Vari-Form has selected Infor CloudSuiteTM Automotive to improve business processes and streamline product innovation.
As a global provider of structural automotive hydroforming, Vari-Form sought technology that would make the company more dynamic in creating more than 7 million parts each year. Infor CloudSuite Automotive provides reliable access to a flexible technology platform that will help reduce customizations, lower risk, and increase overall productivity.
Vari-Form is expanding, with new facilities in European and Asian markets. The company decided that switching to a cloud environment would be practical and economical in servicing its growth initiative.
"Our company is in the midst of a major global expansion, so it is more important than ever for us to use a modern technology portfolio that can help us seamlessly transition without sacrificing our existing business continuity. Infor CloudSuite Automotive provides us with a competitive edge by granting us a flexible product solution that is both innovative and affordable," said Gabriël Dikkes, Vari-Form information technology manager.
Infor's strategic partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) will provide Vari-Form with a high-quality, secure hosting environment that promotes a modest total cost of ownership. Infor solutions also will provide key language components that enable Vari-Form to use local languages for internal communications. Vari-Form already uses Infor EAM and Infor Supplier Exchange to help manage operations and drive innovation. Infor's targeted approach in servicing customers with right-sized technology helped lead Vari-Form to opt for the cloud expansion.
"Beyond the solutions themselves, Infor offers a holistic approach to servicing customers. They enabled us to choose the precise products and implementation strategies we needed without having to purchase elements that did not directly service our business goals," Dikkes said.
