Peningo Systems Selected to Provide JDA Enterprise Planning Consulting and Professional Services

Peningo Systems  has recently been selected to provide resources with expertise in JDA Enterprise Planning Consulting to support our client’s implementation project with a major fashion designer retailer. To contact Peningo, click here or call (914) 921-3102.


Peningo Systems will be assisting with the implementation by providing expertise in the implementation, configuration and testing of the JDA Enterprise Planning (JDA EP) 8.x. Peningo Systems will be providing JDA Consultants at the Professional Service level.

While many of the Professional Service organizations look to optimize their profits by reducing the cost of labor, many times these organizations cut their resources with the expertise and seniority needed for successful implementations, in lieu of less experienced and cheaper resources. Though the cost of labor has decreased for the Professional Services, many times their rates increase to the client. Many of the end clients are not aware of this, and assume that going to a Software Vendor’s Professional Service organization will yield the best available resources for their project.

For these reasons above, the quality of services from these Professional Services Organizations has declined drastically. The founders of Peningo Systems have thrived for years in providing Consulting Services with the Senior Level Experts at rates that are below the rates of the Software Vendor’s Professional Services Organizations with their sub-par to mediocre talent.

We at Peningo Systems always insure that we provide the end client with the best available resources within their respective areas of expertise. This delivery of services is at rates that below the rates of the Software Vendor’s Professional Services organizations that utilize resources that that are not as experienced and seasoned as the Peningo Systems Consultant.

If you are an “End Client” looking for IT Consulting Service providers to support your Applications, Peningo Systems provides Consultants with expertise in many areas including:

About Edward Pellon

About Peningo Systems ( ) Peningo Systems and it founders have been involved in IT Consulting for over 30 years. Our goal is to support the individual IT Consultant by providing an avenue for them to be in contact directly to the end client. By doing this we reduce the many layers and tiers of organizations that are involved with placement of an IT Consultant. By reducing these layers and tiers, cost can be significantly reduced to the end client, while still providing the room for the Consultant to increase their revenues. Peningo is a for profit organization. We have decided to earn our “keep” by advocating, establishing and supporting a “market place” where the IT consultant and the “end client” may function without the interference of tiers of “prestigious” companies that bring to the consulting assignment excessive Markups and very little else. At Peningo we feel that the IT Consultant should be paid adequate rates commensurate with their skills and the personal sacrifice inherent in the life of an IT consultant. These allows us to field capable, motivated consultants that will contribute successfully to the “end client’s” systems development and implementation, while attracting to the IT industry new talent that otherwise would go to more lucrative pursuits. With the elimination of the “prestigious ones” there will be costs savings that will allow for the consultant to be paid a higher rate and for the client to reduce its costs. Both objectives represents Peningo’s Mission.
