Advanced ERP solutions with rich functionality and proven achievements of global manufacturing business offer easy implementation and meeting local requirements."

FREMONT, CA: Chuo Spring Co.Ltd, an automotive components manufacturer, adopts an Infor Japan K.K.'s ERP solution for manufacturing industries to improve business visibility and standardize its operations globally. The ERP solution is adopted for at Chuo Spring's Indonesian sites.

Chuo Spring is an automotive components manufacturer specialized in the development, manufacturing, and sale of springs, control cables, and other components incorporated into vehicles. Using its control cable technologies, the company is widening its product range outside of automotive components, too, developing businesses in areas such as construction equipment and welfare-related equipment.

"To enable continued expansion at Chuo Spring, we needed an ERP solution to visualize our overseas site data in real time and enable data-driven business decisions. In addition to the rich functionality and proven achievements for global manufacturing businesses offered by Infor's ERP solution, we were impressed with its versatility, flexible licensing structure, and development environment enabling easy implementation and meeting local requirements." Comments Kenta Koide, VP, Member of the board, Chuo Spring Co., Ltd.

Chuo Spring's overseas network has ten sites in five countries as part of its commitment to overseas expansion. However, because each overseas site operates different core business systems and conducts operations differently, it has been difficult for the head office in Japan to get accurate real-time information. As a result, each site has been left to deploy its own business enhancements, and governance from head office has been largely ineffective. So, Chuo Spring made the decision to leverage Infor CloudSuite Industrial as a core system for its overseas sites, and implement the solution in its Indonesian sites, in recognition of its potential to adapt Japanese standardized operations to sites overseas and support centralized management and global operations from its Japanese head office.

Chuo Spring uses Infor CloudSuite Industrial to manage shipping, sales, procurement, warehousing, and accounting at its Indonesian sites. The company is gradually deploying Infor's single-instance ERP, built for global operations, across its overseas sites, starting with Indonesia.
