NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - July 28, 2014) - Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that Turtle & Hughes, a leading distributor of electrical and industrial equipment, has successfully implemented Infor Distribution SX.e across its enterprise. The company elected to replace its legacy Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system to benefit from the innovative, industry-specific functionality delivered by Infor. With a single solution to manage front and back-office operations including warehousing, order entry and inventory control, Turtle & Hughes will be able to further simplify business workflow, improve customer satisfaction and reduce operational costs.
"In this particular industry, investing in a robust ERP system that can efficiently manage an extensive inventory is one of the keys to increasing profitability," said Pete Billson, technology director, Turtle & Hughes. "Not only has Infor Distribution SX.e helped us to do this, but it has also enabled us to create actionable data to drive smarter purchasing. This helps us to ultimately deliver a useful, end-to-end integrated supply solution for customers - our main priority."
Infor SX.e automates Turtle & Hughes' core day-to-day processes, helping to speed operations and ensure timely shipment deliveries from all nine of the company's distributions centers. With the tools they need to increase efficiency and reduce manual tasks, Turtle & Hughes' employees can focus on providing superior quality service and support to customers.
Infor SX.e also supports Turtle & Hughes Integrated Supply (THIS), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Turtle & Hughes, Inc. THIS' approach is a differentiator amongst traditional distributors and outsourced models that provide SKU based procurement for customers, positioning the company as a thought leader in the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) industry. Infor SX.e will help THIS to deliver targeted services for supply chain analysis, business process improvement and transaction management.
In addition, the capabilities of Storeroom for Infor SX.e will allow both Turtle & Hughes and THIS to provide enhanced warehouse management services to customers, overseeing everything from setups, issues and returns to inventory movement and serial processing. Storeroom communicates directly with Infor SX.e through Infor ION
"Infor Distribution SX.e allows decision makers to anticipate future problems and outcomes, giving companies a competitive advantage," said Andy Berry, general manager and vice president, Distribution, Infor. "For a company like Turtle & Hughes, Infor's capability to provide flexible, out-of-box features and industry-specific integrated supply initiatives can help to significantly increase operational efficiency and profitability."
