Infor nets seven-year SaaS deal with Sealord

Sealord has chosen Infor CloudSuite Food & Beverage (F&B) and Infor Supply Chain Planning (SCP) in an initial seven-year, multi-tenant SaaS agreement to enhance productivity, improve forecasting and better measure sustainability.

Sealord, one of the largest seafood companies in the Southern Hemisphere, is implementing an operational cloud-based platform with Infor to provide day-one functionality gains as well as continuing to adapt and improve into the future.

As an asset-intensive business, Sealord is also looking to incorporate a stronger and modernized asset management solution to cater to its end-to-end requirements, including purchase and commissioning, maintenance and asset management, and tracking from both land- and sea-based users.

Sealord also chose Infor Cloudsuite, which is built specifically for its F&B industry, to establish specific sustainability measures like sea temperature and plastics usage monitoring. With Infor, Sealord will improve the reporting, management and progress of its sustainability goals.

Jarrod Kinchington, ANZ vice president and managing director at Infor, said: “Infor is delighted to be Sealord’s strategic partner, helping to streamline the business and realise new efficiencies with the innovative and industry-specific functionalities afforded by Infor CloudSuite.”

Matthew Dodd, chief information officer at Sealord, said: “Infor has incorporated deep industry-specific features that are purpose-built within Infor CloudSuite F&B which align with Sealord’s business processes and operations. This results in a close fit solution out of the box. Ultimately, we were looking for a strategic long-term partner to work with, so not only do we value the decades of Infor development that we have resulted in strong food-manufacturing capability, we also appreciate that Infor and Sealord share similar visions for people and culture.”
