Foodex selects Infor CloudSuite ERP platform

Foodex Group, a food importer and distributor in Japan, has selected Infor CloudSuite Distribution Enterprise, a cloud ERP platform with prebuilt capabilities for food and beverage distributors.
Infor for enterprisesInfor’s CloudSuite covers the main needs of large food distributors as standard, from omnichannel sales and order management, through purchasing, inventory and supply management, financial management, and associated analytical reporting with the implementation of the Infor Birst BI module.

“Deployed in a multi-tenant cloud environment — running on Amazon Web Services — will allow us to outsource our maintenance and upgrade processes to Infor’s teams, allowing our users to focus on higher value-added tasks,” Adeline Colinet, Foodex’s IT project director, said.

Selected Foodex key users, assisted by a team of Infor consultants, meticulously evaluated the solution in approximately 10 workshops that were organized during a 6-month evaluation period. Foodex management made a final decision for Infor CloudSuite Distribution Enterprise at the end of 2021, Frederic Russo, Infor SVP for international sales, said.

Infor’s management team has become the sponsor and guarantor of the success of the project, by engaging three of its executive managers at the highest level. While a project team is being set up at Foodex, the solution is expected to be rolled out in two stages beginning in April 2022.
