SIG JD Edwards at Scherpenhuizen

On 25 September Scherpenhuizen, exporter of fresh fruits and vegetables, will explain about upgrading from 8.9 to 9.2 in JD Edwards at their new distribution center in Eindhoven. What difficulties did they need to overcome in their journey?

In cooperation with Oracle, Forza Consulting has gathered some interesting topics that will be presented:

  1. New lease accounting standards were defined by the FASB and IFRS which will be due by 1st of January 2020. Oracle released new features in Financial Management to help private companies comply to these standards. How should they be implemented?
  2. In 2015 Oracle released functionality for Voucher Match Automation. By using this feature you could automatically match vouchers if they are an exact match or even if they are within whatever you setup to be allowed. Depending on your business you may not want to put effort in a Voucher that is either 0,02 or 0,10 eurocents off. Let’s investigate possibilities and see how this should be set up.
  3. Scherpenhuizen sends it fruits and vegetables on pallets in plastic boxes to their customers, and these plastic boxes are returned by the customers. In order to encourage customers to return the reusable plastic boxes, a deposit system can be put in place for which tracking and tracing of the plastic boxes is needed. A hidden gem in JD Edwards is Container Management which can handle these transactions. A demonstration will be given on how this works.

In addition to these sessions, Scherpenhuizen will show us around in their distribution center that was only recently completed (in 2017).

Please note: we can only have a limited number of attendees on this meeting. Sign up early!
