Setting the strategy
To stay on top within the competitive automotive industry, HSV continuously seeks greater efficiencies in its operations with the help of information technology solutions. Its latest innovation is the introduction of a fully integrated, real-time wireless warehousing solution by Infor™. With Infor Warehouse Mobility, HSV can directly receive goods, including capabilities to print barcoded receipt labels, directly pick and dispatch sales, and print invoices.

Lee Webster, chief information officer at HSV, says its customers demand the best, and any process advancement helps HSV to meet these expectations. “Changes in demand and customer priorities are our key challenges,” Webster notes. To stay ahead of the game, HSV continuously reviews its processes to look for possible inefficiencies in the manufacturing process. By identifying warehousing as an area for improvement, HSV has enhanced both its business and operations performance.

HSV chose Infor Warehouse Mobility, because it seamlessly integrates with the company’s enterprise resource planning system, Infor LN. Webster explains: “We wanted an online, real-time solution that maximized our investment in our current system. Infor LN directly processes the order without the need to translate it from another system and involve third-party software.”

Earlier, HSV had upgraded from Infor Baan5.0c to Infor LN to take advantage of its enhanced user interface for improved ease of use, as well as automated processes that resulted in significant efficiency improvements.
