Infor ERP will now integrate with NCS Direct Store Delivery to offer a complete end-to-end manufacturing solution.
Numeric Computer Systems (NCS) is an Infor solution partner. The agreement to provide integration between a number of Infor's enterprise resource planning (ERP) products and NCS Direct Store Delivery is designed for the specific needs of process and mixed mode manufacturers. NCS Direct Store Delivery is tailored for fast-moving consumer goods customers. When integrated with Infor ERP, the result is a flexible solution that enables adaptability in response to change, consistent production and delivery, and reduced distribution and fulfillment costs.
Polar Corp., the largest independent soft drink bottler in the United States, selected Infor LX and is among the first companies to take advantage of the partnership.
"While ERP LX addresses our manufacturing, warehousing and finances, we needed an application that could support our specific business requirements in regard to direct store delivery, which has fairly complex routing variables," said Paul Paciello, director of IT, Polar Corp. "The NCS Order to Cash application, which supports the Direct Store Delivery software, has a sophisticated routing system and integrates with LX for improved monitoring and tracking of our supply chain. The partnership between NCS and Infor not only provides access to consultants with extensive food and beverage industry knowledge, but also delivers a complete solution to address Polar Corporation's specialized needs."
Polar Corp. is among numerous food and beverage customers that are benefitting from the dual functionality offered via the Infor and NCS alliance.
