Infor recently announced that Watami Co. Ltd. has gone live with Infor CloudSuite Food & Beverage (F&B) – the multi-tenant cloud enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution purpose-built for the F&B industry. This implementation was to improve Watami’s supply chain management (SCM) platform for its sites across Japan. At the same time, Watami will implement data-driven management with Infor Birst cloud-based business intelligence (BI) platform linked to the Infor CloudSuite solution. The Watami Group of companies operates across the food industry in restaurants and meal delivery services. Watami selected Infor CloudSuite F&B for its ability to drive business standardization through industry-specific functions and to build a platform for data analysis. This implementation has helped standardize business processes and data definitions in production management. With that, Watami is better able to advance in cost calculations and production planning.
