Johnstone Supply Inc., a major U.S. wholesale distributor for the HVACR industry, has completed its implementation Infor Supply Chain Execution (SCE) and Infor ION® and has upgraded to the latest version of Infor Distribution SX.e.
Johnstone Supply originally elected to expand its relationship with Infor to benefit from the most up-to-date functionality and establish greater connectivity between its corporate office and distribution centers. As a result of this project, Johnstone has standardized processes across locations to help create a more consistent experience for customers and help facilitate faster, easier day-to-day operations for employees.
"Johnstone Supply felt that implementing Infor SCE would help to increase efficiency across our supply chain and prepare us for future growth by establishing connectivity between systems, processes, and people, which is essential for effective communication," said Laura Schultz, Johnstone Supply director of IT. "As a long-time Infor customer, decision-makers were confident that the industry-specific capabilities and intuitive user experience delivered by Infor's latest applications would allow us to enhance productivity and support higher volumes as we continue to expand our business."
Johnstone Supply also plans to implement Infor Transportation Management to help better manage inbound freight, helping to make the transportation processes more streamlined and speed order fulfillment from inception to delivery.
Using the Infor Enterprise Performance Accelerator Kit (EPAK), Johnstone Supply can now train new hires in as little as two weeks. This allows the organization to bring temporary employees up to speed more quickly during peak season, which previously presented a challenge due to associated time and costs. Johnstone also elected to implement Infor Labor Management.
