Johnson Outdoors Ventures into Modern ERP with Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Upgrade

As an international brand for adventurers, Johnson Outdoors recently upgraded to modern ERP with Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.2.

The Client

As an international brand for adventurers, Johnson Outdoors strives for excellence on all company initiatives from back-end processes to customer experience. In keeping with this spirit, Johnson Outdoors recently decided to upgrade the business’ global ERP system – Oracle JD Edwards from JD Edwards Enterprise Xe to the latest version of EnterpriseOne (9.2). The leadership team at Johnson Outdoors chose Terillium as their partner based on the team’s experience upgrading businesses to 9.2, as well as Terillium’s partnership with Redfaire International – an international consortium of the world’s leading Oracle JDE partners.

The Challenge

While Johnson Outdoors is headquartered in Racine, Wisconsin, the JD Edwards upgrade project also included 15 additional sites around the world. The main project objectives were to:

  • Upgrade to a modern web-based ERP solution, enhancing the end user experience through the latest technologies available in JDE
  • Move to a platform with an ongoing support plan and timeline for new product releases
  • Review and reduce the number of ERP customizations where applicable, with more than 3,500 modifications reviewed

Our Solution

Terillium delivered:

  • A modern, updated ERP interface and platform
  • Leadership and a proven methodology, which allowed the customer to focus on the critical path and deploy without business disruption
  • Ability to stay current with JDE applications, localization and tools releases
  • An on-time and on-budget ERP system upgrade
We chose to continue our investment in Oracle JD Edwards through an upgrade, versus moving to new ERP software. The transition from Xe to 9.2 was a huge leap in technology. With the help of the Terillium team, we made the transition quickly and smoothly. The project opened our eyes to what’s possible with E1 and we look forward to all the benefits it will provide.
