Abstract: Innocor; Inc. strives to make the world a more comfortable place with their proven; innovative foam solutions. Innocor runs a hosted JD Edwards ERP system. The company was using a legacy reporting tool that just couldn't keep up. In fact; Innocor had a month-to-date and year-to-date trial balance report running in JDE that not only took hours; but also brought the system to its knees during close. Innocor needed modern reporting and analytics tools that could move at the speed of business. Toward this goal; Innocor implemented Preferred Strategies QuickLaunch and Microsoft Power BI. With the new tools; the breadth and speed of financial reporting dramatically increased; freeing up capacity in their job scheduler. The new initiative also had the result of increasing business user engagement in the company's MDM project now that users could easily access data through Power BI. FUN FACT: Innocor & Preferred Strategies began discussing the project at Collaborate 2018!
