Finnish engineering leader Närpes Trä & Metall (NTM) has selected Infor CloudSuite Industrial Enterprise (Infor LN) to help unify and standardize its complex operational and manufacturing processes across the globe. Delivered via multi-tenant cloud on Amazon Web Services (AWS), the system will be deployed beginning at NTM’s headquarters in Närpes, Finland, and then rolling out across the group’s other sites in Sweden, Estonia, Germany, the UK, Canada, and the United States.
NTM develops, manufactures, sells, and maintains transport equipment for heavy goods vehicles and refuse and recycling material collection vehicles, engineered-to-order to meet the demands of a varied customer base. NTM recognized that it was unable to achieve comprehensive visibility across its entire business with multiple subsystems and silos of information standing in the way of optimum levels of organizational visibility, efficiency, and agility. The company was looking for a solution to bring a commonality to its processes across all business sites, with the goal of unifying and standardizing systems to create a platform for pursuing further growth.
Infor CloudSuite Industrial Enterprise’s ability to handle complex processes and its industry-specific functionality set it apart from the competition, representing a truly global solution that can deliver the level of agility that NTM needs. A multi-tenant cloud deployment was also a crucial factor in NTM’s decision, ensuring the business can benefit from continual updates with minimal administrative burden on the in-house IT team, as well as enabling the swift on-boarding of new entities.
We have the best products, and now we’ll have the best processes. We pride ourselves on engineering excellence and wanted our systems to reflect this, able to manage the variety and complexity of our operations in every region. With Infor we’re confident we’ve chosen the right solution to meet the distinct needs of our growing business. It offers the industry-specific functionality that’s vital for our organization, as well as the flexibility that a cloud-based solution delivers. Not only are we laying the foundations for a wider program of digital transformation across the group, we’re also building a solid platform to support our ambitious growth plans, allowing us to work as one company, seamlessly sharing information to optimize operational efficiency and business agility
More businesses are realizing the importance of industry-specific functionality when it comes to ERP solutions, as well as the crucial role that digitalization has to play in underpinning future growth. NTM’s investment in Infor CloudSuite is the perfect example of this, helping the group to simplify and streamline operations safe in the knowledge that its systems aren’t stifling its true growth potential.
