Kertios deployed a complete ERP solution for a European leader in frozen desserts.

Under the guidance of the headquarters teams, the implementation of a JD Edwards Core Model was carried out as part of an ambitious project covering 18 countries worldwide. The functional scope covered Sales, Purchasing, Inventory, Finance, Production, and Quality.

The schedule established by the Group underestimated the complexity of the deployment project. However, Kertios teams were able to start production of the solution according to the original schedule by prioritizing critical functionalities to manufacture, ship and bill products.

The JD Edwards solution implemented by Kertios replaced a pre-existing, costly and complex SAP solution, providing the client with a simpler and more suitable application for their business.
