Client Reference Letter:

The City of Pittsburgh uses JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Technologies to Lower Costs and Embrace Innovation!

The Challenge:

The City of Pittsburgh Office of Management & Budget (“OMB”) was seeking to design of future state business processes leveraging the City’s existing investment in the J.D. Edwards Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)

While the system was originally set-up to support a traditional requisition-to-purchase order process, the current business processes and practices had not been implemented in that manner, and the City wanted to redesign its business processes to be more in line with best practices.

At the time the J.D. Edwards system was used to create purchase orders as merely a means to process invoices after a purchase has already been made. There was very little data completed in the available fields and that data was very inconsistent and therefore practically unsuitable for the analysis that the City would like to do.

The Services:

- Expanded use of item master, catalog, and punch-out capabilities;
- More robust and on-demand reporting capabilities;
- Automated purchase order and invoice matching rules and exception processes;
