Implementation of Mobile Purchase Approvals for Quanta Services
Quanta Services is an American corporation that provides infrastructure services for electric power, pipeline, industrial, and communications industries.
Quanta Services turned to Version 1’s Approval Express for JD Edwards to help reduce delays and allow approvers to approve or reject Purchase Orders ‘on the go’ from whatever location they are at.
The Customer's Challenge
With the nature of work carried out by Quanta Services, many approvers do not log onto EnterpriseOne on a regular basis. However, they are required to log on in order to approve, reject or review purchase orders pending approval which often causes delays in the process as key approvers are remote and don’t always have access.
Quanta Services turned to Version 1’s Approval Express for JD Edwards to help reduce delays and allow approvers to approve or reject Purchase Orders ‘on the go’ from whatever location they are at. This allows approvers to see relevant information along with any media attached to the document without having to log onto EnterpriseOne.
Utilising Approval Express
Approval Express was implemented to process standard JD Edwards Purchase Order approval workflow messages within the Enterprise One installation at Quanta Services Inc. The new solution sits alongside the standard JD Edwards system with no modification to standard code but allows users to be presented with any relevant information regarding the approval allowing them to make an informed decision without having to log in to the Enterprise One system.
As a result of this engagement with Version 1, the following differences were delivered:
- Version 1 implemented Approval Express for Quanta on time and smoothly, with no additional hardware required.
- Quanta’s users can now approve or reject purchase orders from hundreds of geographic locations remotely on their mobile without logging into Enterprise One.
- Flexible templates allow additional data to be added with relative ease.
