All of this was done with minimal disruption to Order-to-Cash users, which was critical given that many Teknion partners and furniture dealers relied on these apps for their business.
“The end user was our main focus,” Gowe said. “They did not ask for an upgrade, but we wanted to provide them with new opportunities. Change management has to be zero so they can keep doing what they were doing.”
The combination of OpenEdge 12.0, PAS for OpenEdge, MDBA and Kendo UI made it possible, setting up Teknion to thrive in the new cloud-centric world without disrupting users.
“People tell me, ‘I don’t know what you did, but the application moves fast,’” Gowe said. “This is great, because it shows me that the app not only does what it needs to do, people are actually eager to use it.”
Teknion’s designs work across boundaries. Within any architectural envelope and work culture—products that work wherever you work.
