MP Hygiene Transforms its Supply Chain

Infor recently announced that MP hygiene, the largest French manufacturer of pure wadding paper with the Origine France Garantie® label, has just completed a migration project by opting for the latest version of its supply chain management solution. The Infor WMS warehouse management solution enables companies to manage the operations of their distribution centers globally. It combines advanced warehousing functionality with highly configurable options, integrated workforce, production, task and inventory management, and 3D visualization in a single, intuitive solution that reduces process complexity and improves operational execution. Supply chain director Emeric Guillermain notes that MP Hygiene has been an Infor customer since 2016, and because of the Covid-19 pandemic widespread in 2020, the migration project spawned from it and considered a new project with a new set of goals to achieve. “We called on the logistics expert SNS France, which has been with us from the outset in all stages of implementation and development of our supply chain system,” says Guillermain. Richard Thomas, associate director at SNS France and responsible for the project, says, “MP Hygiene had acquired a good knowledge of Infor’s solution and a certain dexterity in terms of best practices. The migration to a more recent version of the solution was therefore a natural choice, which however required a review of their processes, both in terms of manufacturing and storage.” Since the migration, MP Hygiences activity continues to grow, citing a significantly reduced error rate in terms of data entry and references (from 2.5% to 0.23% of lines in preparation) and gains in reliability and speed when preparing orders and delivery. Batch management has been refined, thanks to the automatic integration of use-by dates and mandatory product specifications. Additionally, a module for managing the SSCC (Serial Shipping Container Code), an international standard for identifying parcels and pallets, has been implemented for better management of goods flows and automation of logistics operations. Lastly, the workforce management functionality of the Infor WMS solution has been deployed for better management of warehouse resources.

Gulfsands Goes Live with Financial System Move into the Cloud with Infor and Progressive TSL

Infor recently announced that independent energy company Gulfsands has deployed Infor SunSystems Cloud as its financial platform via Infor Gold Channel Partner Progressive TSL.
