Boston-area furniture retailer Jordan’s Furniture has chosen Unit4 Coda’s financial management package to augment its enterprise resource planning system.
Jordan’s will use the software to modernize its budgeting module.
“We have a great IT department that has been able to customize our ERP system over the years as we have grown,” said Steve Wholley , vice president of finance, Jordan’s Furniture. “But the financial module was no longer keeping up, and the temporary fixes had reached a point where they were expensive to maintain. While we initially thought we’d replace just the budgeting and planning module, it became clear through the RFP process that a best-of-class solution that co-exists well with our current system was the way to go.”
With five high-volume stores across Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island, Jordan’s management wanted to have real-time tracking and reporting capabilities across all locations, with the ability to drill down to a very granular level by multiple variables. The single ledger and flexible chart of accounts that Coda Financials offers will enable management to perform more accurate and detailed financial analysis than other solutions it examined.
“Ultimately, the budget and planning modules of Coda Financials, coupled with its ease of integration and deep functionality won the day,” said Wholley. “As an added bonus, the UNIT4 CODA team has been very easy to work with, and this bodes well for our partnership well into the future.”
“Jordan’s Furniture’s business is one of constant change, constant innovation, and customer-focus,” said Steve Pugh , CEO of Unit4 Coda. “Every decision and purchase it makes has to show clear benefits and add significant value in how it operates in the high pressure world of retail. Jordan’s has a clear vision of the future, and sees Coda Financials as a strategic system that will help it realize that vision.”
