Infor, the industry cloud company, today announced that Svedbergs, a leading manufacturer within the Nordic bathroom market based in Dalstorp, has completed a successful migration project to a new Infor M3 enterprise resource planning (ERP) application. The upgrade from a legacy M3 system will play a crucial role in the continuous improvement of its sales, procurement, logistics, planning, manufacturing and finance processes across its sites in Sweden and Finland.
Svedbergs (svedbergs.com) has been using Infor M3 since 1987, but wanted to utilize new functionality in order to increase efficiency and visibility throughout its business.
"The overall objective with the upgrade was not just to establish a one-to-one situation where we just put a new more robust system in place and continue to work as before," says Fredrik Björkman, CEO at Svedbergs. "We wanted to harvest more of the benefits that are available in Infor M3 in order to get even more efficient and put a more streamlined business process in place with more visibility across the company. Specifically integrating inventory and accounting to have an instantaneous overview which will improve decision making and financial control.
"We are now in a good position to improve both processes and structures and able to minimize the time and energy spent pinpointing and removing unprofitable bottlenecks in our business.
"The Infor Consulting Services team delivered on the agreed scope, time and budget. They provided project management, business consulting services and technical services such as installation and migrations. We have not experienced any critical issues after going live with the new version. The whole team's knowledge and professionalism were major factors in making the outcome a success."
"To be able to implement processes that can reduce cost and increase visibility without a need for client specific modifications is part of our mission to provide deep domain expertise in specialized industries," says Malte Ekedahl, Sales Director at Infor in Sweden. "With Infor M3 Svedbergs is now able to drive new levels of efficiency right across its operations."
