European malting company aims to harvest business data with Infor

Infor has announced that Finnish grain, malting and food manufacturing company Polttimo has implemented Infor CloudSuite food & beverage in five European countries. 

Delivered via multi-tenant cloud on Amazon Web Services (AWS) across Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Poland and Lithuania, the application aims to help harmonise technology and ways of working leading to better traceability and operational transparency.

Polttimo says it expects to see an increase in the transparency and subsequent control of key business metrics, better business continuity, improved efficiency and collaboration with stronger quality controls and preparedness for an evolution towards integrated business planning

Infor’s application will replace several existing ERP systems and deliver the benefits of standardisation to the Polttimo Group. 

Teemu Pohjola, CFO of Polttimo Group said: “It is testament to the skills and collaboration of Infor and Polttimo that we have been able to implement a common ERP platform amidst some of the most challenging conditions. We have completed more than 80 percent of our go-lives remotely and we look forward to leverage the benefits of the new ERP.”

Malte Ekedahl, Infor vice president for the Nordic added: “We continue to support a growing number of leading Nordics businesses as they undertake substantial initiatives to improve their competitive position. This investment by Polttimo is another endorsement of our cloud industry-specific strategies that can help deliver best practice programmes to companies who are looking for a transformation.”
