Re-engineering for Success

Alfa Laval India taps Intentia for enterprise apps

Tempe, AZ  July 17, 2002  Alfa Laval India, a subsidiary of the Swedish-based engineering multinational, has forged a strategic partnership with Intentia South Asia to implement the full suite of Movex Collaborative Solutions throughout its operations in India.

Alfa Laval India, based in Pune, manufactures and markets plate and spiral heat exchangers, centrifugal separators, decanters and complete project systems. The company is a global manufacturing unit of the Alfa Laval group and exports its products to Sweden, Japan, Spain and Denmark.

The Indian operations include 200 users across Alfa Laval's five factories, 15 branches, one customer service center and headquarters in Pune.

The implementation will include applications to support core business processes such as Movex Enterprise Management (ENM), Supply Chain Management (SCM) and Business Performance Measurement (BPM). The project is slated for completion by the fourth quarter of 2003.

Once the solution is in place, Alfa Laval expects to streamline its local business processes and thereby increase its efficiency levels. The company aims to save on inventory and administrative costs, as well as to improve productivity and operational margins. All employees at Alfa Laval will also have full access to pertinent data that will help them react faster to change and make well-informed business decisions.

"We have partnered with Intentia with the aim of improving overall efficiency within our organization so that we can enhance the level of service we provide to our customers," said Satish Tandon, managing director of Alfa Laval India. "Movex simply seems to be the best solution to meet our business objectives and goals."

"Alfa Laval India is a highly respected engineering company in India," adds Naresh Ahuja, chairman and managing director of Intentia South Asia. "We are confident that Movex will provide Alfa Laval India with the opportunity to expand its market share and expand its operations in South Asia."
