Braunschweiger Flammenfilter Achieves Major Step Towards Cloud ERP Deployment with Infor
January 16, 2018Leading manufacturer upgrades to Infor LN 10.5, integrating all business processes in production, logistics, sales and finance through ERP
Infor, announced that long-standing customer Braunschweiger Flammenfilter has upgraded its ERP solution Infor LN to the latest release version. Braunschweiger Flammenfilter supplies Flamearresters®, pressure relief valves as well as tank accessories for oil and gas companies and the chemical and petrochemical industry. The manufacturer has been using Infor LN 10.5 at its headquarters in Braunschweig since June 2017. With Infor LN the company has integrated all processes including supply chain processes and the diversity of its production that is being created by tens of thousands of product variants being manufactured for customers in a customized fashion.
As one major step towards cloud infrastructure, the project was completed within less than five months. This way the medium-sized business from Lower Saxony and Infor has been able to remove three quarters of all previous customizations from the system - a necessary step for the company to finally introduce Infor's industry-specific CloudSuites in the medium term.
"From our point of view, projects with Infor have been running well so far. Compared to our last upgrade two years before we have even experienced major improvements. The update to Infor LN 10.5 in particular has gone really well, also thanks to a highly professional project management by Infor," says Alexander Buschek, CIO and CDO, Braunschweiger Flammenfilter GmbH. "Two factors show us why: compared to our last upgrade to Infor LN 10.3, the time spent on upgrading customizations has been cut down to less than 10%, while total costs have fallen by two-thirds. This is an important milestone towards cloud readiness, and Infor has proven a competent partner in this respect."
"Infor of course supports long-standing customers such as Braunschweiger Flammenfilter to successfully manage their own digital transformation. Our goal is to help the company to achieve more agility and innovation," says Jörg Jung, Managing Director Central and East Europe, Infor. "As a strategic partner for the age of cloud technology we understand the industry-specific needs of German SMBs and we support our customers to make their processes faster and more profitable."
The strong integration of all present and future solutions is another great benefit for Braunschweiger Flammenfilter: Infor ION, Infor's integration platform, can be used to integrate all applications that may be required in the future, regardless of whether they are Infor's or another supplier's. Users benefit from a consistent user interface that, in conjunction with Infor Ming.leTM, offers extensive social collaboration functionalities.
