Infor Helps Ferrari to Accelerate Supply Chain Planning

Infor Sales & Operations Planning Set to Help Drive 40% Improvement in Supply Chain Performance

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 17, 2014) - Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 73,000 customers, today announced that iconic automotive leader Ferrari has expanded its relationship with Infor and invested in Infor Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP). Following previous investment in Infor ERP LN, S&OP is set to replace legacy systems and a spreadsheet-based set of processes, resulting in faster, more agile decision making within the supply chain planning process.

S&OP will provide automated workflows to help Ferrari guarantee the flow of information across demand (from approximately 200 dealers) and supply (into production). The improved accuracy of data, standardized planning and information flow processes and enhanced functionality of S&OP will enable comprehensive tracking of any changes in dealer demand and the subsequent changes to the Ferrari production plan, as well as help improve governance, the approval process and compliance. As a result, this will enable Ferrari to respond quickly to changes and meet customer demand, due to the intelligent business support provided by S&OP.

"Our relationship with Ferrari continues to develop as they extend their leadership position in the road car market," said Pieter Leijten, vice president supply chain, Infor. "For such a prestigious brand, every part of every process must drive excellence. Given the international demand for Ferrari cars, it is imperative that the most accurate picture of demand, from over 300 global dealers all offering individual, personalized supercars, is delivered to the production site in Maranello. This demands world class processes and technology. Infor S&OP will provide Ferrari with the foundation to obtain supply chain excellence."
