Scope and Challenges
Valmet has selected Infor to support a major global business transformation. The Infor suite of software incorporates Infor LN, Infor ION, Infor Ming.le, Infor d/EPM, Infor Warehouse Mobility, and Infor Field Service, and will help drive greater visibility across the organization, boost productivity and capacity planning, and foster close collaboration amongst employees, customers, and suppliers. In turn, this will support Valmet's vision to become a global champion in serving its customers.
Outcome and Implications
Spanning 43 countries for 5500 users, the project is expected to be fully live in 2020, following a deployment that will be undertaken in collaboration with Accenture.
Following a thorough evaluation of the market, Valmet selected Infor due to Infor's ability to provide Valmet with a competitive ERP solution including a modern and mobile user interface. Replacing a heavily customized Baan ERP solution which was no longer fit for purpose, Infor's modern suite of applications will help drive benefits across a number of areas including improved process efficiency, data quality improvement and IT platform simplification. After the project is fully live, Valmet anticipates potential efficiency savings in excess of €30 million annually.
"One of our Must-Wins at Valmet is Operational Excellence and we have defined programs under it. The purpose of the project now to be started with the help of Infor is to renew and improve Valmet's operational capability through process harmonization and standardization, modern and user friendly ERP platform, and data and reporting quality improvement for decision making. We are looking forward to working with Infor on this important project,"-said Ismo Anttila, Vice President ERP implementation at Valmet.
"More and more, organizations are realizing that one size does not fit all when it comes to enterprise applications and that it is possible to benefit from both scale and industry-specific functionality. Through providing capabilities to support processes to a finite level, specific to a particular nuance of a given sector, organizations can enhance their service offerings substantially, as well as driving out a greater degree of efficiencies. Valmet is taking the lead in the way it serves its customer industries and we are proud to play an integral role in supporting its global business transformation." - said Paul Carreiro, Executive Vice President, Managing Director, EMEA, Infor.
