Australia’s Sutton Tools recently deployed Infor M3 CloudSuite for manufacturing to achieve a timely and accurate understanding of its business to drive product and company expansion both domestically and abroad. The business has successfully implemented Infor OS cloud operating platform, which includes Infor Intelligent Open Network (ION) and Mongoose, to fine-tune internal processes and reduce total cost of ownership. Per the press release, migrating to the cloud from a Movex/Infor M3 on-premises environment has saved Sutton Tools hundreds of thousands of dollars on new computing systems, and improved system integration and supply chain visibility across three manufacturing sites and three distribution centers — under the guidance of Infor global partner Fortude. According to Sutton Tools, upgrading goals were to improve business IT uptime, reduce the effort required to upgrade an on-premises system, take advantage of modern, continually upgraded cloud service features. centralize its growing number of operational sites and existing third-party cloud-based services, and make it easier to integrate with third-party applications. Further, transitioning to the cloud has delivered company-wide benefits beyond cost savings.
