Oxford Instruments Measures Up for Growth With Infor: Suite of Infor Applications to Deliver Increased Productivity and Standardization for High Tech Leader

New York, NY | Posted on April 25th, 2012

News Points

Over the next three years, Oxford Instruments will deploy ERP Business across its world-wide businesses.
ERP Business replaces a portfolio of legacy systems at Oxford Instruments, and is expected to help the company improve productivity and deliver on its strategy to achieve 14 percent compound annual revenue growth by 2014.
ERP Business will help drive these benefits by supporting a set of core processes throughout Oxford Instruments including customer facing processes such as order taking.
By offering improved connectivity and integration with existing applications via ION, ERP Business enables 'straight-through processing' where the various components of customer requirements are automatically sent to the relevant companies for fulfillment, without needing additional data entry.
ERP Business is designed to eliminate disparate systems, enable consistent, company-wide training to be delivered via the internet, and accelerate the integration of any further acquisitions. It will also help make it easier to transfer valuable, skilled employees between the Oxford Instruments business groups.
Following a 14 month tender process, ERP Business was chosen for its ability to deliver the necessary connectivity across Oxford Instruments, as well as its industry-specific functionality and scalability.

Oxford Instruments Quote
"We have not just bought a product, we have invested in a partner and have chosen Infor because the company's expertise enables them to cover the majority of our requirements out-of-the-box," said Gary Wearing, Director of Oxford Instruments NanoScience division. "We have some demanding milestones for the time and cost of implementation, and we will be measuring productivity improvements to make sure that the application delivers. But we are confident that both the company and the technology we have chosen will help us to achieve our growth strategy."

Infor Quote
"We have seen in the recent IDC Manufacturing Insights research that complexity continues to hamper the pursuit of profitable growth for manufacturers," said Andrew Kinder, director, product marketing, Infor.

"Infor10 ERP Business provides the tools that help high tech manufacturers like Oxford Instruments conquer complexity and achieve levels of business agility that allow them to continually innovate products and processes to compete, as market conditions change."
