NEW YORK - Aug 20, 2013
Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that Marine Harvest, the world's largest producer of farmed salmon, has selected Infor M3, Infor Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) and Infor Supply Chain Planning for its global operations. The applications will be deployed in a phased roll out, with the final site expected to go live in April 2014, with the goal of helping Marine Harvest drive growth by improving demand visibility. They will also help Marine Harvest secure optimized pricing for its produce, while accelerating current traceability capabilities.
"As a microvertical, aquaculture is growing at a phenomenal rate," explained Mike Edgett, Director of Industry Marketing, Process Manufacturing, Infor. "It is among the fastest growing animal food production sectors and accounts for more than half of the fishing industry. This is good news because if current consumption patterns continue, we will need another 23 million tons of fish to satisfy demand by 2030."
"As such, aquaculture demands not only industry-specific functionality but also strong support for growth. Infor M3, supported by other applications such as Infor Supply Chain Planning, delivers not only the support for industry-specific processes but also the scope for scalability, enabling companies such as Marine Harvest to develop competitive advantages that help drive growth."
