Presentation Title: Customer Story: Mapeley Estates Consolidates Systems & Puts JD Edwards at the Heart of the Business

Presentation Abstract: Mapeley Estates is a high performing UK property management company, owning and managing over 880 office and retail assets in every major UK town. Reporting and month end on JDE was a real issue. Because of the structure of the chart of accounts to get their month end consolidation reports they had to extract large amounts of data from JDE into a separate reporting & consolidation tool every month. This caused 3 problems -

• Month end was slow as extracting and updating the separate consolidation tool was a slow process and adjustments made in the consolidations tool were not always reflected back in JDE

• The consolidations tool only held the GL balances, so users couldn’t see the transactions in their reports

• Budget amounts were not being held in JDE, so users couldn’t get Actual vs Budget reports until after each months data had been transferred

In 2014 Mapeley Estates decided it was time to change, to make JDE the heart of their systems and have real time access to live JDE data. The first job was to sort out the JDE Chart of Accounts so that it reflected the business today. The next challenge was how to get those real time reports out of JDE.

Mapeley Estates were also planning to upgrade their JDE and Windows systems. Unfortunately their current version of the consolidations tool was incompatible with this new environment and would require a lengthy and costly upgrade. Having seen Hubble after attending the inVision User Conference they decided to create a new set of live reports and consolidations that read data straight from JDE so no large data extracts were required.

As well as creating these new reports and consolidations, Mapeley Estates decided to hold their budget numbers in JDE, speeding up month end and saving the finance team 30 man days every month.

Attend this 45 minute presentation and hear first-hand how Hubble is enabling Mapeley Estates to -

• Make the most out of their investment in JDE

• Reduce the cost of upgrading their IT systems

• Improve data integrity and shorten the month end by 30%

• Reduce the number of systems users have to use

• Give their users in finance and beyond instant access to live data in JDE
