  • Lean shop floor practices
