Infor, a global leader in business cloud software recently announced that Kyowa Chemical Industry, a manufacturer and seller of chemical products for industry and healthcare, has implemented their flagship ERP solution. The firm has implemented Infor M3 Cloud, Infor’s ERP software for large global manufacturers, distributors, and after-sales service providers primarily to enhance business data visibility and business efficiency.
Kyowa Chemical Industry manufactures and sells industrial products, pharmaceuticals and food additives using the magnesium in seawater as the main raw material. The firm also has the largest share in the domestic market for inorganic industrial chemicals and active pharmaceutical ingredients. The implementation of Infor M3 stands on the lines of an increase in shipping percentage increase, particularly of products shipped overseas, mainly for industrial use, and with five production/sales sites overseas, including in the Netherlands and China.
To further grow its business in Japan and overseas, Kyowa Chemical Industry is working to achieve business data visibility and business efficiency improvements.
As its office computer systems aged, Kyowa Chemical Industry decision to adopt Infor M3 Cloud will help it bundle together all the functionalities required for global sales, purchasing and inventory management, and enables centralized data management with a single system. As an additional factor, Infor’s use would also help in production management for domestic and international process manufacturing industries, and Kyowa Chemical Industry is considering adopting a production management package in the future.
In addition to sales, purchasing and inventory management, Kyowa Chemical Industry is considering using Infor M3 as the core factor of the system to realize optimal coordination of supply and demand on a global scale.
“At Kyowa Chemical Industry, we have continually worked on enhancing our sales and production sites in Japan and overseas to directly provide our customers around the world with unique products. We adopted Infor’s ERP cloud solution to enable connection with branches overseas, which are growing in importance, and to drive business efficiencies,” said Mitsunori Kado, director and head of human resources at Kyowa Chemical Industry. “Going forward, we hope to draw from the extensive process manufacturing knowledge of Infor to continue enhancing our business platforms and expand our range of high-safety, eco-friendly products globally.”
