Thor Saves One of The World's Largest Manufacturers Money on Process-Conversions and Integrations 

One of the world’s largest manufacturers of discrete semi-conductors and passive components was rapidly acquiring new business that needed to be converted and integrated into their typical business. The Systems Manager enlisted the Thor Group to help with the data conversion and integration projects from companies that they acquired.

The company was on an iSeries/AS400 platform using JD Edwards World. The data from the acquired companies was in a variety of formats including Oracle, Quantel and a number of other third party proprietary systems that needed to be converted and integrated into JDE World. The number of internal technical staff members was small, had limited resources and little knowledge of many of these different types of applications.

Using our in-depth consultative approach to identify business challenges and recommend matching business solutions, Thor provided our client an effective solution at a reduced rate for each conversion project. Thor offered experts in Oracle, Quantel or other respective applications and a Project Leader. The pay rate for these expert services varied, but on the average, the Thor rate was $60 an hour less than the rate for a System Integrator provided by JDE partners. Since a typical conversion and integration takes 8 month, using a Thor specialist, our client saved approximately $80,000 per project. In addition, with directive from internal staff, the experienced Thor contractor was often the technical lead providing further savings saving our client the need to hire another Project Manager.

This company regularly requests services of the same Thor contractors for new projects. Since these experts already know our client's business and processes, the learning curve is minimal, saving even more time and resources. Due to the success of our IT support provided on conversion projects, they have sought Thor services to provide professionals in a variety of other departments and positions including: Buying and Planning, Warehouse Management, Inventory Support, Customer Service and Administrative Support.
