Orora North America Streamlines its Order-to-Cash Process with Integrated, Secure Credit Card Processing for JD Edwards

Orora North America addresses a complex and labor-intensive work-process of handling credit card payments, including Level 3 Processing, to supply detailed data of card charges to customers - while meeting PCI compliance standards.


The Kent H. Landsberg Company is part of Orora Ltd., one of the world’s largest packaging companies, with revenues exceeding $8 billion USD and over 217 plants in 34 countries.  Kent H. Landsberg is a global distribution company, headquartered in Southern California selling an assortment of paper, packaging materials, shipping supplies, and janitorial products, as well as stock and custom corrugated.


Following a thorough evaluation of several credit card processing providers for JD Edwards, Kent H. Landsberg selected Premier's SmarterCommerce Credit Card Processing, Address/Card Security Code Validation, and Level 2/3 Processing solutions because of:

  • Improved efficiency of credit card processing
  • Overall value proposition of the solution
  • Fixed fee/ fixed scope proposal
  • Speed of implementation
  • Strong customer references
  • Depth of Premier’s expertise with credit card processing and JD Edwards
  • Degree of fit with its requirements 


The Kent H. Landsberg Company implemented SmarterCommerce to support its five divisions that are “live” with JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 8.10 and will be expanding the implementation to an additional 30 divisions over the next two years. 

The SmarterCommerce installation, prototyping, and project team training was completed in only 5 days, and the software was successfully integrated to JD Edwards 45 days later, consistent with the desired implementation schedule.


The Kent H. Landsberg Company has found Premier to be a very capable partner in its effort to streamline credit card processing.  

“SmarterCommerce Credit Card has delivered increased productivity across the order-to-cash process, thus providing significant benefits for our divisions as they migrate from their legacy ERP system to the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne solution.  With Premier Group, we have a partner we can count on to address our credit card needs and deliver fast, high quality service and support,” indicated Ms. Cheryl Pierce.
