Everyone loves positive feedback. We are no exception. Fortunately, there's no lack
of positive comments from our consulting clients. Here's a sampling of client comments
from the past few months:
"I was extremely pleased with the trainer/consultant provided by Klee Associates.
Peter brought the optimal mix of JD Edwards knowledge, accounting knowledge and
real world experience. He asked the right probing questions and really listened
to our answers to ensure that he was meeting our needs." Kevin Smith, Director, Corporate
Finance, IMP Group International Inc.
"Brigitte has been very professional in her work with us at PTI Group. Brigitte
was able to quickly grasp what we wanted to accomplish and had some great ideas
on how to achieve our goals. She has a wide variety of implementation scenarios
in her background that she could draw information from. The demo that she put together
with not a lot of preparation time was very well received. It generated a lot of
interest in our using JDE for preventive maintenance. I highly recommend Brigitte
for any EAM project."Dianne Thornton, Business Support Analyst, PTI Group Inc.
"I brought in Klee Associates' consultants to carry out a training assessment exercise
for my user community. During the interviews conducted as part of the training assessment
work, I found out that the members of the Klee team had very in depth knowledge
of JD Edwards modules and were very proactive in identifying our issues and providing
recommendations to resolving them.
Based on the training assessment, I have engaged one of the members of the team
to work with the Human Resources/Payroll and Finance functions to resolve open issues
that has plagued the company since the Go-Live over a year ago.
The consultant has successfully resolved these issues and will be coming back in
April to implement some additional functionality for these modules.
I definitely recommend to any organization with JDE consulting and training needs
to engage Klee Associates consultants." Robert Babs Ajayi, Director, IT & Global
Applications, WireCo WorldGroup
"Eriez Magnetics couldn't have had a more experienced and resourceful consultant,
for the implementation of the MRP module, than Pat Martino. Given the unusual parameters
in which we had to work, Pat devised a distinctive approach to executing MRP. As
would be expected, this resulted in many modifications to standard practices. Pat
was incredibly thorough in making sure that all of the bases were covered and that
we understood which processes were being enhanced and the reasons for it. Several
very long days were put in as the deadline approached and Pat was tireless in his
commitment and guidance. In the future, if Eriez needs consulting help we know exactly
who we want it to be." Gary R. Finney, Product Structure Analyst, Eriez Manufacturing
"Midway through implementation at a new site, it became apparent that Hampton Hydraulics
needed to augment its relationship with our existing programming resources. I contacted
Klee Associates based on a word of mouth referral. Klee, in turn, recommended Kathy
Adams to fulfill our needs. Kathy has been absolutely fantastic, and in a short
time, not only augmented, but completely supplanted our previous resources. Kathy
has a broad JD Edwards functional consulting background with implementation and
training experience. That experience really sets her apart from traditional RPG
resources, and helps her bridge the gap between the code and desired functionality.
She is very responsive, works quickly, provides excellent communication & feedback
and returns quality, detail-oriented work. Less overall cost than our previous resource
is the cherry on top. Needless to say, Kathy has become our resource of choice for
all of Hampton's programming needs. I consider her a part of our extended team."
Michael J. Ziegler, Information Technology Manager, Hampton Hydraulics, LLC
"One of Michael's most impressive attributes is his breadth of knowledge. Not only
does he possess an in-depth knowledge of the many versions of EnterpriseOne, but
he is equally proficient with Unix, NT, and AS/400 Operating Systems, as well as
databases like Oracle and MS SQL. Michael's knowledge combined with his excellent
problem solving skills allows him to quickly adapt to any situation and provide
timely and accurate solutions. I strongly recommend Michael for any EnterpriseOne
CNC related consulting." Teri Benart, Vice President - Northern California JD Edwards
"Kathy is unmatched to any JDE consultant we've ever had at Transpro. She is an
absolute professional. The skill set she brings is great programming plus JDE knowledge.
She is patient and thorough. From the point of view of our project - we would not
have been able to do this in the time available without her. She is intuitive about
our needs. She is also imaginative when problem solving - when we hit a wall, she
had several different ideas to help us get past the issue. I'll be calling Klee
Associates and JDEtips a lot to get Kathy back, along with other Klee consultants."
Laury DiMarco, Business Systems Implementation Analyst, Transpro
"Robinson Brick Company, a 124-year-old Colorado brick manufacturing company and
long time JD Edwards' customer was in quick need of high-level Advanced Pricing
consulting. We called upon JDEtips who immediately recommended we use Russ Bartunek,
a Klee Associates, Senior Distribution Consultant and expert in the Advanced Pricing
arena. Russ smoke-jumped into Robinson Brick Company with a couple of days notice
and provided numerous tips, advanced knowledge, high level detailed expertise, and
demonstrated product setup utilizing Robinson Brick's data. With Russ' guidance,
Robinson Brick Company is currently in the process of implementing Advanced Pricing
functionality to all of its 13 locations. Thank you for providing outstanding demonstrated
product knowledge and immediate customer response." Kerrie Fischer, Senior Application
Analyst, Robinson Brick Company
"Susan has been an excellent resource for Nova Development. She was quick to understand
our particular processing needs, configure JD Edwards as was necessary and provide
clear, tailored user training in Distribution and Financials. Susan excels at researching
specific functions of JD Edwards and creating written user documentation that explains
not only how things are done, but also why." Peter Washburn, VP of Operations, Nova
"Pat has brought a lot of value to dj Orthopedics through his custom training sessions.
He tailored his presentations to address our specific process issues and questions.
We have especially found that Pat is great at matching up the true potential of
JD Edwards with the real life business challenges that are not text book or white
paper issues." Chris Shen, Manager, Enterprise Business Systems, dj Orthopedics
"There are two reasons we will continue to use your organization for supporting
our JD Edwards systems. First, the depth and validity of your consultants' knowledge
base is exceptional. We do not have the time or resources to function as a training
ground for consultants exploring new areas. The consultants you have provided to
us have been able to make an immediate impact on our projects. In addition, they
have made sure that they left us self-sufficient in those areas. Second, the value
provided by your organization strikes the right balance. Your rates are appropriately
aligned but more importantly, your associates keep a firm understanding of our needs
at the center of their work at all times. They have been excellent at advising us
on several possible courses of action while helping us determine which direction
most closely aligns with our abilities and system plans. We will not hesitate to
contact your team for our future JD Edwards work." Doug Dostal, Director of IT, Briggs
