As a result Oman Cables now expects to reap benefits from increased efficiencies, inventory reductions and better decision making.
Infor ERP Baan, a leading enterprise resource planning solution for the manufacturing industry, was chosen following research to replace a proprietory software solution on the Oracle platform. Oman Cables evaluated Infor alongside other internationally reputed ERP systems.
Having selected Infor ERP Baan on the basis of its superior performance and suitability, Oman Cables and Infor began a record-breaking implementation – in less than six months – in time for the new financial year.
“We chose an intense ‘Big Bang’ implementation rather than a prolonged phased approach as we were confident that we could have it up and running in time,” commented Mr. Hussain Salman, Vice Chairman & Managing Director, Oman Cables.
“We have already seen some key benefits in terms of data transparency aiding better decision making. However, we expect even bigger gains as we bring our manufacturing processes under the Infor technology. We anticipate significant reductions in inventory and scrap generation. Stock movement for work-in-progress will also be more focused and efficient.”
Oman Cables has such great expectations for the Infor solution that it marked its launch with a special ceremony and lunch at the Sheraton in Muscat.
“Oman Cables and Infor have worked together to enable an incredibly swift and smooth implementation in time for the new financial year. This will lead to major improvements in its manufacturing efficiency and bottom line figures,” said Eric Smith, general manager of the Middle East office of Infor’s Enterprise Solutions Group.
Infor’s ERP solutions cover every aspect of manufacturing and production; master production schedules, firm planned order processing, material requirements planning, production scheduling and execution, detailed lot tracking, inventory management, multiple production reporting methodologies, and more. Its solutions are fully scalable, supporting both low and high volume manufacturing.
Infor ERP Baan is an extended modular enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution for manufacturers, primarily in discrete industries such as industrial machinery and equipment operating job shops, as well as those with make-to-stock (MTS), assemble-to-order (ATO), make-to-order (MTO), and engineer-to-order (ETO) processes. However, the flexibility of the solutions provided has meant that Infor ERP Baan also supports active production in a wide variety of manufacturing industries.
Infor ERP Baan runs on open systems platforms and offers deep capabilities in project-based industries and those requiring complex configurations.
