Steelmaker Picks Infor For Performance Management

Infor has announced that Hadley Group has extended its portfolio of Infor solutions with an investment in Infor PM 10 (Performance Management) software. Hadley will deploy PM 10 for more agile budgeting and forecasting within its manufacturing sites in the UK and Germany in early 2010, and later roll it out to staff in Dubai and Thailand. The company has outgrown using Excel spreadsheets for budgeting - a manual process that typically takes more than three months to conduct every year.

Hadley rolls more than 125,000 tonnes of steel every year for international customers in industries including automotive, construction and aerospace. It chose PM 10 because it could easily integrate with its existing Infor enterprise resource planning (ERP) Baan5 software to provide some of the essential date feeds for the PM solution. PM 10 was also selected because of its ability to deliver a complete end-to-end performance management solution, including budgeting, forecasting, planning, consolidation, reporting and analysis all from a single database to ensure data integrity.

In order to help users adopt the new system, Hadley needed a solution that retained the spreadsheet familiarity which would ensure a smooth transition to PM 10. Hadley has also invested in Infor PM Application Studio for enhanced business intelligence, and is piloting an upgrade from Infor ERP Baan 5 to Infor ERP LN, the latest version of Baan. This is being conducted in a test environment in the UK before adopting and rolling out to other sites.
