Infor, one of the largest global providers of enterprise software, has released that Endoline Machinery, a UK manufacturer of end-of-line packaging machinery, has selected Infor ERP Visual, a comprehensive enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution for discrete manufacturers, to provide real-time data for increased visibility into its business operations.
Endoline Machinery’s products, which it supplies to companies such as major food producers, enable finished goods to be automatically packed into boxes. Endoline exports its machines around the world despite stiff competition from overseas manufacturers.
Endoline needed a solution, which would provide its board of directors with accurate real time financial and operational information. Up until now, systems were based on bespoke databases and could not present a quick and accurate view of operations across the business.
Visual will provide Endoline Machinery with extended capabilities by providing full integration of information across departments and in particular its stock control and financial systems. Visual also offers planning, purchasing and scheduling functions that will enable the company to gain greater control over its inventory, increasing stock turns and reducing wastage, allowing it to allocate resources more efficiently and give it the ability to track orders and operations.
According to Endoline Machinery, it had an in-house solution, which could not support its business. Endoline needed to expand, and having a system in place to support its business is crucial. It was obvious that the Visual solution would enable Endoline to move into the next age and provide us with the rich functionality to support its expanding operations.
It is critical that Endoline has a system in place, which will enable it to track all of its operations. If they are to break into new markets, the management team requires visibility of stock levels, orders and financing. The Visual solution will streamline its operations and provide the board with up-to-date information in order to help us achieve this goal.
According to Infor, Endoline Machinery selected Infor for its expertise in providing solutions, which extend the capabilities of manufacturers. In Visual, Endoline Machinery recognised a superior solution, which will support its diversifying business needs. Infor already have over 3500 customers using its Visual solution around the world. Many of them are like Endoline in that they demand a manufacturing–centric solution, dedicated to the application of lean thinking to promote efficiency across ever expanding global operations.
Infor ERP Visual, a feature-rich solution with an easy-to-use graphic user interface, provides manufacturers an extensive integrated solution to source, plan, make and deliver. A manufacturing-centric solution, Visual is designed to give small to medium enterprises powerful management capabilities through the built in workflow system, allowing them to build the controls they need for their business. Thousands of manufacturers depend on Infor ERP Visual to gain valuable insight into their supply chain, improve compliance management and successfully support lean initiatives.
