Supply Chain Visibility from Infor’s GT Nexus Commerce Network drives digital SC transformation at Octal
Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced that OCTAL, the world's largest integrated polyethylene terephthalate (PET) sheet and resin producer, has successfully deployed the Infor GT Nexus Commerce Network to enable digital supply chain transformation. The capabilities provided by the GT Nexus platform support the export supply chain by optimizing global logistics, planning and customer service.

OCTAL produces close to 1 million metric tons of bottle grade PET and DPET™ sheet annually from its facilities in Salalah in the south of Oman, Cincinnati (USA) and Riyadh (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia), and it ships worldwide to customers in over 75 countries.

“The delivery of an exceptional customer experience is critical to OCTAL’s long-term success,” said Dennis Melgert, Director of Global Logistics and Supply Chain at OCTAL. “We are digitizing our supply chain, so that accurate information drives decisions, efficiency and superior customer experience. With the GT Nexus cloud platform, we have visibility across our supply chain, which puts external and internal teams on the same page to deliver increased customer value.”

The Infor GT Nexus Commerce Network serves as the central global supply chain information source for OCTAL, connecting supply chain partners, IT systems and internal operational teams to process control applications, documents, and event alerts. Logistics teams can move product more efficiently, and customer service teams use the same information to keep customers informed about critical material flow that will keep their production lines moving.

OCTAL personnel can plan, execute, monitor and measure supply chain activities with a range of business applications on the Infor GT Nexus platform. Application capabilities include:
  • Supply chain visibility into shipment flows, with related commercial documents and freight rates, partner activity, lane capacity, and logistics events 
  • Global logistics sourcing to procure and optimize purchased transportation for ideal lead times and cost-service combinations 
  • Planning system integration, which provides ERP systems with real-time data about what’s actually happening across the global supply chain 

“Industry relies on the patented DPET™ technology from OCTAL to improve the packaging value chain, and the ability to reliably meet demand for these vital materials is key,” said Kurt Cavano, Infor Senior Vice President. “OCTAL recognizes the importance of having a resilient and responsive supply chain that, supported by the Infor GT Nexus Commerce Network, helps it drive increasing value for its customers. We are thrilled to be part of this digital transformation initiative.”

The Infor GT Nexus platform was selected by OCTAL in 2015 and has been in production use there for more than two years. OCTAL is now extending the capability footprint through additional products and broader integration with OCTAL operational systems.
