Velocity Increases the Value of Cloud Applications for Phibro Animal Health
VCAMP™ Platform Takes JD Edwards to the Cloud, Adding Analytics and Proactive Alerting to Increase Agility and Reduce Risk
CHARLOTTE, NC (June 7, 2016) -- Access to analytics can bring great benefit to organizations seeking to improve their business processes and end user experience. Velocity Zoom™ data analytics software, one tier of Velocity’s Cloud Application Management Platform™ (VCAMP™), enables Phibro Animal Health Corporation to proactively manage its JD Edwards ERP system, improving responsiveness by predicting system usage. Zoom Notify™, the event notification module within Velocity Zoom, allows Phibro to manage changes in the system, as well as quickly respond to risky patterns of behavior.
Phibro Animal Health initially turned to Velocity Technology Solutions for its cloud hosting capabilities and managed application services, but soon realized the additional benefits of its management platform and Velocity Zoom business analytics software. Since it was implemented, Phibro has been able to balance the load on its systems due to the interactive batch and transaction heat maps available in the Velocity Zoom application. They now have visibility into peak load periods for any period of time, allowing them to leverage off peak periods in any time zone. The IT team at Phibro is also able to analyze its business process flows from various departments to identify consistencies, trends, and training opportunities it could not see previously and reduce the time to resolve issues by 50 percent.
Zoom Notify has been especially useful to the company. “We created an alert using Zoom Notify for our product managers when new products are added,” says Vince Kelly, Sr. Manager, Operational System for Phibro Animal Health. “With this capability, we can now ensure that safety data sheets are ready to go, with the latest pricing and ingredient lists in place. This has helped us dramatically improve our global communication and become a more proactive, rather than reactive, organization.”
“The metadata collected and presented in Velocity Zoom offers the transparency into the applications, systems and processes that enables organizations to take their enterprise application functionality further," says Paul Mockenhaupt, Senior Vice President of Innovation and Development at Velocity. "We host more JD Edwards implementations than anyone else, and we are pleased that Phibro is able to leverage that experience to their benefit."
Velocity provides expertise surrounding ERP configurations that supports business requirements as well as manages connectivity for all Phibro users around the globe. “Velocity’s application expertise for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne has enabled me to maximize my resources internally, so we can focus our time and effort on the end user experience on a global scale,“ says Mr. Kelly.
