The supplier of plastic components for the automotive industry Joyson PlasTec GmbH decided to leverage Infor CloudSuite Automotive to benefit from greater business agility and flexibility in an increasingly competitive market by implementing the multi-tenant cloud solution.
Joyson PlasTec GmbH is a leading producer of large plastic parts for the automotive industry. Its portfolio includes injection-molded interior and exterior solutions for trucks and passenger cars. Joyson PlasTec employs around 380 people at its headquarters in Albertshausen, Germany.
Infor CloudSuite Automotive has been developed to meet the technological needs of the automotive industry. It features a wide range of functionalities regarding quality and production management, supply chain transparency, planning, and customer relationship management, as well as analytics through Infor Birst.
As a result, decision-making and reporting processes are significantly accelerated. The solution offers organisations the opportunity to further develop the areas of Internet of Things (IoT) and machine connectivity, and to use integrated electronic data interchange (EDI) functionalities, all based on Amazon Web Services (AWS), ensuring that highest security and performance requirements are maintained.
The scalability and price-performance ratio of the cloud solution were important factors in choosing Infor as well.
Infor’s newly developed 60-30-10 approach will be used for the implementation process. The goal is to use Infor’s Implementation Accelerator to map at least 60 percent of all necessary functionalities and processes in the software standard and to implement another 30 percent through configuration options to ensure a smooth transition to live operation. The remaining 10 percent — the customer’s individual, highly-specific business processes — will be agreed upon separately. Go-live is scheduled for 2022.
