Infor, provider of business application software with operations serving more than 75,000 customers, has announced that Geophysical Survey Systems, Inc. (GSSI), the ground penetrating radar and electromagnetic induction equipment provider, increased its on-time delivery performance level from 60 per cent to an average of 93 per cent with Infor ERP Visual's EasyLEAN module, which alters traditional planning methods to reduce inventory and smooth production flow. Better control over labour and materials, paired with greater data visibility, cut lead times by more than half, increasing customer satisfaction through punctual shipments and amplified throughput.
- GSSI increased on-time delivery performance from 60 per cent to an average of 93 per cent using ERP VISUAL's EasyLEAN module
- GSSI also cut lead times from four weeks to two weeks through improved inventory visibility, with orders now ready to ship up to 50 per cent faster than before.
- EasyLEAN enables better control over labour and materials, thereby reducing shortages on the manufacturing floor and increasing customer satisfaction through on-time deliveries.
- Both intuitive and easy-to-use, EasyLEAN facilitates the integration of information from sales, operations and manufacturing departments, permitting the reduction of inventory through easier, accurate data access for management.
- Infor channel partner Synergy Resources worked with GSSI to complete the EasyLEAN implementation on-budget, finishing with time to spare.
"Prior to EasyLEAN, we had too many material shortages and inefficiencies on the manufacturing floor," said Jack O'Leary, vice president, Operations, GSSI. "Now, we have much greater insight into inventory and labour needs, allowing us to increase revenue without increasing resources. EasyLean enables better service for our current customer base with quicker delivery and shorter lead times, positioning us to outpace our competition and gain market share. Punctual shipments lead to happy customers, which ultimately generates more revenue for our company."
"Infor ERP Visual is an intuitive solution that integrates functional areas such as sales, operations and manufacturing, facilitating collaboration between each division to dramatically reduce manufacturing lead times while boosting on-time delivery and fulfilment rates," said Mark Humphlett, director, ERP Solution Marketing, Infor. "ERP Visual brings order to your orders, so shipments stay on schedule from the shop floor to the customer's location."
