Skanska Civil is one of the largest, most financially sound construction and development companies in the country with expertise in construction, civil infrastructure, public-private partnerships and commercial development initiatives in select U.S. markets. Skanska was seeking a hybrid Cloud solution, integrated to JD Edwards, to improve procurement within the organization.

Challenges


Skanska didn’t have visibility to their supplier community, putting them at risk for fines and non-compliance. Also, their current solution didn’t support their social commitments to diversity, sustainability and small business partnerships, and over all business growth. They needed a solution that would provide shared value and address all their current areas of risk.

The CSS Approach


By taking a holistic view of Skanska’s business, CSS implemented a hybrid solution that supports their corporate mission and social commitments, addresses compliance issues, and improves daily business operations—while also integrating with and upgrading their JD Edwards ERP solution to 9.2. Skanska also leverages application Managed Services from CSS for 24/7 support of JD Edwards. For more information on the project, review a webcast here.

Results

Skanska’s internal notion of “Cloud: Why Not Now?” helped drive the project to success. The Cloud Procurement / hybrid JD Edwards 9.2 implementation at Skanska has provided  significant impact on vendor qualification and sourcing.

The implementation of the solution also helps the organization with their ongoing commitment to diversity and sustaintability. With the Cloud Procurement solution and integration to JD Edwards, they:

  • bullet-point

    Documentation of Vendor Qualifications

  • bullet-point

    Zero customizations with JD Edwards 9.2 integration to Cloud
