Geminite Cement Industries LLC, one of the Middle East’s largest stockers and importers of building materials like gypsum plasterboards, false ceilings, drywall metals, has selected Infor CloudSuite Industrial Enterprise, a powerful cloud-based, industry-focused ERP solution. Geminite is part of the Gemini Group and is in the final stages of commissioning its state-of-the-art process-based fiber cement boards facility, which is expected to commence production during the next two to three months. The company chose Infor CloudSuite to empower its digital path to optimize delivery against a surging demand for cement boards across the region.
By implementing the multi-tenant Infor CloudSuite Industrial Enterprise, running on Infor OS powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS), Geminite is aiming to automate and integrate its production control systems and plant maintenance solutions, removing the need for manual data entry. Infor CloudSuite Industrial Enterprise’s ability to capture data from across the business will enable management and operation teams to create production costing reports, giving a 360-degree view of the business, while raising efficiency across departments with a paperless, process-based approach.
The modern manufacturing ERP solution will help Geminite boost its efficiency, increase visibility across the business, and provide the agility to expand capacity as needed to cater to the region’s fast-growing demand for gypsum boards.
Vineesh Babu, Geminite Group’s executive director, said: “By using Infor CloudSuite Industrial Enterprise on the AWS cloud, we will become a smart producer of fiber cement boards, which are more durable, efficient and eco-friendly. Time-consuming processes will be automated, and we will be able to analyze our daily data to raise efficiency and tap new opportunities, helping us to supply the region’s construction industry with high-quality cement boards in a commercial offering. Infor’s team, along with its partner ITWare, came in with huge domain knowledge and experience and a solution fit, which we decided to go ahead with for a very compelling value-add proposition.”
The deployment will start in April 2022 and is expected to go live within five months. With Infor CloudSuite Industrial Enterprise, Geminite will be well positioned to drive innovation, increase productivity and exceed customers’ expectations while also gaining the agility to upscale rapidly.
