NEW YORK - Jul 19, 2016
Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced that thermoplastic extrusion and adhesive products innovator PAL Group has chosen to standardize on Infor CloudSuite Industrial (SyteLine).
Replacing a legacy system that can no longer offer the support PAL Group needs, Infor CloudSuite Industrial will help improve productivity by enabling personalization for 50 users, which will result in less time spent searching for critical business data and faster reporting. The flexibility of the application will also help establish a common platform to drive growth across both the extrusions and adhesives divisions within the Group.
Following an extensive review of the market, Infor CloudSuite Industrial was chosen on the basis of its rich functionality and its flexibility. The application will help PAL Group extract data and actionable intelligence from its manufacturing processes quicker. The application will be deployed on premise by Infor partner Inforlogic.
"We required a platform to support our growth trends and forecasts, upon which we have set no limits," said Nick Walton, financial director, PAL Group. "Infor CloudSuite, through their partner Inforlogic, provides this and will also enable us to respond more efficiently to our customers' demands. This leads to more growth."
"Our legacy system faced numerous issues," said Ross Herbert, business systems manager, PAL Group. "Extracting information was time-intensive and we faced decreasing options for support. Infor CloudSuite Industrial will firstly help improve productivity by enabling staff to personalize their work screens, whilst still keeping reporting consistent."
"It was clear from our initial meeting with the PAL Group that we not only needed to demonstrate the capability of Infor CloudSuite Industrial but also the credentials of ourselves as a long term trusted delivery partner," said Paula Yarwood, Business Development, Inforlogic. "We did this through a series of structured workshops, where we took the PAL Group team through the system and how it would work for them. Aside from showcasing the capabilities of the product, the process also demonstrated the experience and product knowledge of our consultants."
"Manufacturers such as PAL Group face tough competition and as such must continually innovate," said Phil Lewis, vice-president, solution consulting, EMEA, Infor. "Whilst standardized processes are the backbone of that innovation, technology such as Infor CloudSuite Industrial and the expertise of partners such as Inforlogic helps manufacturers remain flexible and keep competitive in order to grow."
