Infor, provider of business applications specialised by industry and built for the cloud, has announced that cable management manufacturer, HellermannTyton, has invested in Infor CloudSuite Distribution Enterprise.
The application, which is built on Infor M3, will ensure the company has a robust, future-proof technology platform from which to grow its business as well as helping to ensure compliance with Sarbanes Oxley (SOX). The deployment is expected to be live in April 2017.
HellermannTyton selected Infor CloudSuite Distribution Enterprise to replace an outdated platform. As well as scalability, and the ability to future-proof the manufacturing specialist's technology infrastructure, the application will also enhance availability, improve users' experience and internal processes via Infor Ming.le™, speed up reporting and facilitate improved business intelligence (BI). With its parent company, Delphi Automotive, listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), SOX compliance to support corporate and financial governance was also a crucial factor in selecting the Infor application.
"We have used Infor applications for many years, and they have supported us extremely well in growing our business both organically and through a number of acquisitions," comments Thor Kohler, Operations Manager, Nordics, HellermannTyton. "As we embrace the next phase of our journey, we need a cloud technology platform which offers high scalability and availability, as well as seamless processes to maximize our productivity, enhance our BI to hone service and strategy, and drive profitability in the face of challenging markets. Infor CloudSuite Distribution Enterprise delivers everything we need, via the cloud to really future-proof and consolidate out IT footprint going forward."
"Driving innovation in the face of continuous change isn't easy. But with a robust, cloud-based platform to manage the high volumes of transactions associated with this kind of business, as well as suppliers, customers, inventory and analytics, competitive advantage is a great deal easier to carve out," comments Phil Lewis, European VP of Solutions Consulting, Infor. "Infor recognizes that no business is the same, and our industry specific functionality combined with superior reporting and compliance, in this case with SOX, put our customers in the best position from which to embrace new opportunities."
