Stefanini IT Solutions Offers Nearshore Support Services for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne
Support Teams in the U.S. and Latin America Address Range of ERP Needs
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - April 2, 2009) - Stefanini IT Solutions (www.stefanini.com), a global provider of IT consulting, integration and development, and outsourcing services, announced today they are providing JD Edwards EnterpriseOne support services to North America from teams located in both the U.S. and nearshore in Latin America, providing productivity and cost advantages.
Stefanini's support locations in Brazil, Mexico and other Latin American countries, allow the company to provide services that are more timely and cost-efficient for North American companies. Some of the benefits of providing these services both in the U.S. and nearshore in Latin America include business hours that are in sync, and time zone and cultural compatibility. Stefanini's highly-experienced professionals are able to assist in the three main JD Edwards enterprise resource planning system areas of expertise: functional business, programmer-development, and technical CNC-system administration.
The JD Edwards EnterpriseOne services provided by Stefanini include:
-- Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Control - JD Edwards workflow software to manage development cycles according to SOX standards.
-- Upgrading SQL Server to 2005 version - Providing Oracle support to older versions expired in April 2008.
-- Archive/Purge Process - Archiving old data in JD Edwards.
-- Application Tuning - Performance tuning methodology.
-- JD Edwards EDI interfaces
"Stefanini's JD Edwards support services for the North American market are a great alternative for corporations," said Antonio Moreira, Stefanini's CEO of North America. "Our flexible and phased-in approach allows us to provide companies the right mix of on-site and off-site resources, allowing them to reduce overall costs while assuring that their business objectives are met."
HNI Corp., a large office furniture manufacturer and JD Edwards EnterpriseOne user in Muscatine, Iowa, brought Stefanini onboard instead of venturing to the Far East to augment its IT staff.
"After working with outsourcers in India for a decade, and having traveled to Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong, I've come to realize that outsourcing locations closer to the U.S., such as Brazil, offer fewer hurdles to collaboration which results in projects being completed faster and in the end much more cost effectively," said Mike Roelf, applications manager at HNI.
