AWECO Polska Appliance Upgraded to Latest Version of Infor LN in Nine Months
Infor, a leading provider of industry specific cloud applications, today announced the successful deployment of the latest version of Infor LN by AWECO Polska Appliance. The nine-month upgrade project involved a team of over ten people from AWECO and Infor partner, S&T. AWECO employs 930 people in Poland and manufactures components for dishwashers, laundry machines, coffee machines and vehicles.

Bolstered by the new, innovative functionalities of LN for logistics and other areas of the enterprise’s functioning, the upgrade provides AWECO a path for business optimization. The system also offers access to progressive industry-specific analytics and utilizes Infor ION® and Infor Ming.le™, a purpose-built middleware and social collaboration engine which facilitates internal and external communications between customers and their suppliers. A new interface, as well as unification of the software, ensures that data is stored safely, in accordance with industry standards and legal requirements.

The migration involved implementing the Polish localization functionality of Infor LN, now standard, which allows for a much easier implementation process in international companies operating in Poland and Polish companies with foreign branches. Project preparations included taking a detailed inventory of the legacy solutions used at AWECO and an analysis of the systems by S&T in order to determine the possibility of utilizing the standard functionality of the new system.

The number of system modifications has been reduced significantly and thus has provided convenient use and maintenance of the software. In the finance area alone, the 214 in-house developed applications and systems were reduced to merely 19 since Infor LN has standard functionalities such as flexible reporting and enhancements of bank statement recording.

“From the point of view of the IT department, the migration allowed us to streamline the system customizations and to revise user requirements. At the same time, migration made it possible to implement or plan a range of new processes and to eliminate most of the in-house developed solutions, including the ones used for importing data,” says Dawid Dudek, IT Manager at AWECO.

With the well prepared and executed migration to Infor LN 10.5, AWECO has significantly simplified its system administration. The combination of Infor LN with the Polish localization has improved its legal compliance and unified the procedures, business rules and financial reporting throughout the entire SANHUA AWECO group. Moreover, a centralized common system and a smaller administration team makes application management easier which also results in reduced operating costs. Poland was one of the six countries (Austria, China, Germany, Spain, and Turkey), where migrations to the latest system release were performed.

Infor LN 10.5 offers industry-specific functionality, utilizing an easy to use user interface with rich functionally. This supports globalization by allowing users to view real-time data at any time and from any location. Thanks to a cloud-hosted deployment that runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Infor LN helps to reduce the upfront total cost of ownership (TCO) by using a monthly subscription basis, without the need to purchase additional onsite servers and hardware.
