Infor Cloud’s ‘functional richness’ wins over EJ

Infor (opens in a new tab)">Infor has revealed that EJ, a world leader in the manufacture and distribution of access solutions for water, drainage, telecommunications and services networks, has chosen to implement Infor M3 in the cloud as part of an ambitious project to overhaul its global IT infrastructure.

The Infor solution will be installed at the company’s French and American sites, enabling EJ to standardise its business processes. Infor M3 replaces existing legacy systems that are no longer suited to the production processes of modern companies seeking agility and optimisation of their production costs.

EJ chose Infor M3 for its ability to meet the business requirements of industrial manufacturers in standard mode. As Infor’s partner on the project in Europe, the Elcimaï group will support EJ with the implementation.

Gérard Doucet, director of information systems for EJ in EMEA, said: “Because of the reduced complexity and thanks to the functional richness of the standard solution, we opted for Infor M3 in a private cloud deployment. This allows us to work with complete freedom without depending on the time and process constraints in the US, with 24/7 availability.”

Laurent Jacquemain, Infor’s senior vice president & general manager for southern Europe, said: “A company like EJ has operations all over the world that respond to different rules and production rates. With Infor M3 in the cloud, EJ benefits from all the flexibility and agility of a solution dedicated to industrial manufacturing and open to future developments. All of this ultimately contributes to optimising their processes and increasing their market share and revenues.”
