One of North America's largest industrial distributors, Kaman Industrial Technologies, has implemented Infor Distribution SX.e at 15 locations. Kaman will rely upon Infor ION®, a flexible middleware platform, to enable integration between Infor Lawson Financials and Infor SX.e.
These locations represent the first phase of Kaman's plan to convert multiple, disparate enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems supporting hundreds of locations across the U.S. Infor SX.e will provide employees with greater visibility across the enterprise and facilitate for aggregation and analysis of information from both systems.
"With most technology vendors, you get a large application that is positioned as one size fits all, but with Infor, we saw a strong desire to really understand distribution value-add services and build features to help us become more competitive in the market," said Michael Pastore, Kaman Industrial Technologies vice president of operations and business systems. "Kaman ultimately selected SX.e because of Infor's micro-vertical strategy, investment in R&D, and overall vision for the product, which we felt demonstrated a commitment to supporting our business both now and in the future."
