Bakers AS Standardizes on Infor

Bakers AS Standardizes on Infor
Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialised by industry and built for the cloud, today announced that Bakers AS, Norway’s largest bakery group and a subsidiary of Norway’s largest retail chain, NorgesGruppen ASA, has gone live on Infor M3 ERP. Delivered on time and on budget, Infor M3, alongside Infor Warehouse Mobility, is set to increase purchasing control, help reduce waste by cutting over-production; and help improve both productivity and the quality of financial data for analysis.

Following a thorough review of the market, with support from NorgesGruppen Data AS, Bakers chose Infor M3 on the basis of the industry specific functionality it offered, the established track record of Infor within the baking industry and the low total cost of ownership.

The hosted application has been implemented in two phases, covering first the core operational modules, followed by additional functionality. Extensive testing was carried out prior to go live and over 350 users are set to interact with the application across 12 sites.

Ole H Neergaard, IT director, Bakers AS said: “Throughout the selection and deployment of a new ERP system, the user experience has been a driving force. We chose M3 not only because it suits our purpose but it was notably less bloated than some of the alternatives that we looked at, and enabled us to proceed with only a very few minor modifications, both of which mean less demands on the staff on the factory floor. This is despite us adding modules for purchasing, inventory, production planning and production support. This approach has enabled us to not only implement the application on time and on budget but also to get workers that had never worked with PCs, using technology on a daily basis. We are seeing constant improvements.”

Einar Broch, sales director, Norway, Infor said, “Our focus on micro-verticals and a strategy of no customizations has led to ERP software keenly aligned to the needs of industries with very specific requirements and dynamics, such as baking. Businesses like Bakers work at a huge scale and this means that implementation must be just as aligned to the business as the software. This combination of leaner software and a focused implementation methodology is proven time and again to deliver results quicker.”
