Infor has announced that Tatra Trucks, Škoda Transporation and, most recently, the traditional tractor manufacturer Zetor Tractors, are among the customers of its industry specific ERP systems focused on discrete manufacturing in central and eastern Europe.
Zetor Tractors has decided to deploy Infor’s ERP solution, which will replace multiple subsystems, to centralise and digitise business processes. The worldwide supplier of tractors expects that the broad functionality and integration of the ERP system, and complementary applications, will allow its more than 500 employees to manage the rapidly changing demands of customers more flexibly, de-risking the current unstable environment.
“Especially in the period of Covid-19, we faced many challenges due to lack of parts, personnel limitations and other circumstances,” said Antonín Kubíček, IT manager at Zetor Tractors. “The Infor ERP solution will help us with process integration and enable more effective production planning thanks to streamlined order generation, production entry, faster change management and further innovation.”
“We are currently registering high demand for process digitisation solutions across central and eastern Europe,” said David Zeman, Infor’s sales director for CEE. “Higher demands for flexibility, variability and optimisation of production processes, motivate companies in the automotive and engineering industries to implement modern solutions, whether on premises or in the Cloud.”
In the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Infor ERP solutions have traditionally been used mainly by companies in the manufacturing sector, helping to streamline and automate discrete manufacturing processes and bring industry-specific functions tailored to their requirements.
