Infor, provider of business application software serving more than 73,000 customers, has announced that Prisym ID, an innovator in the design and delivery of turn-key labelling solutions that enable complete product auto-identification and lifecycle traceability, has selected Infor SyteLine for 20 users throughout the UK and US. Infor SyteLine will replace a combination of Excel spreadsheets and Sage Line 500.
As Prisym ID expands its business beyond traditional medical devices into pharmaceutical labelling, Infor SyteLine will help drive growth by delivering a single, consistent view into the financial data within Prisym instead of a series of separate siloes of information. In addition, Infor SyteLine is expected to help improve data accuracy as well as automating invoice processes, eliminating duplicated effort.
Faced with a lack of ongoing support and the limited functionality of the legacy software Prisym ID began a thorough review of the ERP marketplace. Infor SyteLine was chosen on the basis of its functionality and ability to deliver clear, consistent information throughout the business, backed by the deep domain expertise in the life science and manufacturing sectors, of Infor partner Inforlogic.
Barry Cooper, financial director, Prisym ID explains: "The first thing that struck us about Infor and InforLogic was that they listened throughout the selection process. As we look to make substantial changes to our organisation in order to drive growth and improve commercial controls, their ability to listen and deliver solutions based on those conversations, gives us a lot of confidence. Infor SyteLine is clearly well aligned to our projects and we anticipate early efficiencies as well as longer term capabilities to help enable the development of the company."
"Growth for specialist manufacturers can come from unexpected corners," said Phil Lewis, senior director, solution consulting, EMEA, Infor. "In the case of Prisym ID, the development of their own bespoke labelling software as well as new geographical markets means that the applications that underpin the business processes must be flexible and scalable but still deliver short term ROI. In these situations, the built-in functionality of Infor SyteLine, based on years of experience in manufacturing, alongside the flexibility of the loosely coupled architecture means that the application can deliver both short term gains and a long term platform for growth."
Paula Yarwood, business development, Inforlogic added: "The deployment of leading applications like SyteLine into specialist businesses such as Prisym ID is based on deep domain expertise; not only in the application itself but also the deployment methodology. It is this experience that enables us to deliver applications that change the way work is done."
