Viking Yachts uncovers real-time production costs, cuts warranty expenses by 35 percent with ERP capabilities from Infor
Atlanta, GA June 29, 2006 L-boat builder Viking Yachts this week announced that it will implement Infor's most enterprise resource planning (ERP) technology. Viking Yachts has both reduced costs and improved customer satisfaction dramatically with its current Infor solutions and will build on its results to date with even leaner production methods.
Viking Yachts, a $250 million privately held company, is adopting Infor's ERP SyteLine 7 technology to extend the remarkable results it has gained from Infor SyteLine 6. The company, which manufactures yachts ranging from 45 to 74 feet long and priced as high as $4 million, began using Infor SyteLine in 2001 to control operations at its production facility in New Gretna, N.J., and its customer-exclusive marina and service center in Riviera Beach, Fla.
Viking employs Infor SyteLine, part of Infor's Manufacturing Essentials suite of solutions for discrete manufacturers, to manage product configuration, inventory control, production, procurement, and financial management, while it uses Infor's Field Service-Plus (FSPLUS) software for service history, scheduling and execution. With Infor SyteLine 7, Viking will take advantage of new functionality for controlling operations in multiple sites.
With its Infor ERP solution, Viking has achieved major improvements in its operations.
