Infor, a provider of business application software, has joined forces with luxury sports car manufacturer Ferrari. According to this new agreement, Ferrari will be investing in Infor Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP). The S&OP will be abolishing the age-old legacy systems and spreadsheet-based processes of erstwhile ERP LN contract, to make way for a faster and more precise supply chain planning process.

The contract will help Ferrari to make use of automated workflows of Infor’s S&OP, in order to maintain a constant flow of information between demand from the market/dealer and supply from the automaker’s manufacturing plant. This in turn, will improve the accuracy, planning and flow of data within the company.

In addition, Ferrari can also track and alter the changes, taking in the factors of demand from dealer and supply from its production plant into consideration. This effectively will reduce the time taken by company to meet the customer demand by a substantial degree.

Commenting on this new move, Pieter Leijten, Vice President, Supply Chain, Infor, said, “Our relationship with Ferrari continues to develop as they extend their leadership position in the road car market. 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.”
