The Challenge

“Epilogue gets a 10 out of 10 for ease of deployment, and we distribute that self-help content across the company intranet. All in all, a great product; we love it.”

The company was moving all of their business operations from legacy IT systems to one main Application, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne (JDE E1). This would initially include documenting all processes in JDE E1 in English and French for over 100 warehouses in North America. The additional requirements for the education learning platform included user friendly content creation, content distribution and consumption.
