Years of growth fueled by a variety of small and large acquisitions in key markets decentralized operations and made it difficult to manage, so this leading integrated infrastructure solutions provider turned to Managed Services to support JD Edwards.
MYR Group is a Top 5 ENR U.S. Specialty contractor with segments in commercial and industrial, transmission & distribution. Their need for efficiency and modernization was met by JD Edwards EnterpriseOne.
Many years ago, Quanta chose JD Edwards to manage their finances and operations and they chose ArganoCSS to help them with that initial implementation. Quanta has been a flagship JD Edwards account ever since. However, Quanta’s unique operational model has historically allowed the acquired ”Op U’s” to independently manage their own operations and finances and report results “up through the chain”, so to speak. While some Op U’s had been migrated to Quanta’s JDE, many remained on their own ERP of choice. A recent adjustment in corporate strategy forced a change in this federalized approach and Quanta’s IT and business teams were faced with the daunting task of migrating every Operating Unit onto Quanta’s JD Edwards system.
The ArganoCSS Approach
While Quanta has deep functional and technical expertise with JD Edwards they didn’t have the resources to staff such a large undertaking. So they called ArganoCSS to help. Quanta enlisted ArganoCSS to join their rollout teams with our industry-leading stable of Engineering and Construction-focused implementation consultants. In a unique move, ArganoCSS’s Managed Services team has also been engaged to handle remote configuration and testing activities to take some of the load off the onsite teams.
By reaching out to ArganoCSS and taking advantage of our industry expertise, Quanta has extended its team exponentially. With both onsite and remote resources working alongside the Quanta team ArganoCSS has helped speed up the migration to JD Edwards timeframes for the many Operating Units still operating their own ERP. With this expanded resource capacity Quanta has been able to focus on more than one Operating Unit at a time and get more Op U’s live on JD Edwards faster than originally planned.
What our client says
“Industry experience was key here. It was clear from the start that the ArganoCSS team had that knowledge. ”
