Scott Bader Employs Infor M3 Suite to Tackle ERP Woes
NEW YORK CITY, NY: Multifaceted software organization Infor has been sought out by Scott Bader for their ERP services at England. Scott Bader is a chemical firm specializing in synthetic resins and polymers. Its partnership with Infor, to use the Infor M3 ERP application, will help them improve productivity by increasing visibility of maintenance trends and automating compliance processes.
Infor M3 offers flexibility in operations, technology, and scale. It is a centralized ERP which is Java-based for hardware and database independence. As a multi-site, multi-country, multi-language and multi-company solution, M3 empowers the organization to adapt to the changing business needs. It also provides flexibility in managing mixed-mode and complex environments, with the agility to make quick adjustments at any time.
The M3 solution focuses mainly on customer sales and services, financial management, manufacturing operations, supply chain management and equipment management. With such a varied skill set, the ERP system helps reduce manual administration and paperwork for preventive and breakdown maintenance undertaken by Scott Bader.
"As we expand our relationship with Infor, we look for continual, incremental improvement to our processes," says Kathryn Mclean, IS manager, Scott Bader. "This deployment is simply about enabling us to do our maintenance better. It will automate more of our compliance processes and increase the alignment of maintenance operations and the business. That equates to greater productivity and better customer service."
"Chemical manufacturers face ever-increasing compliance demands. That means automation of processes around maintenance is a critical part of ensuring that they can continue to operate at maximum capacity. This implementation shows how Infor M3 continues to offer value to Scott Bader as the relationship with Infor develops." explains Mike Edgett, Director of Industry Marketing, Process Manufacturing, Infor.
