APR Energy Upgrades Enterprise Resource Planning System to Incorporate New Web-Based Functionality and Streamline Financial Processes. 

The Challenge:
APR Energy is the world’s leading provider of fast-track mobile power generation solutions, serving approximately 25 million people around the world. Within weeks, they can deliver large blocks of power that can
run entire cities or industrial operations, anywhere around the globe. The reliable power APR Energy provides helps foster economic growth, socio-political stability and an overall improved quality of life for the dozens of countries they serve.

Serving both developed and developing markets, APR Energy sells electricity and generation capacity to utilities, countries, and industries that have critical power deficits or that require dedicated, distributed, or seasonal generation
solutions. To support its growing business, APR needed a robust system that could be deployed in developing nations without large scale Internet structures. APR also wanted to streamline operations, enhance financial performance, and  improve overall visibility across the enterprise.

The Services:
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.0 - Upgrade Services with Business Process Reengineering

The Vision:
The company knew for future growth it needed to roll out a more formal and validated enterprise resource planning (ERP) environment to standardize and accelerate processes, extend visibility across the enterprise, allow for scalability, and ensure compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley segregation of
duty requirements.

Minimize excess inventory and ensure more efficient trade spend management, consolidate processes critical to the company’s consumer packaged goods business to reduce the cost of maintaining and hosting standalone software,
and streamline operations to enhance financial performance.
 
The Solution:
Upgraded JD Edwards EnterpriseOne applications because of it's new web-based solution and it's engineering and construction industry strengths in project costing. By redesigning the Chart of Accounts APR gained the ability to close financial books in just five days versus two-and-a-half-weeks with the legacy system. Introduced best practices for financial management, procurement, job costing and billing, and more to optimize return on investment, replacing manual business processes that were effort-intensive and disjointed and prevented enterprise visibility.

Grant system access to users, based on business requirements and standardized security best practices using a role-based security model, ensuring only appropriate users have access to critical information.

Standardize the menu structure and automate displaying only those programs that each user is allowed to see, based on their user role, replacing manual control processes that users could circumvent.

Streamline procurement processes to enhance expense reporting capabilities.

Establish a firm deadline for project completion, to meet a short, very aggressive, window of opportunity for implementation.
