Laidlaw Forges Ahead with Infor
Infor, a leading provider of industry-specific cloud applications, today announced that architectural ironmongery, handrails and balustrades, fire door sets and access control specialist Laidlaw has invested in Infor CloudSuite Industrial as part of a major £2m programme to double the size of the group in the next five years.

Deployed via the cloud across six UK sites, the application will replace a variety of legacy systems that, over the course of 30 years, have been heavily customised. Infor CloudSuite Industrial will help deliver greater visibility and accuracy of information, as well as standardised processes throughout the business. One of the first projects the application will support is the implementation of a rules-based system for supplier and product rationalisation.

Following a thorough review of the market, Infor was chosen on the basis of its out-of-the-box functionality, the clean user interface and data visualisation options, and Infor’s commitment to cloud. The cloud benefits of centralised, automatic upgrades to the application and the ability to scale as the business grows, were particularly attractive to Laidlaw.

“Following our management buyout of Laidlaw in 2016, we immediately set to work on a massive programme of investment and modernization,” said Andrew Gratton, financial director, Laidlaw. “A key part of this has been to put in place a technology infrastructure that enables us to be agile and see right across the various aspects of the business. Strong references in related industries, as well as a commitment to simplify business processes through the cloud meant Infor was an obvious partner as we continue to invest heavily in all areas of our business.”

“Businesses like Laidlaw that have grown out of acquisition and have been operating in different areas for quite some time, typically see substantial benefits very quickly from standardising on new cloud-based software,” said Phil Lewis, vice-president, global solution consulting, Infor. “It is not just a case of new processes but also better interfaces, greater access to data and more reliable insight into the business. That all quickly translates to greater business agility and making the most of new opportunities.”
