)-- Infor today announced Fleischmann’s, a leading provider of yeast and baking ingredient products for the commercial baking and restaurant industries, has deployed Infor ERP LX at all four of its North American manufacturing facilities. The solution will enable Fleishmann’s to streamline business processes across its operations for improved efficiency, quality management and customer service.
Fleischmann’s is using LX to address business-critical areas, such as logistics and demand planning, to help the company respond to increasing competitive pressure and better serve their customers. By providing enhanced logistics control, insight into the entire supply chain and flexible financial reporting, LX enables the company to make real-time strategic operational decisions. The combination of business-specific functionality and other operational changes, will result in improved quality and customer service across the enterprise.
“We had been using our legacy software system for more than 16 years and our processes and procedures had grown stagnant,” said Steven Fucoloro, Director of Information Technology for Fleischmann’s Yeast. “We wanted to remain on IBM’s System i platform and as one of the largest business applications provider for System i, Infor provided the most out-of-the-box functionality with the lowest total cost of ownership.”
LX will provide the company with better inventory and promotional management, as well as access to comprehensive customer account information. With inherent EDI technology, LX allows Fleischmann’s customers to conduct business electronically, thereby reducing order errors and costs associated with order management. In addition, LX’s robust lot management and quality control features offer comprehensive lot track and trace functionality that is critical in the food and beverage industry.
“The food and beverage industry is one of the most competitive and highly-regulated industries, and many companies struggle to meet increasing customer expectations and satisfy stringent compliance regulations,” said Rory Granros, Infor’s director of industry and product marketing for Process Industries. “LX enables manufacturers to effectively manage customer expectations and compliance challenges while improving profitability, transforming their food and beverage business into a dynamic, customer-responsive enterprise.”
Designed with business-specific best practice manufacturing processes, Infor ERP LX is optimized to deliver higher value and a faster return on investment. LX enables manufacturers to improve planning and customer service, control costs, enhance overall efficiency and productivity, and streamline complex manufacturing and distribution processes in today’s global economy, where meeting local regulatory and legal reporting requirements is essential.
