PO Approval for Plano Synergy

Plano Synergy – the iconic US sports good manufacturer –  has embraced the power and simplicity of Swift platform to launch mobile apps integrated seamlessly with their JD Edwards ERP and other systems including Salesforce and Magento. 

For more than a half century, Plano Synergy brands and products inspire people to engage in outdoor pursuits throughout the world. Plano Synergy is one of the US leading manufactures of products for hunters, anglers, and outdoorsmen. It is one of the leading manufacturers of fishing tackle boxes, archery equipment, game cameras, protective cases, and other outdoor sporting products.

Problem

After the sun-set of JD Edwards mobile apps, Plano needed a robust solution for their enterprise mobility starting with Purchase Order Approvals. Swift Purchase Order Approval app now allows their Accounts Payable executives to review the POs pending approval, approve or reject them while on the go using their iPhone, iPad and Android phones and tablets.

Plano migrated to JD Edwards 9.2 in 2019 and since then has been looking to best utilize the latest tools including AIS and Orchestrator. Swift has allowed Plano Synergy make the best use of their latest Tools Release where Swift apps connect with AIS at a meta-data level providing game-changing capabilities to their Business Analysts to create and maintain mobile and tablet apps without a single line of code.

Plano Synergy has since started to expand the Swift implementation enterprise-wide across multiple functions.

“We feel that Swift is a God-sent and a game-changer for us. The ability for our BAs and even power users to create apps across mobile and web integrated with our ERP within a couple of days, that otherwise took months for a whole dev team, is amazingly empowering. It was hard to believe at first!”
