NEW YORK - Feb 28, 2013
Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced a deal with Australian fluid transfer solutions provider, Pirtek, to implement a complete ERP system as it looks to grow its global focus.
Pirtek is an Australian company which operates in 13 different countries. The company has partnered with Infor to streamline its vast distribution, service and reporting processes and provide it with far greater visibility into its operations. Pirtek looked towards a provider with experience in global markets and with high quality, integratable products across both point of sale and mobile devices. The company has begun adopting Infor's SyteLine, with the initial rollout expected to be completed before the end of 2013.
- With an increasing global presence, Pirtek now faces a number of challenges from differing laws and regulations in new markets, particularly from a financial reporting perspective. Infor's global experience means that the SyteLine software comes integrated with the nuances of the countries that Pirtek operates in.
- Pirtek is currently focused on improving its Business Analytics to better slice and drill into different segments across the group and to collate information across multiple business units. Infor's Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing strategy will be the perfect match for Pirtek's analytical requirements.
- Pirtek is also adopting Infor's mobility technology to better equip on-the-ground service staff to deal with critical information while on the road.
"The business is rapidly growing on a global scale and it was time that our ERP system reflected this growth. An internal ERP review highlighted that we needed to keep up with the ever changing data and reporting requirements, rules and regulations across our different regions and stock management demands that are present in a company operating across a number of countries. The importance of being mobile and having real-time access to back-end systems remotely was a high priority for us and it's great to partner with Infor," said Jason Dormor, Chief Information Officer, Pirtek.
"Infor understands the challenges facing service-based companies in the current climate and we provide adaptable, flexible, and fast solutions for these challenges. Pirtek wanted an ERP system which can support the business growth on a global scale and remove many of the hassles of operating across a number of countries. SyteLine will provide the company with a holistic view of operations and assist franchise owners in managing day-to-day activities," said Ian Desbrow, Managing Director Australia and New Zealand, Infor.
