Supplier Relationship Management solution extends the value of customers existing Infor ERP Deployment
Infor has announced that Hailo GmbH & Co. KG, a leading manufacturer of laundry systems, ladders/steps and sanitation supplies for industrial and residential use will expand its relationship with Infor through the deployment of Infor SRM SupplyWEB. SupplyWEB will integrate with Hailos existing Infor ERP solution to facilitate data sharing between the two systems, helping Hailo to streamline supplier interaction and enhance its sourcing process.
SupplyWEB will enable Hailo to optimize its entire replenishment process by automating time-consuming steps such as price comparison, contract development and data analysis. Availability of supplies can be checked immediately, allowing the company to make real-time decisions regarding alternative goods or suppliers to compensate for last minute supply shortages and ensuring the company has precise control of its manufacturing inventory. Through this combination of benefits, Halio can lower manufacturing costs and help its customers receive the products they need, when they need them.
We required a real-time supplier relationship solution to immediately react to potential supply shortages, as our business units depend on accurate, up-to-date replenishment data to meet shipping dates, said Fred Michalzik, IT Director at Hailo. With SupplyWEB, we can improve our supplier relationships, resulting in both time and cost savings. We will also gain universal supplier transparency with SupplyWEB, delivering accurate information on inventory levels and actual demand.
As Hailo has many years of experience with web-based supplier interaction, the company will deploy Infor SRM SupplyWEB as the central information hub for future inbound and outbound supplier requests.
With Infor SRM SupplyWEB, Hailo will benefit from a flexible, lean supply chain, enabling them to increase productivity and cash flow, and improve efficiency and quality, states Hermann Stehlik, VP Marketing EMEA at Infor. Infor SRM SupplyWEB also integrates easily with Hailos existing Infor ERP solution, demonstrating our commitment to help our customers extend the value of their existing enterprise software investments.
