With more than 200 branches and distribution centers, Kaman is the third-largest North American distributor in the power transmission and motion control market.
"Managing more than four million items in our global catalog, Kaman needed to find an ERP system that could facilitate easier, accurate communication in a single instance across locations in multiple countries and users in the field," said Brian Lombardo, senior director of business systems, Kaman Industrial Technologies.
Distribution SX.e will provide Kaman with out-of-the-box functionality for faster, easier deployment, helping the company quickly realize efficiency and visibility gains. Infor Distribution SX.e is designed specifically for companies in the distribution industry to help manage everything from warehousing and logistics to customer relationship management and financial reporting with multi-language and multi-currency capabilities.
"With Infor Distribution SX.e, we can train new users and have acquired sites up and running on the system quickly, with the confidence that information sharing between our worldwide locations will be fast, consistent and reliable," Lombardo said.
Kaman will also implement Infor Lawson Financials for financial management and Infor Supply Chain Execution for warehouse management as well as Infor ION technology, Infor's lightweight middleware, which enables integration between Infor and third-party applications and facilitates faster upgrades in the future.
