Engineering parts supplier Hayley Group has chosen Infor's distribution essentials system to streamline the processing of sales and purchase orders.
Hayley Group signed the £500,000 deal with Infor to provide 250 users with a single and real-time view of stock worth over £12m across 32 branches.
The company identified the need to provide customers with the ability to order parts online to reduce operating costs and process orders more efficiently.
Hayley Group supplies bearings, seals, metals, lubricants, and power transmission components for specialist engineering projects.
"Once the implementation is complete, the system will enable our global customer base to place and track their orders online, reducing time spent processing paper requests," said Jen Newton, IT manager at Hayley Group.
Newton said it was also clear the company had outgrown existing systems and needed a new IT system because of increasing product complexity and overseas expansion.
"Infor's distribution essentials met our needs, especially in terms of flexibility and ease of use," she said.
Infor's distribution essentials software is scheduled to go live across the Hayley Group in June 2008. In the first stage of implementation, thousands of stock codes will be transferred to the new system.
Last year Infor acquired SSA making the third largest enterprise softwrae company behind Oracle and SAP.
