Successful upgrade of Infor Supplier Exchange

Learn how Sulzer helped a global transportation player upgrade its supplier portal, databases, and server landscape – for better performance and higher IT security.

Success Story

Software migration

Data transfer, software update, and configuration from
a single source

Optimal data exchange with suppliers

State-of-the-art: A smart migration strategy paves the way

Sulzer led the internationally-operating customer’s supplier connection into the technical future.

Within a few months, Sulzer completed the customer’s data migration and connection to the SAP production system, and the go-live was successful. Sulzer then assisted the customer with further optimization and support.

Future-ready: “Infor Supplier Exchange” web applications

Infor is one of the world’s leading providers of business software, offering industry-specific ERP solutions, among other things. The “Infor Supplier Exchange” product was designed to simplify the modern digital data exchange between a producer and its suppliers.

Through the SAP (e.g., ERP ECC, S4) or Infor LN connection, users can now view delivery schedules, create delivery notifications, and so much more.

Support at every migration step

In addition to the classic software installation, we managed all the customer’s correlating tasks. These included switching the longstanding production database to the MS SQL Server, configuring Linux and Windows servers, and improving the IT security of the Supplier Exchange web server.

Cloud-ready: The supplier portal was designed to mitigate future challenges. Sulzer delivers consulting support for migration to the Azure cloud.

Benefits of the Sulzer solution

Automotive, mechanical engineering, and plant construction manufacturers depend on powerful tools to model their operating processes. Infor offers a wide range of software solutions for this purpose: for both self-managed (on-premise) and cloud-based operations.

Networking between Infor and third-party software such as SAP is easy – whether through Infor ION or EDI converters. For example, Infor Supplier Exchange provides a platform for connecting hundreds of suppliers to the company’s own ERP system.

Customized services: Sulzer addresses the customer’s specific needs and system landscapes.
