JBT FoodTech has chosen Oracle JD Edwards and Sinfo One as a partner.
Implementation times were very rapid: four months from project kick off to go live.
The costs were limited and remained fully within the set budget.
The very positive experience of the Italian reality influenced the choices of the group in Europe: it was decided to entrust all the implementations of JDE to Sinfo One, in particular the projects in Belgium and Holland.
Oracle JD Edwards has become a key element in implementing new strategies and improving processes.
