News Release

Sanborn Will Use Infor to Tame Manufacturing Diversity

Infor SyteLine to Help Enhance Planning, Reduce Delivery Times and Manage Documentation
Released: 23rd October 2013
Publisher: Infor Global Solutions

Farnborough - October 2013 – Infor, a leading provider of business application software with more than 70 000 customers announced that Sanborn a.s., a Czech machinery manufacturer, will implement Infor SyteLine for more effective manufacturing processes. The solution will be deployed by ITeuro, an implementation partner of Infor in the Czech market. Infor SyteLine is set to be up and running in the Q1 2014.

Infor SyteLine will cover all standard processes in the company including economical, manufacturing and logistics processes. The customer expects more transparent manufacturing, more effective load of manufacturing capacities, more precise delivery times and effective documentation management – and increased customer satisfaction at the bottom line.

One of the reasons for decision to deploy a new system was a termination of support from the existing solution vendor. Anyway, the system was not able to meet demand for manufacturing planning from point of diversity of manufactured products and components, as well as planning sources and capacities.

Sanborn manufactures both large and small parts, in large and small series, both on stock and on order, provides service activities etc. All manufactured products need detailed documentation, which is often quite extensive. The manufacturer faced this challenge through an operative management and improvisations.

“Our manufacturing activities include a number of different type of production, and that’s why we were looking for a system able to manage our manufacturing processes,” said Silvestr Dvořák, IT Manager, Sanborn. “We need to have a business software covering all our manufacturing processes including integrated manufacturing control. Infor SyteLine was the only solution, which met our requirements.”

“In the Czech Republic there are many small and medium sized machinery companies, which feel increasing pressure for faster and more precise delivery,” said Monika Vitásková, Channel Manager, Infor Czech. ”Sanborn decided to face these challenges by deployment of a proofed discrete manufacturing solution with support of highly skilled Infor partner – ITeuro.“
