Fletcher Building is a leading New Zealand-based manufacturer, specializing in the production, distribution and retail sales of building products. The company also implements major construction and infrastructure projects.
Mico Plumbing (NZ) and Tradelink (Aus) – are two business units of Fletcher Building, both were using an old version of JD Edwards OneWorld Xe for the past 20 years, which is now out of support from Oracle, leading to an elevated business risk.
In 2019, Fletcher Building engaged Infosys to upgrade it to the latest JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.2 platform release. This meant upgrading across 7 releases to become current, bringing both Mico Plumbing and Tradelink to the latest Fletchers shared platform JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.2 release.
Infosys successfully executed this complex upgrade while overcoming several legacy system upgrade challenges along with the disruption caused by COVID-19. Despite a 3-months Covid-19 stand down period, the overall project execution was successfully completed.
“For two of our major business units, Mico and Tradelink, Infosys performed smooth and flawless ERP deployments – on-time, within budget and with near-zero business impact. Exactly what one wants from an ERP project!
No wonder the feedback from both units was that this was the most professional and well-executed ERP project they have ever been involved with.”
