Infor’s cloud solution will enable Camatic to run its business in an integrated, multi-site manner as well as manage several technology challenges, including:
- eliminate hardware upgrade cycles and associated costs
- eliminate business risks associated with in-house IT infrastructure
- shorten upgrade cycles for patches and new functionality
- improve accessibility for staff working in remote offices and from home
An existing Infor customer, Melbourne-headquartered Camatic has clients that span the globe, from the North Queensland Country Bank Stadium to the Atlanta Hawks’ State Farm Arena. Other notable Camatic projects include the Sydney Opera House refurbishment, Hoyts Cinemas, Event Cinemas and Melbourne Cricket Ground in Australia, and the high-tech Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, which hosted the 2019 Super Bowl.
“Being a global business, that makes what we do quite complex. With different time zones to manage, it’s crucial that we have access to data every minute of the day from any location,” says Camatic planning and production control manager Jamarl Scase.
Scase said despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Camatic is on track with plans to expand in 2021, and Infor is the ideal partner to help achieve its goals. “In our line of business, even the smallest mistake can be costly. We make thousands of seats in one go and a single error would have a big impact. We need a solution we can rely on, and our experience with Infor and Infor LN has shown that we’ve partnered with the best in the industry. Infor’s deep industry expertise is what we value most, as we know that each solution is purpose-built for a particular industry.”
In June, technology research firm Gartner positioned Infor CloudSuite in the Visionaries quadrant of the 2020 Magic Quadrant for Cloud ERP for Product-Centric Enterprises. Infor was positioned highest for its ability to execute in the Visionaries quadrant.
“We’re thrilled that a global Aussie icon like Camatic has again chosen Infor, and this time to underpin its manufacturing operations in Malaysia,” Infor ANZ managing director Jarrod Kinchington said. “The strengthening of our relationship is a result of the immense value our team and solutions have been able to deliver to Camatic over the years. We look forward to helping Camatic advance its global footprint in the cloud.”
