Camden Property Trust decided to consolidate and modernize its business processes in order to keep pace with its dynamic growth. Camden selected the JD Edwards enterprise resource planning (ERP) application for its core financial operations. Camden chose RSA Corp for its technical implementation team. The selection of RSA Corp was based on our responsiveness and ability to create and deliver services tailored to Camden’s requirements.
We provided the technical team responsible for project management, software installation and configuration, data conversion, data migration and integration, reporting capabilities, security implementation and technical documentation. Throughout the project, Camden was accountable to stringent auditing to ensure compliance with all local and federal regulations including Sarbanes-Oxley. We submitted documented processes of all work, especially the data conversion that provided the evidence for the project auditors.
We worked together with Camden’s project team, functional project team and business users. We exceeded Camden’s expectations, going beyond the delivery of expected technical services by:
“RSA Corp brought together a team with excellent JD Edwards expertise and solid technology experience,” says Melinda Culver, director of Business Solutions at Camden. “Their consultants worked well with Camden’s technical and business teams, as well as the project’s functional team, helping us to bring our project in on schedule.”
When Camden’s JD Edwards application went live from its Houston headquarters and 200 nationwide apartment locations, Camden gained a significant improvement in its business operations, timely access to business information, and a reduction in need for manual processes.
“Our goal, as the technical implementation team for Camden, was to provide a sustainable technology base for its financial business applications. Whenever the team determined that we could provide extra value or do more to ensure the JD Edward’s application project would be a success, we took that extra step,” said Joan Kriedle, RSA Corp technical team leader for the project.
Through the efforts of the project team and our consultants, Camden successfully migrated from a highly manual accounting system to a proactive, knowledge-based financial suite. Also, it transferred from using a client-server and DOS technology to a state-of-the-art, Web-based ERP system. As a company, Camden is poised for significant future growth and is confident it has a solid infrastructure in place to support continued success.
