Comments: Unfortunately, I did not work with JD Edwards anymore, but it was a excellent ERP.
In my opinion it is the best ERP in the market. I have worked with this ERP for more than twelve years, as a key user. It is flexible and easy to customize and has a good support. For Manufactirung module, I think it is the best.
As it is easy to customize, when you need to update or upgrade the ERP, you have to spend more time testing.
Comments: JDE has made most of our processes significantly easier and more accurate.
Integration was exactly as expected. JDE has been integral to our success in managing the financials, inventory management, supply chain management. It's also easy to integrate other pieces of specialized software.
JDE requires a good amount of IT help to make any updates or adjustments this leads to upgrades happening slower than we'd like.
9 years of experience with JD Edwards software: Opinion, The single, worst piece of CMMS software I have Ever used.
The only positive remark I can make about JDE CMMS is that it will be going away at this location, Soon
NOT user-friendly: at other locations I have trained Production AND Maintenance personnel in the use of CMMS / work order entry very effectively. From the most savvy computer users to old guy who didn't even know what a mouse was for. JDE: like pulling teeth to get them to use the system at all because it is so difficult to learn and counter-intuitive to most users. Not efficient: First red flag I found in JDE was that it took more than 20 clicks / selections (at best - assuming ALL default selections could be accepted) to simply PRINT 1 Work Order. While working thru that process, it was necessary to indicate, at least twice, (this is a computer folks, why would you be required to repeat the object to be printed. (First step- select the W/O, then about step 8 or 10 it had to be selected again.) This was eventually corrected to allow a SINGLE W/O to be printed in 2 clicks, but multiple selections still require these steps. Not intuitive: there are (or were) places in JDE where selecting a RED X is/was required to SAVE steps accomplished in a process. This may have been changed to a green check or a disk in recent updates, but it still begs the question. ?WHY would ANY software make such a selection necessary? EVER.? Did I mention,... NOT Efficient: using other (very effective) software, the old guy (as well as most anyone else) could enter the critical data for a Work order in under 30 seconds after maybe a couple weeks of use. at this point, (9 years, 3 updates later) even I, the most experienced user on the CMMS System, cannot enter the data necessary to create a W/O in less than 3 minutes. and it does not just work orders that consume valuable time. most of the processes in JDE require so many repetitive actions, that it is sickening to watch some of the individuals perform their daily tasks from purchasing, inventory functions, etc. because so much time is wasted in the process. and to top it all off, from early on (to present day) when I was observing some of the folks who work with me perform those daily tasks, I noticed them exiting the process, then returning to the process, as though they were double checking the entries. when I inquired about this action / repeated steps, I was told that on occasion it was possible for you to "time-out" on your JDE access, and have absolutely Zero indication that had occurred. so all of these folks had gotten in the habit of exiting then re-entering to verify the information did indeed get saved to the system. I actually had a hard time believing this could happen, with no indication, until it happened to my co-worker who was working with me at the desk next to mine and I personally witnessed it. (less than 6 months ago)
EnterpriseOne - It's Enough
Comments: Overall, EnterpriseOne does what it sets out to be, a capable and reliable, ERP system. Beyond that, it does not probably hold a candle to more expensive and robust ERP systems.
It's rather simple to pick up and learn, comes with a lower cost entry to pricing point, handles our massive manufacturing opps well enough. It's clips along at a solid pace, so less time waiting results to query.
E1 is difficult to automate. Our robotics team requires endless loops, checks, and tests to ensure the automation software is working appropriately with E1. Additionally, E1 didn't have the capability to handle retail operations when we entered that market recently. Finally, the base "vanilla" E1 package lacks some features that might be considered standard elsewhere; such as good reporting functions.
JDE, customizable but NOT user friendly at all
Comments: Once you become familiar with its interface, it becomes just a little bit easier to manage, but, from a very personal point of view, its user interface is the worst on the market.
JDE is very customizable and configurable, you can download real time informatiom to be managed and polished in MS excel. It can be as simple and easy as you want or as complicated as it is. It can meet your company needs BUT it will require constant backup from a well trained and dedicated expert.
Its very expensive, and it requires a lot of trainning and knowledge to be managed. New users tend to feel overwhelmed with the interface. Some of the options can be duplicated on the screens, they can be simplified and merged but, again, it will require constant backup from a well trained and dedicated expert.
Fair experience on my 8 years of using this Software
I used this program on the manufacturing and shipping department . When creating my production work orders i had to go through several steps, but once you find the way to do things is easy, and just add to your favorites for much easier and faster access. I used customer order reports , the only thing i needed to enter was the customer number / date ranges and will bring up every detail. Also Excel export is very simple.
I wish that every job that is done can be found easier on my jobs list . Sometimes i wanted to find an specific document and i needed to keep clicking on almost every single one until found the desired one.
Powerful ERP software that is as good as your developers
Comments: It's a powerful tool, but we still rely on our in-house developers to craft applications within E1 to perform the tasks that we want. My understanding is that it is highly configurable but that requires trained individuals.
E1 is in all aspects of our business. We create bills of material and routings for our products. It is our time clock. It manages our inventory. It is tied to our sales, billing, and procurement. We need it to function.
I wish querying the database was a little more straightforward.
Comments: We use it for manufacturing. We have a lot of modifications. I an creating a new system for the users right now - a commercial invoicing system with history, edit and reprint capability.
Using it since 1993, It is like home. I can make it do anything. Oracle does a good job with support and creating new features and technologies.
I wish more places use it. Oracle needs to market it better.
a well interconnected ERP for manufacturing companies
easy to configure, deploy and train in short period of time, ideal for small and medium companies, cost effective ERP System
too much customization might cause an issue with upgrades, else no cons noted
you need a reliable ERP software, JDE offers the solution
Ease of useSupport help when needed Several support forums when needed
At times, reports takes longer than desired
I use E1 daily. I use it at my construction company for accounting.
It has a lot of capabilities. I can pull reports, enter journal entries, and manage budgets. There are a lot of facets about it that I have yet to learn.
I wish there was a place to add notes when I do budget adjustments. Currently I can only add notes when I do vendor updates in address book and when I enter journal entries. However, in the budget revisions I wish I could add notes for support to each budget adjustment. I also wish there were ways to launch multiples reports at a time. I can use report launcher to launch reports that do not need to have any of their data selection changed, but I wish there was to a ways to launch all my reports that have only one data selection that needs to be changed. For example, in November, if I run a bunch of reports that all have the same date criteria, I wish I would enter a "header" criteria and then select all the reports that the "header" criteria would apply to.
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne - Robust and feature-rich ERP Software
Comments: As a user and developer for JD Edwards for the last 15 years I am still learning new things of the software everyday. That's how feature-rich this software is and thanks to the continued development by Oracle it looks like JD Edwards will continue to stay relevant in the near future.
JD Edwards ERP software has been around for a while. But even now under the Oracle umbrella the software continues to be developed further and useful new tools like the Orchestrator add to its capabilities.
Little things like for example the issue that E1pages have with the latest Chrome Browser update. At least a fix is available now from Oracle but it requires upgrading to the latest Tools Release.
I like this better than SAP
Comments: This has been very useful to me and to my team. We solved a lot of problems using this software. Generating reports is easy too.
I like the interface of JD Edwards. Navigating is easy for me than when I do SAP.
The wild card in Search allows the user to search any entry that matches. However, when a user use the wildcard * and did not add any more characters, the system hangs up because it will generate ALL entries. I wish there is a way for user to cancel when they accidentally do it.
Lots of options to work with. Very flexible, allows multiple facets to operate from same database.
Comments: consolidating all departments into one database. Ease of use compared to multiple different platforms used in the past.
Lots of functionality. Able to operate entire business (finance, AP, production, shipping and receiving) from the same interface. Able to keep area segregated while operating from the same database interface.
Lots of options to learn and different ways to perform actions. Can get confusing at first but gets easier as you go.
Comments: My team is able to use JD Edwards to obtain contracted work, track invoicing and overall project budgets.
JD Edwards allows my team to tracking purchase order processing and invoicing in a timely and efficient way.
To use JD Edwards, you have to have a good bit of training. There are many screens and it often is not easy to navigate.
Very convenience, and easy to understand
Comments: Multiple reports can be generated for tracing and tracking.
Inventory control, stock sheet, stock by location, reporting by monthly, weekly, daily, date, PO, and so on.
The specific modification are very limited to change or adjustment for example some expire date or comment, it is supposed to be adjustable for particular user to make it more convenient.
HUGE and Bulky, but gets the job done!
Comments: Great for Extra Large companies.
Flexible so will allow almost anything to be done with the correct programming. Can basically do anything your large company requires
So huge you will need full time staff to take care of it. Requires a team of IT and Accountants to make sure it's running smooth and as desired.
Outstanding Accounting Software
This is one of the most all inclusive software's I have used for accounting. The interface is simple to navigate for daily use, and complex enough for expert users to really get alot out of the accounting information.
I dont have any cons for this software at this point.
Used JDE since 2003
Great reporting tool and can be applied to almost any type of business, from manufacturing, to customer service, and finance.
Yo can get confused, since there are different ways to get to the same path or screen. It can sometimes not be as user friendly as you'll wish.
Does well for what it's meant to do
JD Edwards is a powerful tool and does well with what it's supposed to do. If maintained and audited regularly, it performs well.
JD Edwards requires about quite a bit of expensive maintenance to make it run at its full potential.
I really like that it timestamps each action that is done and records the name of the person that has done the action.
Setting up searcher can be somewhat confusing. Searching in some fields isn’t allowed.
It can do all the simple tasks quickly.
The more in depth tasks, like reporting it either does not have the functions or they take to much time to complete.
Very comprehensive. Able to meet our needs for R&D, Production, Billing & Shipping, Inventory, AP.
Not easily customized without a JDE expert on staff.
Does its job but is hard to use
It puts everything in one place and submitting time off does not take long
It is really hard to find what you need and the overall layout of the page feels very cluttered. There are multiple options that do almost the same thing which can be confusing
Good Visualization Software
it helps to visualize the inventory and that leads to control the stock. With this software, we are able to improve our forecast and planning.
would like to have spell check with auto choices. Needs to improve coordination with external software.
