Infor, the industry cloud company, has announced that INETEC, a provider of technology for non-destructive examination, has migrated to Infor CloudSuite Industrial Enterprise, a cloud solution powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) and designed specifically for manufacturing companies. The company expects to improve its operations around the globe as well as to reduce its IT administration overheads. The solution has been deployed in collaboration with IPL Consulting, a regional Infor channel and implementation partner, and launched into production in October 2023.
Headquartered in Croatia, INETEC offers innovative robotics and software for non-destructive examination, mainly for nuclear power plants, with products and services meeting the highest quality and safety standards. As a project-focused robotics company, INETEC needed to use a sophisticated and flexible ERP solution, and it selected and implemented Infor LN. Due to dynamic growth and a new subsidiary established in the Middle East, in 2022 the company decided to move to the cloud version.
Infor CloudSuite Industrial Enterprise was implemented and launched into production during 2023. The company now has less administration, with incremental innovation replacing costly and time-consuming versioning and upgrades, compared to the on-premises version, and easier access to data globally providing more possibilities to use mobile applications, which is important for employees working around the globe. Analytical capabilities in the solution provide managers with better and more accurate insights into individual projects and project costs and lead to better decision making. In addition, INETEC started using new Croatian localisations for the cloud, owned by Infor.
“We appreciate the minimal need for customisation in the standard version of Infor CloudSuite Industrial Enterprise,” said Damir Osterman, CIO at INETEC. “The cloud version has fitted perfectly into our business environment and helps us to better manage our global growth. We have to give big credit to IPL Consulting, as they led us smoothly through the whole project and fulfilled all our specific business requirements.
“After an initial investment in migration, we are expecting to eliminate the need for future significant upfront investments in hardware and infrastructure, since we can leverage the infrastructure provided by the cloud service provider that should lead to potential cost savings.
“Since Infor handles the maintenance and updates of the infrastructure, the burden on our IT team is decreased in the time and effort spent on routine tasks like patching and system updates. At the same time, centralised management tools in the cloud simplify IT administration tasks and visibility of system state, making it easier to manage and monitor our system and data.
“INETEC’s global operation now has better scalability, and we can utilise that to accommodate business growth and changes in demand that are crucial for our global operations with varying resource needs in different regions.”
“Infor CloudSuite Industrial Enterprise brings fast and efficient support to companies with a clear international growth strategy,” said Anton Zelnik, Manager at IPL Consulting Adriatic. “As an Infor partner, we are witnessing the increasing popularity of cloud-based solutions, whilst seeing how on-premises ERP solutions just can’t provide the support needed by complex enterprises, which demand efficient business control.”Click below to share this article
