Vantage Power Deploys Infor CloudSuite Industrial to Improve Supply Chain Visibility

By CIOReview | Wednesday, March 2, 2016

FREMONT, CA: Infor, a provider of business application software, announces that Vantage Power has deployed Infor CloudSuite Industrial to improve visibility throughout the supply chain. Vantage Power is a manufacturer of retrofit hybrid powertrains for buses, enabling operators to reduce fuel consumption and emissions.

Infor CloudSuite Industrial is already implemented by Infor partner Inforlogic, a cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) application and will help Vantage Power in enhancing procurement, improve financial reporting and enable offsite access to critical production and financial information.

Infor CloudSuite Industrial was chosen by Vantage Point due to the strong manufacturing functionality of the application and the expertise demonstrated by both Infor and Inforlogic. According to Vantage Point, it took the decision to deploy cloud-based applications based on the ease of management offered by cloud technology. Migrating to cloud would mean that the company will always be up-to-date on the latest versions of the software, and that Infor would ensure security and reliable off-site access to the application.

"Combining the possibilities of cloud, the manufacturing pedigree of Infor CloudSuite Industrial and the deployment expertise at Inforlogic has led to a clear choice for Vantage Power," said Chris Stock, managing director, Inforlogic.

By adding remote telemetry capabilities to the hybrid engine, Vantage offers customers a combination of live performance data to enable enhanced fleet management and maintenance as well as better fuel economy and reduced emissions.
