The U.S. Census Bureau has selected Infor SyteLine to deliver a fully integrated, automated enterprise resource planning (ERP) system.
As the principal source for data on the nation's people, places and economy, the Census Bureau's use of an enterprise technology platform will provide valuable tools to manage material and logistics requirements. The result will help reduce costs through improved efficiency and collaboration.
Infor SyteLine will allow the Census Bureau to configure terminology and workflow processes to its specific needs. The Census Bureau will be able to more effectively and accurately manage several thousand inventory items. With in-depth analysis and reporting functionality, decision-makers will be able to evaluate a broader depiction of the bureau's needs to help reduce overall inventory levels.
Infor SyteLine's time-phased material management capabilities will also enable enhanced, real-time visibility into total demand. That will support better purchasing decisions to help reduce overall procurement costs.
"Recently Infor has been expanding its focus on the federal government to help agencies like the U.S. Census Bureau optimize their performance and better serve citizens," said Wayne Bobby, vice president, Infor Federal Government solutions.
Infor is working with approximately 300 customer organizations that function within the federal government, and recently announced a comprehensive model of enterprise applications and technology solutions geared specifically to federal government.
