Metal bin manufacturer Egbert Taylor Group adopts cloud system

Egbert Taylor Group, producer of four-wheel metal bins, has turned to cloud technology to reduce costs, improve customer service and better monitor production capability.

The company has deployed Infor’s CloudSuite Industrial to effectively manage its 1.5 million combinations of bin sizes, colours, lids, and end customer logos. Workflows Egbert Taylor is looking to streamline include procurement, customer service and communicating with field sales teams.

Egbert Taylor Group finance director, Andrew Davies said that, as the company’s legacy systems were coming to an end, they “required an effective system that enables us to have greater visibility of the business and its processes”.

“Our objectives included improving working capital management through streamlined production processes as well as the benefits of integrating our quoting process into a single cloud based solution,” he continued.

Infor VP solution consulting for Europe, Phil Lewis added: ““Build-to-order and configure-to-order manufacturers like Egbert Taylor Group need robust and fast processes that are keenly aligned to their specific business.

“By putting the technology behind these processes into the cloud, they can remain agile and incrementally expand the benefits of Infor CloudSuite Industrial throughout the business as it grows, without disruption.”
