CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 30, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Velocity Technology Solutions Inc., the global leader in enterprise application cloud services, announced its customer Casper will present its decision process and subsequent journey implementing JD Edwards in the cloud at a special workshop as part of COLLABORATE17.

Casper Sleep Inc,, named one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies in the World, recognized the need for an integrated finance and supply chain system as the company grew more complex; expanding their product lines and launching internationally in the U.K., Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. JD Edwards offered a strong fit for the business. A technology-first company, Casper recognized that running and managing back office systems was not a competency it wanted to embrace as its expansion continues.

Deciding on a cloud managed services provider was equally important, as the tech company sought a trusted advisor who could grow with it as its business evolved. Velocity’s flexible operating model, competitive pricing, and deep application expertise were the primary reasons Casper selected Velocity.

As a trusted cloud advisor, Velocity’s JD Edwards team chose AWS for this workload, managed by Velocity’s Cloud Applications Management Platform (VCAMP)™, to minimize business interruption and maximize flexibility for Casper.  Velocity is an Advanced Tier Partner with AWS. “No company, least of all one in explosive growth mode, can afford the disruption that a traditional implementation typically means,” said Judithe Kennedy, SVP of JD Edwards line of business at Velocity. “We were able to deliver Casper a full cloud solution that was ready within weeks, not months or years.”

Velocity Zoom® Analytics further enabled Casper to understand user adoption of JD Edwards and track its change management as it rolled out JD Edwards. With unprecedented speed, Casper’s team was able to log into its JDE environment at the end of its initial kickoff call with Velocity.

“The seamless JDE integration along with supporting insights provided by VCAMP and Velocity Zoom® Analytics have been important to the success of our ERP implementation and continued operations at Casper,” said Jason Costi, Senior Vice President of Finance, of Casper.
