Ascension Logistics recently completed a successful JDA WMS v8.2 go-live for Greatwide Logistics, one of the leading providers of truckload transportation and warehouse/distribution services in the U.S. and Canada.

Before the upgrade, Greatwide was running an unsupported operating system and needed additional hardware upgrades. They turned to Ascension Logistics for upgrade expertise and support. It was determined that upgrade was necessary both to stay on JDA’s upgrade path, and to be able to implement new hardware and streamline processes.

“We partnered with Ascension Logistics to perform our JDA WMS upgrade from 2007 to version 8.2.” said Dan Black, IT Manager at Greatwide Logistics. “Ascension was very knowledgeable and was willing to work with us as our business needs dictated. We had excellent resources assigned to our project. Our upgrade was completed on-time and well under budget. We had literally no operational impact because of the preparation, project management, thorough testing, and prompt assistance from Ascension. We will not hesitate to partner with Ascension Logistics for any future JDA WMS needs.”

Through open communication and partnership, Ascension and Greatwide were able to complete the software upgrade seamlessly to Greatwide’s customers. The project was completed 100% remotely, saving time and cost in travel and accommodations, and within 4 weeks of go-live, the project was still more than 150 hours below budget.
