NEW YORK - May 10, 2018
Infor, a leading provider of industry-specific cloud applications, today announced it is helping ELSEN GmbH & Co. KG to further advance its digitization strategy. The owner-managed logistics and personnel service provider implemented the warehouse and transport management solution, Infor SCE. This enables ELSEN to monitor and control inventory in real time across locations, thereby improving fulfilment processes and ultimately customer experience.
ELSEN evolved from a classic carrier company into an integrated logistics and personnel service provider with 16 locations throughout Europe. In addition to comprehensive supply chain consulting, ELSEN supports all operational logistics steps, including quality management, personnel and value-added services. Their customer base includes medium-sized companies in the electrical and aviation industries, retail trade, and leading automotive suppliers. Rising expectations and competitive pressures in the industries ELSEN serves made it necessary to further invest in the digitization of processes.
The group already uses Infor Global Finance, Infor BI for internal reporting, and Infor Supply Chain Network Design for logistics consulting. To further automate operations, ELSEN is employing Infor's warehouse management system. With proven capabilities to dynamically support complex operations, Infor SCE offers an ideal solution to meet the demands of ELSEN customers with a smooth data exchange with their ERP systems: The warehouse management system enables flexible connection to real-time information and third-party software. Infor SCE proposes optimal routes for shipments and digitizes warehouse processes such as receiving, storage, order picking, and dispatch processing, based on an indicator-based control center. The warehouse is completely paperless, providing the basis for greater agility and responsiveness of the entire logistics process. Users have mobile real-time access to the system and information, at any time and from any location. Infor SCE automates visibility to stock levels and movement, labor, capacity, and orders, thus increasing the overview of ongoing processes, proactively addressing potential bottlenecks. This enables ELSEN to increase efficiency and productivity. At the same time, potential sources of error are eliminated, resulting in smoother logistics processes, greater customer engagement, better service levels, and lower costs.
"At ELSEN, Industry 4.0 is not only a vision of the future, but the present. With Infor we have found a partner who will continue to support us in this area and with whom we will always remain at the cutting edge of digitization," says Nafiou Salaou, Senior Digital Officer at ELSEN GmbH und Co KG.
"Digital transformation often doesn't come with big steps and radical changes that deserve the label 'Disruption'. On the contrary: It is about permanent, targeted adjustments to the core processes in the value chain. With Infor SCE, Elsen has again secured a piece of competitiveness in their progressive digitization ", says Jörg Jung, Managing Director and Managing Director Central and East Europe at Infor.
