Plantagen Sows Seeds for Growth with Infor
Infor, a leading provider of industry-specific cloud applications, today announced that Nordics-based garden retailer, Plantagen, has selected Infor to support its digitalization strategy. Comprising Infor CloudSuite™ Food & Beverage; Infor PLM Optiva; Infor Demand Planner; Infor Ming.le™ and Infor ION®, the solution is expected to deliver greater visibility, productivity and efficiencies across the whole supply chain for the retailer, and will go live for 1,000 users in 2018.

With 135 retail outlets across Sweden, Norway and Finland, and a wholesale business supporting 600 retail locations, Plantagen is expanding rapidly, and following a major acquisition, embarked upon a program to modernize its systems. The retailer selected Infor based on its ability to provide a modern, easy-to-use platform for growth as well as scalability and flexibility.

With functionality spanning the entire supply chain, from manufacturing through to the shop floor, where employees use handhelds to input information on stock, transfers and returns, Plantagen anticipates that the solution will facilitate better planning, more precision across product lifecycle management, and reduced costs. Infor ION® will help ensure full integration with other non-Infor systems, while Infor Ming.le™ helps ensure that the user experience is seamless.

“As a business we recognize that digitalization is intrinsic to growth, and Infor is a key part of our strategy to become a digital leader,”
comments Susanna Liljeqvist, CIO, Plantagen. “In any retail environment, you live or die by the quality and consistency of the customer experience, and through delivering greater visibility and insights at every stage of the product lifecycle, we hope to enhance this and leverage our new capabilities to embrace a fully omni-channel business model.”

“Infor’s retail experience and cloud expertise means that we have both the scale to support our ambitious growth plans, together with the detailed insight to support the nuances of our industry sector, and in partnership, we are looking forward to the next chapter in our journey.”

“We recognize that the demands of a fashion or fresh produce retailer vary significantly from a plant and landscaping retailer, and it is this understanding which has enabled us to deliver solutions which support the specific needs and nuances of organizations in different retail environments,”
comments Jason Berry, VP, EMEA – Retail, Infor. “Plantagen has a complex retail and wholesale model, with plans to add an e-commerce dimension to provide a true omni-channel experience, so having a system which brings together all processes – from design and manufacturing to supply chain and the shop floor - is crucial in capitalizing on the opportunity and exploiting digitalization to garner market share.”
