Premium car manufacturer Ferrari is rolling out Infor’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) software to improve the flow of data across its supply chain operations.
Expanding on its initial deployment of Infor ERP LN in 2011, the addition of the Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) module will provide Ferrari with automated workflows and enable information to move easily between its production environment and its network of 300 dealers.
By improving the accuracy of data and standardising planning, the S&OP module will help Ferrari track and respond to changes in dealer demand more easily. It will also improve governance, approval processes and compliance, the company said.
“Our relationship with Ferrari continues to develop as they extend their leadership position in the road car market,” said Pieter Leijten, vice president supply chain, Infor.
“For such a prestigious brand, every part of every process must drive excellence. Given the international demand for Ferrari cars, it is imperative that the most accurate picture of demand, from over 300 global dealers all offering individual, personalised supercars, is delivered to the production site in Maranello.”
Ferrari expects to go live with the system in the second half of 2014.
