Adexa Shortens Time to ROI and Lowers TCO
New UI configuration tool delivers performance and financial returns
Los Angeles, CA. (Jan. 11, 2005) – Adexa, Inc., a leading provider of integrated supply chain and performance management solutions, today announced the release of Vista™, a new Graphical User Interface (GUI) service for supply chain and complex business applications. Vista lowers the total cost of ownership (TCO) of these applications and delivers faster return on investment (ROI) by making them more user-friendly. With Vista, individuals can easily configure the views of information to best-suit their roles and business processes. In so doing, users increase their individual speed and efficiency and the enterprise gets greater performance benefits from its complex applications.
“ROI projections are based on the assumption that, once implemented, technology applications will be utilized, but that is not always the case,” said Cyrus Hadavi, Adexa’s president and chief executive officer. “Complex user interfaces can delay adoption which leads to missed performance and financial targets. No amount of SEC ordered financial compensation from technology vendors can make up for the damage to your reputation caused by missed promise dates and earnings targets. Vista shortens the lag-time between deployment and adoption by enabling users to adapt an application’s UI to the way THEY do their jobs, rather than forcing them to learn new techniques and business processes. This leads to immediate operational performance improvements, faster ROI and lower TCO. The aggregate value of the Vista service is its impact on profitability and earnings.”
Typically, custom configuration of rich technology applications is impractical because outside system integrators, consultants or IT professionals need to be contracted for expensive service engagements. With Vista, no programming expertise is required to modify the user interface. A graphical workbench tool is used to change XML configuration files and create customized, role-specific views of information with tables, charts, graphs, OLAP cubes and forms. There is no tradeoff between application functionality and ease of use.
Vista simplifies the use of Adexa’s industry acclaimed solutions for flexibly modeling and planning an enterprise supply chain. Adexa offers flexible data modeling, configurable business logic and now, with Vista, an adaptive UI. And Vista works with all J2EE based systems that support 1.4 and above, not just Adexa solutions, including IBM-Websphere, BEA-Weblogic, SAP NetWeaver and open source products.
