AMBAC Selects Infor CloudSuite™ Automotive to Drive Value Chain

Highly Scalable, Cloud-Based Solution to Reduce Inefficiencies and Promote Dynamic Decision-Making

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - April 23, 2015) - Infor, the industry cloud company, today announced that AMBAC International has selected Infor CloudSuite™ Automotive to help boost the value chain. As a global supplier of diesel fuel systems and related components, AMBAC was experiencing difficulty in achieving growth and sought a solution that would improve forecasting, promote visibility and foster productivity across the organization. AMBAC selected Infor CloudSuite Automotive thanks in part to its considerable scalability, which will fortify the production process while reducing hidden costs and inefficiencies. Infor CloudSuite Automotive provides AMBAC with a high-quality, cost-effective solution to help the company function more dynamically and improve the decision-making process.

"As a growing company it is very important for us to invest in technology that fits our strategic vision. Infor CloudSuite Automotive not only offers quick deployment, but it is scalable both vertically and horizontally. This gives us a cost-effective technology platform that can be just as flexible as we need it to be," said Robert Isherwood, Chief Executive Officer, AMBAC, International. "Infor provides us with a solution that is both appropriate for where we are now and where we want to be in the future."

As a company with fewer than 50 employees, AMBAC recognized the importance of investing in the right technology to meet the unique goals of the organization. One factor that helped drive the adoption of Infor CloudSuite Automotive was its ability to not only scale up or down but also horizontally. The solution assists with immediate needs such as improving forecasting and increasing visibility. It also provides room for growth to meet the needs of the value chain. Infor stood out from its competitors in the selection process by offering right-sized solutions that are both flexible and scalable. The solution is aligned with AMBAC's strategic vision for building a strong product portfolio that is highly responsive to customer demand. This is achieved by deploying a cost-effective enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to eliminate waste, gain visibility and reduce downtime.

AMBAC will also benefit from Infor ION®, a purpose-built middleware and Infor Ming.le™, the social collaboration engine, which supports internal and external communications between customers and suppliers. These enhancements aid globalization by allowing users to view real-time data at anytime and from any location, helping to ensure that supply shortages are a thing of the past. Infor's strategic partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) will also provide AMBAC with a high quality, secure hosting environment that promotes a competitive total cost of ownership. The improved look and feel of the solution's user interface was another supporting factor in the selection process. The consumer grade user experience stimulates a smooth, data-driven decision-making process that is easy for employees to learn and use.

"Supporting the value chain is a critical component for maintaining a competitive edge in the manufacturing industry. AMBAC needed a solution that was not only the right size and price, but that could also enable their future growth," said Jeff Nedwick, industry solution & strategy director, Infor Automotive. "Infor CloudSuite Automotive delivers a high quality ERP that is flexible enough to meet their specific goals for now and the road ahead. We look forward to building our relationship with AMBAC and providing them with technologies that make the organization more responsive to customer demand."
