Curt Manufacturing Selects Infor ERP

Trailer-hitch producer Curt Manufacturing chooses Infor to gain flexibility and scale

ATLANTA, Jan. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Infor, the largest global enterprise software provider exclusively focused on developing solutions for the manufacturing and distribution industries, today announced that Curt Manufacturing, a Wisconsin-based manufacturer of towing-system products, has chosen Infor to provide an enterprise resource planning solution integrating its two plants and seven North American distribution sites.

Curt has twice been named Wisconsin Manufacturer of the Year by Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce, deriving in part from its innovative product line, including color-matched hitches for the SUV and light-truck market. This rapidly growing company has chosen to ensure its future growth through investment in advanced software solutions.

As a result, the company elected to work with Infor channel partner Information Systems Engineering, Inc. (ISE) to implement Infor's XA enterprise resource planning solution to standardize processes across all its locations, increase visibility of its processes to improve decision making, and provide a stable platform that can be scaled upward easily. XA is a major element of Infor's Manufacturing Essentials suite of solutions.

Curt will use the Infor technology to manage and integrate all aspects of its business. "Infor XA's breadth and depth of function are very impressive," said Curt Manufacturing Marketing Director Scott Morrison. "We are particularly enthusiastic about its scheduling and execution functions. Beyond the solution itself, however, we determined that Infor and ISE had the most manufacturing expertise of any of the providers we were considering, and its customer references were outstanding."

The company anticipates that its new Infor technology will be up and running in all nine sites within ten months. By improving visibility of inventory and shipments, the Infor ERP solution reduces lead times. Infor's solution promotes lean manufacturing by providing real-time visibility of order status and reducing the need for safety stock. Its tracking systems also enable companies to improve dramatically both the predictability of materials shipments and on-time deliveries.
