The Peabody housing group has upgraded to the latest version of Infor SunSystems with iPOS, a fully integrated e-procurement application.
The new version of Infor SunSystems and iPOS will help Peabody drive efficiencies and savings by enabling procurement by department, improved coding accuracy, elimination of duplicate processes, simplified budget checking when raising orders, and reduced support costs. These improvements are expected to deliver a return on investment (ROI) of over $1.5 million in the next five years.
"Peabody provides a good home for 1 in 100 Londoners, and we are building a further 8,000 new homes in the years to come. As we extend our mission, it is vital that we have the appropriate systems to support us in delivering our objectives," says Sonia Ellingham, Peabody finance director. "Peabody is a long-standing user of Infor SunSystems, and our upgrade to the latest version with the iPOS procurement system means we will be able to work more efficiently and effectively. This will help us continue to expand and provide better services to our residents."
Peabody has also selected Infor applications to enhance its budgeting and forecasting capabilities.
"Having a consolidated view of financials and procurement is imperative to capitalize on growth and deliver value to customers and stakeholders," says Jon Casey, Infor financial solutions director in Northern Europe. "This visibility allows customers to identify opportunities and address challenges in their marketplace."
