Here’s what some of our customers have to say…

“As the Sr. Manager of Global Operational systems, Circular Edge is my 'Secret Weapon' for Application Integration, Application Development, and Application Security.

Circular Edge always presents top notch resources that blend with my internal resources to accomplish our corporate goals and initiatives. The Smart Help Program allows me to expand and contract resources to deliver on promises to the business on urgent requests, daily production support, and collaborating with my team to bring out the best solutions.”
Vincent Kelly, Sr. Manager Operational Systems, Phibro Animal Health
“Our challenge was support across multiple time zones and 17 countries backed up by a single team. Circular Edge Smart Help was a perfect fit for our IT landscape spanning 15 different skill sets.
Bill Ott, Corporate IT Director, Smithers Oasis
“Our initiative to implement JD Edwards across all our International Business Units required us to partner with a company that had a wide global footprint and the expertise in International rollouts. We spent a long time vetting many companies and Circular Edge rose to the top. They not only provided the necessary expertise in International roll outs but also provided the expertise in localization requirements for each of our business units. We also needed a partner that could provide post go live support for our business units and Circular Edge has worked with us to put a support plan in place to support our business units after go live.
David M. Kramer, Sr. Director IS, LATICRETE International
“The Circular Edge owners and seemingly every resource, albeit working in-house at our company or offshore, demonstrate a passion and drive as if they are a part of my company. They were an integral part in migrating our company from an outdated ERP system to JDE E1. Since that launch of 5.5 years ago, their Smart Help division has, and continues to aid us in configuring new processes, modifying and developing new software and trouble-shooting issues as needed."
Harry Morris, JDE E1 Order to Delivery Support, Innophos
