NEW YORK -  May 05, 2014

Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that Idahoan Foods LLC, an organization that owns potato processing plants and is a leading manufacturer of retail, foodservice and warehouse club brands of products, has successfully upgraded its ERP to the newest version of Infor M3.  The upgrade is expected to enable Idahoan Foods to better monitor transactions throughout its organization, including manufacturing operations, supply chain activities, customer and supplier relationships, warehouse and distribution processes, and financial management.

An Infor M3 customer since 2009, Idahoan Foods also decided to implement Infor Business Intelligence tools along with Infor M3 to make better, more informed decisions and improve business processes by delivering meaningful information and actionable insight to decision makers throughout the organization. Infor Business Intelligence solutions streamline and accelerate the gathering, analysis, reporting, and deployment of key business information, and will allow teams to share important data enterprise wide to achieve better bottom line results.

As part of the Infor M3 upgrade, Idahoan Foods also plans to leverage the intuitive user interface and new mobile functionality available through the system.  This will enable employees to access information from anywhere and improve communication and collaboration between manufacturing, quality assurance and warehousing. In addition, the new software delivery model will provide the foundation for easier access to major functional updates in the future.

"The upgraded version of Infor M3 is going to impact several departments throughout our organization, and will help us modernize several daily functions so we can support other more critical tasks," said Devin McCarthy, director, Information Technology, Idahoan Foods. "Our teams have the functionality to increase productivity, significantly enhance the management of operational assets, and further increase visibility and control over information. We're also able to better manage customer information from one interface, allowing us to provide better service and support."

Infor M3 supports the core processes in a food & beverage organization including Customer Sales and Service, Supply Chain Management, Manufacturing Operations, and Financial Management.

 "Organizations today often face conflicting pressures to reduce costs while providing increased service," said Mike Edgett, industry & solution strategy director, Infor. "By upgrading to the latest release of Infor M3, organizations are able to increase the value of their solution and make the most of their investment. Built on Infor's new 10x platform, users gain access to the evolution of our technology, which features purpose-built middleware, social capabilities, mobile functionality, enhanced analytics, and the option of cloud deployment."
