Gloucester Engineering Deploys Infor's ERP SyteLine Software

Gloucester Engineering, a company offering plastics extrusion and converting industry, will implement Infor's ERP SyteLine Software.

The company said that it selected Infor ERP SyteLine because it is a true multi-tenant solution that can be configured to integrate disparate systems, providing visibility across operations.

In one application, tracking prospect opportunities, shop floor monitoring, general ledger entry and financial reporting are housed. Company officials said that this will enable their four business units to function within a single ERP software system.

“Infor's ERP SyteLine's subscription model is a true multi-tenant SaaS (News - Alert) solution that gives customers the flexibility to grow in the future without needing to rip and replace it with an upgrade or system modification, thus significantly reducing the total cost of ownership,” said Mark Humphlett, director of ERP Marketing at Infor.

Using the software-as-a-service (SaaS) subscription model, Gloucester expects to benefit from the scalability, risk reduction and longevity offered through the cloud. With the help of ERP SyteLine’s intuitive user interface and Infor ION integration capabilities, Gloucester will be able to manage its business processes, CRM, sales, financials, mixed mode manufacturing and more.

Infor ERP SyteLine provides a single data repository, allowing users to access real-time, consistent information. Gloucester employees will be able to track customer and account information more closely by having a centralized source for information, said company officials.

Additionally, Infor ERP SyteLine's SaaS model is always current and synchronized with its hardware. Company officials said that this eliminates the need for Gloucester to update servers or resolve compatibility issues.

“Infor ERP SyteLine's SaaS model gives us the scalability to support future growth without forcing us to increase our IT and administrative costs,” said Adrian King, vice president of Finance, Gloucester Engineering, adding that having data in the cloud enables the company to focus on its core business and leave system and hardware administration and backup to Infor.

Infor is expected to host the system and handle future upgrades so Gloucester does not have to expand their IT infrastructure as their company grows. Copley Consulting Group, an Infor Channel Partner (News - Alert), helped Gloucester identify ERP SyteLine as the software to address its business challenges.

Earlier this month, Avis-Budget Group Chile, through Renta & Servicios, selected Infor EAM to enhance asset management throughout locations in Chile.
