Hartridge Drives Innovation with Infor
Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced that Hartridge, a world leader in diesel fuel injection testing technology, has upgraded to Infor CloudSuite Industrial. The deployment represents part of a modernization program to phase out the company's legacy systems and servers.
Hartridge's orders can be complex and vary substantially. Typically, the order cycle starts with an in-depth analysis of the customers' requirements, before one or more schemes, depending on size and complexity, is proposed and quantified. Once the final design is established, the proposal is quickly translated into production to meet stringent delivery deadlines. Infor CloudSuite Industrial supports this goal through ensuring all information relating to an order can be accessed via a single interface, from order management, projects and production planning, to projects and aftersales support.
"Innovation has always been at the heart of our business, and is key to our future. We recognize that in order to pursue this, we must continuously seek out opportunities to improve product quality and reduce production costs," comments Anton Hobbs, Business Systems Manager, Hartridge. "Having used Infor SyteLine successfully for more than seven years, moving to the latest version of the software was an easy choice as part of our modernization program. It will drive the efficiencies, productivity improvements, and insight we need to keep driving the business forward.
"The next stage of the project is to focus on training in order to maximize the capabilities of working with a fully comprehensive ERP system such as Infor CloudSuite Industrial, including additional functionality to support document management, and potentially, Quality Management software to expedite the benefits we're already seeing," continued Hobbs.
"In an industry which is subject to complex value chains, continuous product launches, complex product configurations and increasingly short lifecycles, having a platform which can manage this seamlessly and without the need for manual intervention is an absolute must," said Phil Lewis, VP for Global Solution Consulting, Infor. "Infor CloudSuite Industrial has been developed with industry specific capabilities to deliver precisely this functionality, leaving more time to dedicate to the core business of innovation."
