Oracle’s JD Edwards
Frontdoor Ended Spreadsheet Chaos and Achieved True Business Growth With EASYProcess
Their family of brands includes American Home Shield (the home warranty plan industry founder and leader), HSA, Landmark, and OneGuard. They serve more than two million customers across the U.S. through a network of approximately 17,000 pre-qualified contractors.

The Need for the Right Financial Foundation

Integration With The K-Rise Systems Community Edition
Frontdoor adapted the K-Rise Systems Community Edition when they wanted to integrate their JD instance into the platform.

The Community Edition comes with full access to K-Rise Systems training and support so that Frontdoor could get up-to-speed quickly & easily and they could start building applications immediately without worrying about upfront costs.
