NEW YORK - Apr 24, 2012
Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that organic baby food manufacturer Organix has deployed Infor10 Demand Planning to support the business as it continues to experience double digit year-on-year growth. The application, delivered on-time and under budget, will help enhance demand forecast accuracy and thereby boost service levels and improve productivity by replacing labor-intensive spreadsheet planning, and reduce inventory and waste.
"We supply some of the biggest names in UK retail and each of those retailers demands a different shelf life so we have a movable feast at the very heart of our supply chain, meaning we have to be proactive and follow best practice," said Hazel Lees, supply chain controller, Organix. "We have invested in Infor10 Demand Planning as part of a drive to future-proof our demand planning processes and we anticipate tangible results when it comes to a reduction in inventory and waste, greater productivity and improved service levels."
"Effective demand planning continues to be a key differentiator for manufacturers," said Pieter Leijten, EMEA VP, supply chain management, Infor. "Recent IDC Manufacturing Insights research has shown that an improvement in demand planning and forecasting is the number one initiative manufacturers are looking to undertake over the next three years."
"Infor has developed robust solutions to help realize the benefits of a comprehensive demand planning solution. Because our solutions are specialized by industry and deal with specific issues such as the various shelf lives demanded by different retailers, they offer significant benefits to top manufacturers like Organix."
