How MYR Optimized their JDE Reporting Quickly and Easily

A recent FSN survey found that 97% of CFOs have doubts about reporting quality, 87% of accountants work overtime to complete their financial close, and 86% of finance teams say their analytics are not insightful. This lack in data mastery can be a result of relying on ERP systems like JD Edwards. JD Edwards data can be highly complex and distributed, based on the functions it provides for daily business processes. Data is stored in hundreds of pre-populated and non-populated tables, and most finance teams don’t have the time to learn the underlying table structures for building reports. That’s where MYR found themselves and what caused them to start looking for a way to make their JDE reporting quick and easy while producing reports filled with clarity and certainty. Join this session to discover how MYR empowered their finance team to:
•Reduce the number of reports created
•Easily create ad hoc reports
•Simplify report creation and deployment

Do you wish you had a better way to ensure accurate data? Now you do with default values using Orchestrator! Discover how you can default values based on another fields value. We walk you through an Orchestration that defaults fields within the Item Master to ensure that Item Maintenance is done correctly! Endless scenarios and possibilities!Accurate Accounting Reporting on Sales:
Discover how you can override processing options and submit jobs using Orchestrator. In this use case, we walk you through how Sales Order Update is submitted using yesterday’s date to ensure that all shipped orders are captured for accounting purposes even when shipping doesn’t end until the early hours of the next day.

Accurate and Up-to-date Inventory:
Who doesn’t want inventory updates in a timely manner? Updating safety stock each month can be time consuming and prone to manual data entry errors. It becomes even more of an issue when the first day of the month falls on a weekend. Eliminate weekend overtime and manual updates by letting Orchestrator update values based on effective dates.

Address Book Integrity:
This Notification through Orchestrator can be applied to unlimited scenarios. In this use case, we share with you how invalid address book setup is identified and notified back to the user; which ultimately, increases reporting accuracy and overall system processing!

Increase Revenue by Enabling Your Sales Team:
Enabling your Sales team with more information to quickly answer customer questions and react to changing market conditions increases revenue. Remember the introduction of mobile devices with email? It was a game changer for Salespeople to jump on opportunities, solve problems, and win deals faster.
