Infor Launches Implementation Accelerator for Food & Beverage

Flexible Solution to Minimize Risk and Decrease Cost of Deployment

NEW YORK -  Jun 24, 2013

Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced the general availability of the Infor Implementation Accelerator for food & beverage industry customers. The solution is designed for organizations that want to implement an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution quickly, while still benefiting from its flexibility to support future growth. Infor Implementation Accelerators are preconfigured industry and product solutions that are based on the latest version of the Infor application suites to deliver core industry processes for confectionary, dairy, bakery, protein, fruit & vegetables, and other food manufacturing companies. The reduced implementation time can help decrease cost, minimize risk and speed time-to-value for customers in the food & beverage processing industry.

By simplifying implementation, these pre-build solutions provide a more immediate opportunity for business improvement to help drive a faster return on investment. The Infor Implementation Accelerator solution delivers pre-configured business processes, training material, and templates to create more immediate value. By tailoring to the needs of the multiple departments within a food and beverage company, customers achieve more value in areas such as customer service, production, procurement, finance, and quality control.

"Food and beverage manufacturers of all sizes face similar challenges when dealing with short-shelf life materials, regulatory compliance, volatile demand, and an increasingly complex supply chain," said Mike Edgett, food & beverage industry strategy director, Infor. "Infor recognizes these challenges and responds with a tailored approach that streamlines the implementation process to help decrease implementation costs."

As an organization changes and grows, it's easier to expand the scale and scope of their solution and integrate it more fully with other applications. Employing an Infor Implementation Accelerator can be the final step or just the first step towards an ongoing process of building functionality and continuous IT improvement. The Infor Implementation Accelerator for process manufacturing is designed to reduce cost, marginalize risk and deliver a faster production time.
