Menz & Gasser Tempted to Taste the Benefits of Digital Transformation with Infor
Infor, a leading provider of industry-specific cloud applications, today announced that Italian jam and marmalade manufacturer Menz & Gasser, has selected Infor technology to help digitally transform the business. The transformation is expected to begin with a project designed to help standardize operations, drive new product development and improve supply chain performance. To be deployed by Infor partner Avaap, Infor OSand Infor PLM Optiva are expected to be key elements of a company-wide evolution of business processes already supported by Infor LN ERP.

Following a thorough review of the market, Infor was selected in part, because of the flexibility of the Infor hybrid cloud model. This flexibility is designed to enable Menz & Gasser to deploy these applications initially on premise and then migrate to the cloud following a major infrastructure upgrade, currently planned for 2020.

Menz & Gasser has undergone a substantial period of growth, leading to the deployment of an array of different, customized applications supporting the production, product development, document flows and project management business processes, but without the support of a dedicated solution.

By implementing Infor technologies, Menz & Gasser plans to leverage an integrated set of functionalities and standardized business processes. The potential benefits focus especially on improvements to the efficiency and effectiveness of the processes around product development, industrialization and supply chain flows.

“We see this as the first step in a truly strategic partnership between Menz & Gasser, Infor and Avaap,” said Corrado Tita, IT manager, Menz & Gasser. “Future plans beyond cloud adoption include the implementation of additional tools, such as CRM and EAM. We believe Avaap can help us to leverage Infor technology to its full value and help us deliver a complete digital transformation.”

“European manufacturers are in an excellent position to exploit new enterprise software trends,” said Phil Lewis, vice-president, global solution consulting, Infor. “Hybrid migration paths offer the stability and reassurance of remaining on premise but also a quick path to the cost saving benefits of the cloud. Combined with the opportunity to standardize operations and improve customer service, European manufacturers are set to seize a keen competitive advantage.”

“Like other customers, Menz & Gasser wants to move away from the hassle of trying to knit systems together,” said Enrico Capogrosso, delivery manager for Avaap Europe. “We look forward to the opportunity of supporting their digital transformation and delivering creative approaches to help lower the total cost of ownership, accelerate time to value and sustain higher quality through the implementation of Infor software.”
