New Installations and Implementation
New to JDE Edwards? KS2 can help! We can help you get the right software configuration at the right price for your organization. We can help you select and implement the right Infrastructure – including IBM POWER, Oracle, Microsoft and Cloud! Our certified Project Managers, Consultants, and Technologists will help you implement on time and on budget.
Process Analysis and Improvement
Our JD Edwards team is unique in that over half of our functional consultants are also Industrial Engineers. Industrial engineering is a branch of engineering which deals with the optimization of complex processes, systems or organizations. Industrial Engineers work to eliminate waste of time, money, materials, man-hours, machine time, energy and other resources that do not generate value. At KS2 we leverage those principles and combine them with our knowledge of JD Edwards and our Client’s operations to provide unique and highly valuable solutions.
