A full ERP system designed for large enterprises running on the Oracle cloud.
Other features include:
Absolute Barking Dog of a program. In theory you can monitor down time and mean time between failures but this requires an army of highly skilled clerical people entering data into many different parts of the program with high levels of access. An incredibly expensive program to buy and a complex and expensive program to use and maintain. You are unlikely to see a positive return on investment from JDE.
You can export the contents of almost any screen to Excel or CSV to work with it outside JDE. Screens are vey configurable to show the information you need to see for the function you are performing.
Basic functionality for maintenance planning is available at additional cost or not available at all. Predicted dates for maintenance tasks are not dynamic and poorly calculated so not suitable for mobile plant. Plant can be overdue service but the planned date in JDE will still be some weeks away. You will need to export all your data to Excel or use another application to effectively plan your maintenance. There are a lot of better systems out there but none that are worse from a users point of view.
JD Edwards production E1 system has to be one of the worst systems I have ever used in my life. There is basically no way of teaching yourself how to use this system without a system without excessive manuals and even at that you’ll never know the full extent of the system.
We use an old JD Edwards EnterpriseOne ERP which has requires us to do a lot of hardcoding of commands. We looked at a demo of the new version and although the point and click features are nice, the reporting sucks and the information is horrible. Needing to upgrade for $1.2 million did not seem worth it. I believe there are more cost effective and better functioning programs out there.
Using HR, payroll, and GL - It’s not easy to use for our users, it’s old and antiquated, it’s not web based. We have problems using it from home or off site
