Metcam, a fabricator of sheet metal components and assemblies for OEMs, today announced it has been recognized by Infor, one of their key software vendors, with an Excellence in Action Award. The Award was presented at Inforum 2014, Infor’s annual user conference, in New Orleans on September 17.
Excellence in Action Awards honor organizations that have successfully deployed Infor technology to drive business value, reduce complexity, and improve overall performance in four distinct categories - Financial Excellence, Operational Excellence, Employee Excellence and Customer Excellence, and an overall Customer of the Year. Metcam’s award honored their efforts in Financial Excellence.
Metcam first approached Infor for assistance in enhancing the company's overall material planning and control activities through improved material flow, improved operational efficiencies, and reduced inventory levels. Success in these competitive markets means providing the highest quality products, delivered on time at a competitive price. To meet these goals, Metcam utilized Infor Syteline for their Materials Planning and Inventory Control project.
The financial and performance impacts of Metcam's project have already proven to be substantial. The organization has able to reduce man hours to execute and manage scheduling and planning, overtime required to meet sales order activity, raw material dollars required to support business activities, and costs for expedited activity of all types (purchasing, manufacturing and customer order fulfillment). In addition, Metcam increased visibility to enterprise-wide business practices, streamlined and refined processes throughout the organization (administrative, production, sales, financial and quality), and improved the overall corporate culture through better visibility and collaboration.
“This award serves to recognizes the concerted efforts of our team alongside the consultants from Infor to help us realize our substantial goals for improved financial efficiency, said Metcam President Bruce Hagenau. “ We’re already realizing the positive impacts of our Syteline deployment and expect to recover the investment made over the past two years within the next twelve months, yielding a positive financial return as early as 2015.
