“We were looking for a fully scalable solution that would allow us to streamline processes as well as support the dynamic development of our business,” says Dominik gschwender, CEO of Aircom. “Doing business internationally is associated with a number of challenges that must be overcome. Distributed production, supply chain management, providing efficient customer support, and connecting all individual processes – these are just a few of them. On top of that, our business is growing now. We are about to start production in India and Mexico. Therefore, we really need professional and proven tools, such as those offered by Infor. “
The choice of Infor CloudSuite Automotive gives the company access to a complete and scalable industry solution that allows it to reduce infrastructure costs.
“We selected Infor CloudSuite Automotive because it is dedicated to the automotive industry with specialized features and out-of-the-box best practices that enable faster and cheaper implementation,” said Gschwender. “I am convinced that this solution will help Aircom to pursue its international commercial development.
The most important goals related to the implementation are the replacement of the current system with a more modern and functional system and the implementation of proven industry practices to help Aircom grow its business. Infor’s cloud solution provides a flexible way to grow the business globally, especially in China, India and Mexico.
The solution is implemented by Merino Consulting Services BV – an international alliance partner of Infor – as prime contractor, supported by S&T, an Infor distribution partner in Poland. Due to the ongoing pandemic, most of the implementation work will be done remotely. “Based on our industry knowledge and extensive experience with Infor CloudSuite Automotive, we have an agile approach to deliver a solution that will support Aircom’s international growth,” said Kris Ulburghs, vice president of sales at Merino Consulting BV services.
“The Infor CloudSuite Automotive solution and Infor Automotive Implementation Accelerator will help us better prepare for the emerging needs of our automotive OEM customers. As this is a multi-tenant solution, it will be continuously updated by Infor with new features and innovations dedicated to the automotive industry. This eliminates the need for system upgrades, which will enable the efficient implementation of new functionality without exposing the business to the risk of lengthy implementation projects, ”explains Gschwender.
After deployment, the system will initially be used by more than 100 employees in Poland, before its deployment in other countries.
