Durst Increases Process Speed with Infor Infor Distribution SX.e Delivers Functionality and Agility for Manufacturing and Distribution Business Units

NEW YORK -  Oct 02, 2013

Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that Durst, an operator of high-end plumbing fixture brand JACLO, has successfully implemented Infor Distribution SX.e. Durst uses two separate business divisions consisting of decorative plumbing manufacturing and plumbing supply distribution. Infor Distribution SX.e provides them with the built-in functionality to help more effectively manage both sectors of the business.

News Points

  • Infor Distribution SX.e delivers embedded pricing information and the ability to import documents directly from Durst's document management system, helping to significantly speed order entry and processing. Reduced manual entry requirements also give users the agility to make changes to orders more quickly and easily and help to minimize data errors for increased order accuracy.
  • While Durst's previous legacy Supply House Information Management system (SHIMS) updated financial data at the end of each month, Infor Distribution SX.e now automatically updates information in real-time, facilitating improved budgeting decisions through greater insight into company spending.
  • Durst implemented the Infor Enterprise Performance Accelerator Kit (EPAK), which provides tools to more efficiently train employees by documenting critical business processes. Capturing this information also provides Durst with the visibility to objectively evaluate and improve established processes. 
  • Durst plans to implement Infor ION in the future to integrate Infor Distribution SX.e with other Infor and third-party systems, including an Infor Barcode application.

Durst Quote

"We're more than a distribution company. We do our own finishing, assembling and machining, so we needed to have both distribution and manufacturing capabilities in an ERP solution," said Chris Pike, COO, Durst. "Infor Distribution SX.e enables us to run both sides of our business more efficiently. There aren't many vendors out there who have an ERP solution with that type of functionality, so Infor was the clear choice for our needs."

Infor Quote

"Infor SX.e is designed to help diverse companies like Durst reduce complexity by automating and simplifying end-to-end operations," said Andy Berry, VP and general manager, Distribution, Infor. "With the ability to enhance order entry, inventory and warehouse management, Infor provides businesses with the necessary technology to help them improve service to customers."
