CENTA chose Infor ERP LN because it is a fully integrated solution which deftly handles order taking, order tracking, contracts, pricing and scheduling. It streamlines the order management process by allowing CENTA to customise order entry procedures for different items or customers. Additionally, Infor ERP LN offers the international scalability that CENTA needs to keep up with its tremendous growth, satisfying the requirements of its customers across the world.

In searching for a new ERP system with comprehensive order management, multi-site and multi-currency capabilities, CENTA authorised Trovarit, a vendor-neutral analyst firm focused on consulting services in the field of enterprise software solutions, to conduct market research and pre-evaluate ERP vendors that met its specifications. Infor demonstrated the business-specific functionality and manufacturing experience built-in to Infor ERP LN, leading to the best evaluation marks of all vendors joining the assessment.

With Infor ERP LN, CENTA plans to integrate all its subsidiaries worldwide to consolidate different and disparate data sources. This plan reduces duplication of work and potential errors and ensures consistency of data. With Infor ERP LN, CENTA is well prepared to improve its competitiveness, leverage its technology investment for further business growth and reduce its total cost of ownership.

Infors solution combines a broad range of business-specific key functionalities with an outstanding and improved user experience, which will support our projected growth targets locally and globally, says Bernd Kirschey, managing partner at CENTA. According to our expansion plans, it is also very crucial that Infor ERP LN easily integrates with a broad set of other solutions from Infor, such as Infor SCM Planner, to optimise our processes within the entire supply chain.

CENTA, the expert of reliable drive applications, previously relied on a strongly customised solution that did not support its expansion from a local to a worldwide operating manufacturer. Once the implementation of the new system is completed, CENTA will profit from a single view of all business-critical processes, consolidating duplicate spreadsheets and databases and eliminating manual input errors through data integration.

With Infor ERP LN, CENTA has all the tools they need to compete wherever they are, successfully managing the challenges of a globally operating manufacturer, says Hermann Stehlik, Vice President Marketing EMEA, Infor. The solutions modular architecture and global, multi-site capabilities enable Infor ERP LN to scale to meet their business needs for the long term.
