Saks Incorporated – Jackson, MS – Corporate IT 4/7 – 5/8

Manager, Systems Support, Corporate IT 

Managed system support for the relocation of reporting servers housing online and flash reports for Saks’ distribution centers. Integrated new .net technology into old mainframe based systems; provided oversight of an entirely new asp based, received not ordered (RNO system); and migrated all existing logistics reports into a new server.

  • Spearheaded the development of an intradepartmental IT team to cross train on .net, asp, and VB technologies.  Developed training programs and led cross-functional training sessions, resulting in increased reporting efficiencies and real-time data collection/reporting for older technologies.
  • Reduced the cost of software upgrades and vendor purchases by negotiating more favorable pricing with existing and potential vendors.  Successfully reduced the price of a software upgrade from more than $1 million to less than $600 thousand.

Assisted in the development of new in-house RNO platform to automate operations and reduce misdirected merchandise between distribution centers.  Significantly reduced the annual cost of misdirected merchandise.
