The Value of
No matter what they ultimately produce, every business today is a technology business. Without the proper technology infrastructure in place, businesses cannot compete in today’s global marketplace. That’s true for large retailers, local bakeries, and everyone in between.
I’ve helped businesses optimize technology to allow them to operate smoothly for the past 28 yearsAs the general manager of ICT, I helped the company implement an Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne system. This enterprise resource planning system worked across all business units and was delivered on schedule and on budget.
I also developed the company’s Corporate Strategy for Technology, which precisely aligned technology with business objectives and overall goals. I then established the IT Master Plan that, combined with the technology budget, helped us reduce IT expenses and operating costs.
That was just what I did internally. Overall, IT leaders help companies in a wide range of sectors to use technologies such as mobile, cloud, process optimization, automation, and integration, all with the goal of improving operations.
Here are some of the other large-scale internal projects we completed that could be leveraged elsewhere.
We created an ERP Operating Model within our enterprise, including change management for upgrades, user change requests, and on boarding procedure for new users.
We developed and implemented the Smart Enterprise Strategy across the corporation, redefining and simplifying the interaction within all of the entities through digital. This included Self Services interfaces for employees, suppliers and customers.
We initiated and managed joint business projects with key customers and suppliers to leverage the collaboration through technology and systems integration, which resulted in sales growth, better A/R collection rates, and payments.
Over the years, I have a proven track record of driving projects in several industries. While my experience is mainly in retail, I’ve found my skills can help organizations in almost any industry, from consumer goods and vehicles to manufacturing and real estate.
Every organization needs technology. But without the right technology, a business risks falling behind their competitors. With the right technology, we can help your business rise above the competition.
