Deploying Infor M3 solution to assist a French heavy equipment manufacturer achieve adaptable ERP system
The client is a French heavy equipment manufacturing company dealing in products like forklifts, cherry pickers, tele handlers, and other heavy machinery. The company has a manufacturing unit established in India that exports telehandlers, backhoe loaders, and skid steer loaders worldwide. Before our engagement, the client faced a significant challenge in implementing an ERP solution that best suited the business operations of the European and Indian regions. The client required operational agility to meet the unique business needs in the Indian region through a unified integration that would connect the French and Indian entities. The defiance to this change was a legacy ERP suite with a redundant architecture with low customization options to adapt to localizations. This system resulted in manual intervention to run business processes that reduced business velocity.
The organization was determined to tackle the challenge by leveraging the standard Infor M3 solution. However, the implementation faced issues in complying with regional business exigencies. To address the situation, the organization approached Birlasoft for a digital transformation drive to facilitate a sturdy and robust ERP solution to enhance business resilience and operational agility. As a part of the engagement, Birlasoft assisted the client in deploying the Infor M3 solutions to replace the legacy ERP system.
