Leading automotive supplier BOSAL is standardizing 34 plants and 18 distribution centers onto a single ERP system—Infor LN Automotive.
They’re calling it the BOSAL Global Operating Model, and it’s going to help improve business processes, efficiency and transparency.
BOSAL is headquartered in Lummen, Belgium. Its 5,500+ employees support major car manufacturers around the world with world-class products and services, including emission control systems, catalytic converters and towbar systems.
"Infor's solutions are designed for speed, and provide us with functionality required to increase our responsiveness to our customer requirements and bring products to the market quicker," says Werner de Wever, CIO at BOSAL. "The complete automotive suite with deep core ERP functionality plus ION integrations to Automotive Exchange, Supplier Exchange, Asset Management and embedded BI offers technological and financial benefits, next to adding value for users. The consumer grade experience and social capabilities really make the difference and prove that we are ahead of our competitors in the market."
Infor ION is the fuel the entire system runs on. The open lightweight middleware platform is based on industry standards and integrates Infor and non-Infor applications, like Reporting and Product Life Cycle Management solutions which are already deployed at BOSAL.
"With Infor ION as process enabler, BOSAL will be able to benefit from efficiency gains early on in the project. It will be put in place incrementally and will deliver direct value, building on existing investments. This is why they choose to work with Infor," said Bernd Hau, RVP, Automotive Sales EMEA at Infor.
