Infor, provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, has announced that Awal Gulf, a leading refrigeration and air conditioning equipment manufacturer producing 450,000 units annually in the Kingdom of Bahrain, has successfully deployed Infor10 ERP Enterprise (LN). The new ERP application will help improve operational excellence in its three modern manufacturing plants in Sitra and Hidd, and across its supply chain.
Awal Gulf has now successfully migrated from Baan IVc4 to the Infor10 ERP Enterprise application. The decision to migrate was made because of ERP Enterprise's superior features in warehouse management, serialisation, purchase requisition, and call management.
ERP Enterprise now manages the entire financials, order management, warehouse and manufacturing aspects of Awal Gulf's cooling products. The new ERP application provides visibility across Awal Gulf's supply chain and will help in optimising production and faster deliveries as well as higher customer satisfaction.
ERP Enterprise helps ensure that production costs are controlled to the best extent possible along with better planning of production related activities across the company.
The user-friendliness of new ERP Enterprise application was a major factor in the decision to migrate. Furthermore being a web-based application users can gain access to the ERP from anywhere, helping to boost productivity.
"We selected Infor ERP Enterprise because of its advanced features which would significantly help our warehousing and service operations," said Krishna Kumar, GM Finance and IT, Awal Gulf. "We wanted an application that was highly reliable, easy to use and can boost the productivity of our multiple manufacturing operations," says Niteen Hulyalkar, IT Manager, Awal Gulf. "Infor ERP Enterprise will gives us control over every aspect of our manufacturing supply chain, from design through to delivery, and after-market service business."

"Its advanced features enable customers to be in control of their entire supply chain. This deployment at Awal Gulf is a major teamwork achievement for Infor and its partners in the Middle East.
