Recent Enterprise System Projects

PSGi's team of Performance Management Consultants working side-by-side with our customers have been improving their business processes, using more of their ERP systems to address current requirements and augmenting their systems with new functionality.  These companies using PRISM, PRMS, JD Edwards and other legacy software products continue to invest in their systems.  They are achieving high rates of return while meeting stringent customer and marketplace requirements.  Here is a sampling of recent projects we have completed:

  • Massive upgrade project at global adhesives company completed.  In order to remain compliant with IBM support requirements and prepare to move to a new datacenter with new equipment, our customer needed to upgrade 10 separate IBM i environments (3 development and 7 production) to the latest OS release  These systems support divisions all over the world and employ both single and double byte characters!

Upgrading the OS required all of the customer’s software applications to be compliant with the latest OS level.  PSGi led the project to upgrade many mission critical systems including the company financial systems (JDE World), EDI (Trusted Link), Barcode (Barcode 400), and system / developer tools such as Aldon, RDB, Prodata, and others.   Working with the IT department and the users, we installed and tested the environments before go-live and afterwards provided go-live support.  

The upgrade of each system was performed in a rolling schedule over several months.  Without exception each go-live was deemed extremely successful, there was no business disruption, and no software issues during the process.

  • Implemented raw material lot traceability in PRISM with bar coding at global food manufacturer and distributor at 2 factories on each US coast.  Manufacturer is now in compliance with it’s customers’ traceability requirements.

Developed Sales Rep Mobile Application at national tape manufacturer for finished goods inventory and ATP visibility in the field allowing them to place orders with the confidence the goods would be delivered as promised and enhance customer satisfaction.
