Kingspan Turns Up the Heat with Infor

Kingspan Turns Up the Heat with Infor
Infor, a leading provider of business applications specialised by industry and built for the cloud, today announced that sustainable energy innovator Kingspan Environmental has invested in a suite of Infor applications. Designed to support Kingspan Environmental’s goals, the first phase of the investment is set to go live in late 2018, with 1200 users across 20 sites globally.

The Infor suite, which includes Infor LN, Infor d/EPM and Infor CX, forms the single largest IT investment made by Kingspan Environmental and replaces a current system that no longer supports the aggressive goals for growth within the Division.

Infor LN will help standardise a range of key business processes including quality control and production on the shop floor and tracking goods through manufacturing. Elsewhere, Kingspan Environmental will use Infor applications to improve existing sales and operational planning and demand forecasting capabilities.

Following a thorough review of the market, Infor was chosen on the basis of its partnership approach, the established track record of Infor within manufacturing, and both the integration capabilities and strong user interface (UI) of the software.

“As Kingspan Environmental has expanded, we have outgrown the capabilities of our current system,” explained Richard Mayrs, Head of IT, Kingspan Environmental. “We have developed separate systems for different entities within the Kingspan Environmental division, leading to a lot of manual work to reconcile and integrate the systems. By standardising on a single, multi-company system, we will not only have consistent and unified operations and information, but a base for further growth and acquisitions.

“Companies such as Kingspan Environmental that are growing quickly know they need to invest in technology that will act as a platform for where the company will be in five years, not just where it is now,” said Phil Lewis, vice-president, global solution consulting, Infor. “That means a first stage of standardising operations and reporting to get a unified view of the company and to ensure each company in the Division is pulling in the same direction. After that, new technology can be injected into processes such as sales and operations planning and improvements tracked to demonstrate clear ROI.”
