1 White Paper Three Ways to Empower Real TM People with Kenandy Cloud ERP ERP for the Connected World

2

3 Three Ways to Empower Real People with Kenandy Cloud ERP Technology is powering disruptive business models in every industry sector. In fact, 86% of US CEOs and 81% of global CEOs say that technology advances will transform their businesses over the next 5 years. 1 At the same time, CEOs are also concerned about the speed of technology, with 67% concerned that their IT function will not be able to make the changes necessary to capitalize on technology megatrends. 2 The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new. Socrates Cloud, mobile, social and global real-time visibility these are the technologies that you need in your business processes to stay relevant today. But, most of all, you need to be able to adapt to the next change, because change is happening at an ever faster rate. That s why we created the Kenandy Cloud ERP Platform. We use new technology as an opportunity to rethink ERP, to design from a clean sheet of paper. The result is a totally different type of solution that adapts to your business today, rather than your business adapting to the system, and it can keep pace with the changes that tomorrow will bring. Kenandy allows you to continuously tune your business to take advantage of opportunities and improve results. Say goodbye to manual work-arounds. Now, when your business process changes, you can change your system. Personalize the user experience. Create dashboards on the fly. Add new fields, logic or workflows. Need to move fast on an acquisition or open operations in a new region to capture demand? No problem. With Kenandy Cloud ERP, you can on-board new areas of the business very quickly. Don t worry about getting stuck on old, out-of-date releases. Your customizations are preserved during updates that deliver new technologies and capabilities, so you can keep up with technology change too. On-premise legacy ERP is quickly going the way of floppy discs and cassette tapes. Today, you need a need an ERP platform that works they way you want it to in three ways: Easy to use Easy to implement Easy to change 3

4 Empower Users With ERP That s Easy To Use It s rare for organizations to use 100% of the functionality of their legacy ERP software, especially without consistent and customized training. Traditionally, ERP was designed for a small group of back office power users. Today, many ERP transactions can be automated. So, the real value of ERP comes when you can empower users your employees, partners and customers to work together to identify trends, resolve issues and make daily decisions. Kenandy makes it very easy to communicate. If there are any changes that need to be done, for example on a purchase order, we can address it right there and then. Karmen Aghajanian, Purchasing Manager, Natural Balance Pet Foods, an acquisition of Big Heart Pet Brands (previously known as Del Monte Foods) Advances in technology make it easy for consumers to search for the right products, buy anything at any time and resolve issues online. Under the covers of consumer experiences, sophisticated processes power that simplicity. Imagine if you could apply that same simplicity and power to your enterprise applications and processes? What if everyone in your company and network your customers, partners and suppliers could access the right information, get to the right expert and easily transact business? How would that increase your productivity? Your customer satisfaction? Designed for the next generation of mobile and social users, Kenandy provides a user experience that requires little or no training. It delivers just the right information and capabilities that every user needs for the task at hand. If you need help, the online Kenandy Community provides solutions, ideas and resources contributed by Kenandy and customers. Kenandy puts the power of ERP into the hands of everyone in your company who needs to collaborate, make decisions and perform everyday tasks that keep your business running smoothly. If you re a mobile user, the responsive design allows you to access what you need from anywhere, on any device. Personalize your experience to fit the way you work. Design new mobile experiences for your customers or partners. If you re a heads-down user, Kenandy is designed to minimize clicks, tabs and expedite searching. Features like grid-design and type-ahead search limit the friction that impedes getting the job done. Social collaboration connects people, business transactions and information. For example, if there is an issue fulfilling a shipment, the stock floor manager can initiate a discussion with the sales department. The conversation is connected to the order, so that everyone can see the items in question and the discussion is preserved with that order as it moves through the process, so if someone else has to pick up the work at a later date, there is a record of the previous decisions. Resolve issues more quickly, in the context of work. Keep an audit trail of resolutions. Find experts and bring teams together to move projects forward. 4

5 One of the most remarkable things about Kenandy is that it lets us really see what s going on in our business. We ve never had access to information of this breadth and depth before. It s really extraordinary, and it s making an enormous difference. Charlie Merrow, CEO, Merrow Sewing Machines Deliver the right user experience for everyone The ease of use is a great benefit for companies that are looking to expand operations quickly in new geographies, and the ability to display the system in local languages helps with rapid user adoption. For Blue Clover Devices, an award-winning original design manufacturer (ODM) with operations in the US and China, Kenandy s global capabilities were a key benefit over their previous patchwork of systems. Our prior ERP system only let us use one language, says Blue Clover Devices President and Co-founder Pete Staples. Kenandy s global capabilities are a real benefit for us because everyone can use the system in his or her own language. Now we re all on the same page, but in the language each of us fully understands. Perhaps the most transformative benefit is the real-time global visibility that Kenandy provides. The single data model and intuitive reporting tools allow anyone, with proper security access, to gain the real-time insight needed to make better decisions. Global visibility to a single source of truth from anywhere, on any device, is now a reality. Planet Green is the world leader of wholesale, high-quality remanufactured inkjet cartridges, and as Czarina Constantino-Louise, COO of Planet Green, puts it, With Kenandy, we now have one system that gives us complete visibility from order to cash. How much faster could you grow your business if you could see it happening and make adjustments in real-time? 5

6 Empower Your Business With ERP That s Easy To Implement Whether you re moving your operations closer to customer demand, pushing into new geographies, acquiring new product lines or innovating new business models, you need to move quickly. Traditional ERP is just too costly and slow to roll-out. Imagine how much faster you could realize benefits from your investments if you could on-board new areas of the business in days? You can implement in phases start with a new business, acquisition or geography. You can continue to deploy others areas of the business and retire costly point solutions at your own pace using Kenandy s agile implementation method. Big Heart Pet Brands (previously known as Del Monte Foods) goes Implement Agile Proof-of-Concept Sprints Deploy Deploy live with new acquisition 90 minutes after close. Script Design Build Test Script Design Build Test Script Design Build Test See progress along the way, avoid surprises Indeed, this is what Big Heart Pet Brands (previously known as Del Monte Foods) decided to do when they selected Kenandy as their operational system of choice and started the implementation with the acquisition of Natural Balance Pet Foods. Kenandy made a commitment to Big Heart Pet Brands to go live with the Natural Balance acquisition just 90 minutes after close. Stuart Kowarsky, VP of Operations at Natural Balance Pet Foods, says, This is probably the fifth or sixth ERP implementation of my career, and it was the smoothest transition I ve ever experienced. Not only did Kenandy accelerate our integration with Del Monte in a number of areas including customer service, logistics, and the entire supply chain network we were able to see these synergies immediately. If you want to standardize your operations in different subsidiaries or geographies, you can templatize your implementations. The flexibility of the Kenandy Cloud ERP Platform allows you to maintain central control while complying with local regulations, fostering local innovation and meeting different sub-industry needs. Moving to the cloud is an opportunity for you to leverage new technologies, like social and mobile, to improve your business processes. You don t have to make all the changes up front. With the Kenandy Cloud ERP Platform, you can continue to improve your processes iteratively. Make changes to the business processes with clicks, not code. The flexible design lets you continuously innovate, something many businesses need to do today to stay relevant. 6

7 Empower IT With ERP That s Easy To Change Legacy ERP systems were not designed to be flexible, they were designed to automate repeatable business processes. Today, the pace of change has accelerated. Rapid adaptability and uptake of current technology is critical. According to Mint Jutras, managing change has traditionally been an obstacle to achieving the goals of an ERP solution. The 2014 ERP Solution Study found this to be the number one challenge with the vast majority (82%) rating it as moderately to extremely challenging. 3 The fact that between 66-75% of the companies require customizations to adapt ERP to meet their needs 4 complicates the situation, because legacy ERP that has been heavily customized is challenging to upgrade without losing or re-coding customizations. The Kenandy system is like Legos whereas the traditional ERP systems are more like a stack of lumber and blueprints. It s fundamentally easier to put things together and make them work. That s why Kenandy Cloud ERP was designed with a fundamentally different architecture. Unlike legacy ERP, or cloud ERP solutions that simply replicate legacy ERP architecture, Kenandy is designed from a clean sheet of paper to take advantage of the massive scalability elastic computing power of the cloud. Built natively on the Salesforce Platform, the #1 PaaS, Kenandy has a unified data model called Wide-Body Objects. This simple architectural difference, between Kenandy and legacy ERP, is the key to the flexibility that allows business to keep up with rapid market change. Kenandy Cloud ERP Peter Staples, President and Co-Founder, Blue Clover Devices Customers Distributors Employees Suppliers Contract Manufacturers Mobile Social Real-Time Reporting TRADE PROMOTION MANAGEMENT ORDER-TO-CASH PROCURE-TO-PAY PLANNING & PRODUCTION GLOBAL FINANCIALS Single Wide-Body Object TM Data Model Global Workflow In-memory Configurable Multitenant Protected Updates Integration APIs Scalable Secure 7

8 Here s why: Legacy ERP system design was limited by the cost and availability of memory and storage, so they had to be designed as modules supported by many tables. At the time they were first designed, this architecture served companies well by helping them automate repetitive, routine processes. However, as the systems grew, the table volume and complexity exploded into tens of thousands of tables connected to hundreds of modules and strung together with exponential integration points. Today, legacy ERP has become so complicated and unwieldy that making changes to the everyday processes you depend upon requires deep pockets for costly experts and generous timelines. The problem is, competition is global and faster today. Companies can t remain competitive with legacy ERP systems that are slow and expensive to respond to market changes and opportunities. One of the many reasons Del Monte selected Kenandy was that we wanted a flexible system that easily adapts to business changes, such as new acquisitions, while also offering enterprise-class capabilities. Legacy ERP Proliferation of Tables VARIANTS: add tables LIFECYCLE: add copies Dave McLain, SVP, CIO, & Procurement Officer, Big Heart Pet Brands (previously known as Del Monte Foods) ACCESS: many slow, complex joins Today, memory and storage in the cloud are elastic resources that are accessible on-demand, which means there s a better way to design to take full advantage of this new reality. Instead of traditional tables, Kenandy uses Wide-Body Objects architecture to do just that. Wherever possible, Kenandy uses fewer objects to serve more purposes. Through additional fields, Wide-Body Objects can express object variants and the full lifecycle of objects. For example, invoice, credit memo and adjustments are variants of a single object. Similarly, single objects are used to express the lifecycle of an object, such as a product being planned, built and finished. Fewer objects simplifies the data model, so it s easier to understand, customize and access for reporting. 8

9 Wide-Body Objects also provides faster access to information, because each object contains information about its relationship to other objects. So, when you need to access information across objects, a pulled object automatically brings the information from all its related objects. This enables faster, more real-time access for processing and reporting. Kenandy Wide-Body Objects TM Architecture VARIANTS Variants of the object are identified by fields, rather than more tables Kenandy offers a much better and more customized solution for a fraction of the cost of old-timers like SAP or Oracle. And unlike those older-school systems, Kenandy is continually being updated so it can grow right along with our business. ACCESS Fast lookups between objects with List of Values in an object Invoice Product Shipment LIFECYCLE States of the object lifecycle are identified by fields, rather than more tables Tony Rowley, President, 3Sigma Corporation Since Kenandy Wide-Body Objects packs in so much more information than legacy tables, and the system is built with dramatically fewer objects, complex business processes can be configured quickly. Enter a world of continuous innovation. Innovation Kenandy delivers to you with frequent updates. Innovations you drive in your business processes, because with Kenandy you can make changes anytime. You can modify business processes, user experience and dashboards with clicks, not code. Add fields, change workflows, develop new mobile experiences, and bring new businesses online very quickly. Need to add your own applications? No problem, you can build any extensions you need. But, before you do, check the Salesforce AppExchange. With thousands of applications available to instantly add to your product, there may be a solution out there that will meet your needs. Here s the best part: your changes, custom applications and AppExchange purchases are preserved during upgrades, so you can stay up-to-date without disrupting your business. You re never stuck on an old release. Now you can stay ahead of the competition and seize opportunities with an ERP system that supports you every step of the way. 9
