OpenEdge customers are changing the world with their innovation and ability to lead the way.
From solving hunger to keeping the lights on, OpenEdge customers, who we like to call our “Pathfinders”, inspire us to keep innovating and creating products that will improve their businesses and the lives of their customers in a variety of ways.
We wanted to highlight some of our key Pathfinders, including Meals on Wheels, State Electric Supply Co., and Lexis Nexis, to showcase how they are making a difference.
Families can now get quality food faster. Meals on Wheels operates a daily home-delivered meals program for thousands of older adults, generally aged 60 and older, who are homebound and food insecure. To help serve the needs of the community, Meals on Wheels struggled to manage the supply chain from the kitchen to inventory rooms, on top of the meal deliveries themselves. Using OpenEdge, Meals on Wheels increased the number of MyOffice Apps and Progress users by 240%, helping it reach its goal of delivering 30,000 meals in a single day. Thanks to Progress OpenEdge-powered ERP by MyOffice Apps, Meals on Wheels can deliver on its promise of making the world a better place.
Digital experiences and electrical distributors go hand in hand. State Electric Supply Co. is one of the nation's largest and best-known electrical distributors. To continue to deliver a full range of quality products to partners and customers, State Electric realized its own B2B commerce experience needed to evolve. State Electric's business has been run on Infor SX.e, a Progress OpenEdge-based ERP that automates its backend ecommerce activities, for the past 20 years. Alongside this, the organization required a platform to deliver the new ecommerce experience's front-end. State Electric began developing a new, B2C-inspired ecommerce experience using Progress Sitefinity in collaboration with Progress. From a basic, internally designed website to an award-winning, multi-channel offering that generates interaction, the eCommerce experience has evolved. State Electric Supply Co. can now better serve its consumers thanks to OpenEdge and Sitefinity's innovative and acclaimed backend eCommerce experience.
The workforce is strengthened by real-time resource allocation optimization. LexisNexis is one of the world's leading providers of information to professional services, specializing in legal and business research as well as risk management services. LexisNexis clients needed real-time reporting capabilities, but the overnight ETL solution for updating the database didn't support that. OpenEdge Pro2 enables businesses to access critical data without straining their production database. With new reporting capabilities and accurate data, LexisNexis clients can better serve customers and provide more value.
