Whether you are rolling out existing software to additional facilities or implementing a new system, timing and costs can mean everything. Open Sky Group's methodology of disciplined agility and no modifications approach reduces your risk, saves you money, and streamlines your future upgrade path.

If you have a Blue Yonder (formerly JDA RedPrairie) warehouse or labor management solution and you think it’s time for an upgrade, Open Sky Group can help. We start by examining your current version – we call this a WMS Upgrade Assessment. When the Assessment is complete - you’ll have a blueprint outlining the costs, effort, and benefits of upgrading.

Managed Services include support, infrastructure, and development services. Open Sky Group specialists work to ensure you’re getting optimal system performance and productivity from your installed warehouse, labor, and transportation management software.

Open Sky Group’s Advisory Services focuses on meeting the challenges you face today while also helping you prepare for operational success tomorrow. Our recommendations match your goals to what is feasible, workable, and successful for your operations.

Open Sky Group’s Hosting Services help companies achieve the same results as if they had a large, dedicated IT staff, just more affordably. Not only does Open Sky Group have Blue Yonder-specific knowledge of best practices for deploying, tuning, and maintaining your solution, hosting comes with the full support of Managed Services (see the managed services section to learn more).

Open Sky Group consultants are experts at translating information either into or out of the systems we implement, to all kinds of packages whether they are homegrown, or well-known. Open Sky Group consultants use integration tools to successfully share information between Blue Yonder solutions including, warehouse, labor, and transportation management to any of your other systems that need it.

Mounting service levels mean non-stop changes in staffing levels, inventory positioning, equipment, and travel distances. Open Sky Group can help you implement Blue Yonder Luminate Warehouse Tasking, which pulls data from many sources and uses that intelligence to prioritize/re-prioritize tasks in your warehouse.
