|Unified Systems and Customization Capabilities Increase Overall Efficiency
ATLANTA - Jul 20, 2011
Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that Governair, an industry leader in custom air handling and direct expansion air conditioning equipment, has successfully implemented Infor ERP SyteLine to manage all business processes in a single, easy to use application. In only six months, ERP SyteLine helped Governair cut physical inventory process time, the time between preparing to take inventory to completing inventory analysis, in half by providing comprehensive visibility into stock and physical management of its products. ERP SyteLine's extensive configuration options give Governair the flexibility required for its made-to-order units, as well as the functionality to accelerate manufacturing and more efficiently meet customer demand. Additionally, ERP SyteLine offers the scalability necessary to support and sustain Governair's future expansion plans.
Governair implemented Infor ERP SyteLine to accommodate its built-to-order manufacturing style, as the system's configuration capabilities facilitate production of unlimited combinations of tailor-made air conditioning units.
ERP SyteLine enabled Governair to cut inventory process time in half in only six months, by providing full visibility into inventory, reducing out-of-stock items, and improving physical management of inventory.
All manufacturing, order entry and accounting is managed through ERP SyteLine, permitting Governair to control all business processes within a single system.
ERP SyteLine provides employees easy access to relevant information and visibility across plant operations through one user-friendly interface.
Simultaneously scalable and manageable, ERP SyteLine enables Governair to stabilize its internal processes in order to prepare for future expansion efforts and Sarbanes-Oxley compliance.
"Since 2007, we have almost doubled the size of our business, and our old system was unable to support our growth, creating an unmanageable disconnect between manufacturing, order entry and accounting. We had to enter orders three times in three different applications," said Jeff Forman, vice president and general manager, Governair. "SyteLine was the ideal fit for us because everything operates within one system, reducing labor costs and allowing our employees to focus on other critical business matters. We feel prepared for future planned expansion now that the disconnect is gone."
"SyteLine's user-friendly interface coupled with its extensive configuration options deliver a manageable, well thought out and frequently enhanced product," said Mark Humphlett, director of ERP Marketing, Infor. "With the latest release of SyteLine, Infor is demonstrating its focus on maintaining industry specific and personalized ERP systems that help customers improve business efficiency, customer service and overall manufacturing productivity."
