“We have consolidated our system creating less cost and IT maintenance, provided the end-users with an intuitive interface and taken advantage of new functionality to streamline our business processes. We now have a platform for growth which has allowed us to plan for incremental projects to better manage costs and revenue in our business. I recommend Terillium to any JD Edwards customer considering an upgrade.” – Bob, IT Delivery Manager


Henny Penny’s vision for their ERP system was modeled after their products – one that is easy to operate, provides greater flexibility and lowers operating costs by:

  • Upgrading to JD Edwards EnterpriseOne version 9.1 to continue as a longtime Oracle JD Edwards customer current on support
  • Providing an open system capable of integrating to other business applications and external partners
  • Allow for business growth and global functionality to support manufacturing in China
  • Simplifying and converting hundreds of reports and configuration rules


Henny Penny’s products and complete start-up, service, training and technical support, are all available through their exclusive worldwide distributor network. Delivering a strategic plan to move to the latest release of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne while supporting future growth of that network was a crucial part of the journey and included:

  • Providing a roadmap to and beyond an upgrade, including improvements to Advance Pricing, Inventory Management and Transportation Management after completion of the initial upgrade project
  • Positioning the team for future benefits with an upcoming costing project
  • Decreasing server space and moving to an open platform
  • Decreasing IT maintenance by eliminating multiple platforms and databases


Henny Penny’s successful implementation resulted in the delivery of a platform to facilitate future business growth and was recognized by Oracle as the “Customer Success Story of the Year.” Henny Penny is now benefiting from:

  • Reduced IT cost by using open integration architecture
