Infor Helps Banglacat Increase Knowledge Flow With Infor M3 for Equipment

Infor Applications Unify Processes and Prepare Banglacat for Growth

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Dec 18, 2012) - Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that Bangla Trac Limited, which operates under the name Banglacat, an exclusive dealer for Caterpillar engines and equipment in the People's Republic of Bangladesh, has completed its implementation of Infor M3 for Equipment. The M3 solution, composed of scalable applications critical to the equipment industry including Supply Chain Execution, Warehouse Mobility, Sales Management and Financial Accounting, is helping Banglacat increase visibility of critical business information, support the smooth flow of data between departments and streamline time-worn processes.

News Points

  • Banglacat selected Infor because of the company's deep industry expertise and longstanding history working with equipment organizations. Executives at Banglacat felt that Infor truly understood the company's business model and would be an integral partner in supporting future growth.
  • Infor's specialized applications made for a faster and more efficient installation at Banglacat. Completed in two phases, all milestones and deliverables were completed on time and on budget.
  • Infor M3 for Equipment will streamline key information from sales, service, warranty, finance, and rental departments within a single, central business system -- helping reduce costs and data redundancies through a more efficient use of resources. 
  • Infor M3 for Equipment will help Banglacat provide better customer service through a real-time flow of information that captures and utilizes valuable data at each point of the equipment lifecycle. With more control and visibility, staff will have one version of the truth that runs throughout the organization. And, with peak intelligence and service knowledge, Banglacat can deliver even more value to its partners and customers.
  • Additionally, Banglacat is taking advantage of the Infor M3 for Equipment system's use of Caterpillar-specific interfaces for automating service, parts ordering, parts shipment sales, and warranty.
  • Infor M3 for Equipment also supports the operational departments at Banglacat by allowing them to enter information directly into the system, automating financial entries for cost accounting and accounts payable, and reducing the need for the finance team to request data from other departments, which streamlines the process and keeps staff on task.
