Schulman, Inc., a global supplier of custom compounds, masterbatches and resins, will standardize on Infor10 ERP iEnterprise (LX) to create a single ERP system for its worldwide operations. The company has 35 manufacturing facilities globally and net sales of around $2.2 billion .
Infor10 ERP iEnterprise will replace multiple ERP systems, providing common business practices and global visibility into operations in the Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific.
A. Schulman will also implement Infor10 ION, Infor’s lightweight middleware platform, to provide integration and more seamless data flow between ERP iEnterprise and additional applications to support manufacturing excellence.
“Migrating to a single global ERP system will enable A. Schulman to move to common business practices and create better operational visibility,” said Joe Gingo, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of A. Schulman, Inc. “We needed to shift our global operations to a single system, and after reviewing Infor10 ERP iEnterprise and Infor’s ION platform and strategy, it was clear that Infor was the ideal partner for us.”
In addition to ERP iEnterprise, A. Schulman will use ION to integrate other applications and modules including: Infor10 Demand Planning, Infor10 Advanced Planning and Infor SCM Advanced Scheduling. A. Schulman has also selected the Infor Education Performance Accelerator Kit (EPAK), a comprehensive end-user training and support application.
Infor’s Flex Exchange program will enable A. Schulman to upgrade older versions of Infor ERP systems to Infor10 ERP iEnterprise in a more cost-effective manner. A. Schulman is planning to use a phased approach for the global implementation of ERP iEnterprise.
