NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jan 23, 2014) - Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, announced today that Madison and Standard Electric companies have selected Infor Distribution SX.e. Family-owned and operated for 100 years, both companies will harness the Infor application to enhance employee processes as well as customer and vendor experiences. Infor Distribution SX.e will also accommodate expanding operations and assist the companies in future growth.
Decision-makers chose the Infor system because of its out-of-the-box functionality that is tailored specifically for electrical, plumbing and HVAC distribution micro-verticals. As two of the leading distributors in their industry, Madison and Standard Electric recognized that the Infor solutions and resources will transform employee operations and facilitate efficiency, growth and a more competitive stance within the market.
- Infor Distribution SX.e will provide visibility across both Madison Electric and Standard Electric. This enables better, more informed business decisions by equipping leaders with real-time insight into critical data from both sides.
- Infor Distribution SX.e delivers intuitive enterprise search functionality similar to today's consumer-grade search engines that will allow users to rank, save settings and filter results. This facilitates greater efficiency within daily tasks and creates faster response times for customer requests by enabling easier location of product, customer and supplier data.
- With personalized business intelligence tools and in-depth, real-time reporting, Infor Distribution SX.e will act as a catalyst for company growth. This is achieved through the decision-makers, who are now able to better identify areas for potential budgetary savings or expansion.
- Madison Electric and Standard Electric will also implement Infor ION and Infor Ming.le in the future to further enhance inter and intra-business communication. Infor Ming.le will appeal to the companies' new generation of employees and facilitate reduced reliance on less efficient tools like email. Infor ION will help to further speed processes by integrating Infor and third-party business applications, enabling connected workflows for faster overall operations.
