Creative Merchandising Systems Upgrades Entire Network Infrastructure and Positions for Growth with Godlan and CloudSuite Industrial (SyteLine) ERP

CLINTON TOWNSHIP, MI--(Marketwired - July 19, 2016) - Godlan, a manufacturing ERP software specialist (Infor CloudSuite™ Industrial - SyteLine), Infor CPQ (Configure Price Quote) specialist, and Infor Gold Channel Partner, announced today that CMS (Creative Merchandising Systems) has selected Infor CloudSuite Industrial (SyteLine) ERP to further elevate their business. CMS is a dynamic manufacturing organization known for their quality, eye-catching display fixtures for supermarkets, convenience stores, specialty wine and retail environments. The initial software selection consisted of ten of the top ERP packages in the world, and then narrowed to three, and finally after a thorough comparison Infor CloudSuite Industrial (SyteLine) ERP was selected as the best fit for the business.

"Our previous ERP was limited, leaving our users with a thirst for data and BI that was not available," said Michael Smith, EVP, Creative Merchandising Systems. "Now with CloudSuite Industrial (SyteLine) ERP, we are getting real-time data and can take action."

A critical point for CMS in the evaluation was to move from a nearly 100% BTO (build to order) environment to having the ability to "configure to order" when appropriate. With CloudSuite Industrial (SyteLine) ERP and the CPQ configuration engine, they can do just that. CMS also significantly increased visibility with APS (Advanced Planning & Scheduling) and the Planner's Work Bench within the system.

"We are very impressed with CloudSuite Industrial (SyteLine) and its abilities," commented Smith. "We knew we could get away with a lesser solution, but would have to switch in 4 years due to growth. SyteLine will support us for many years as we continue to grow."

In just the short period since go-live, CMS has already experienced a 75% reduction in the time it takes to complete invoicing. They are also saving 40 hours per month in labor tracking, freeing up team members for more strategic tasks.

Godlan achieved ranking on the 2015 Inc 5000 list, a TEC Accreditation for ERP Solutions in 2013, 2014 & 2015, was awarded the Infor North America SyteLine ERP Partner of the Year 2011, Infor Regional Partner of the Year 2013, and is an approved Infor Gold Channel Partner serving customers for over 32 years.
