Japan's Topre Selects Infor's Automotive Industry Cloud ERP as Its Platform for Driving Company-wide Digital Transformation
Automotive components giant leverages Infor cloud as a core business system that will pave the way for other similar companies in Japan
TOKYO, JAPAN -- 26 March 2020 - Infor Japan K.K., the Japanese subsidiary of Infor, a global leader in business cloud software specialized by industry, today announced that Topre Corporation has selected Infor CloudSuite Automotive, Infor's cloud enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution for the automotive industry.
The company will leverage this ERP solution on its core business system for the management of production, sales, purchasing and inventory for its domestic automotive business across seven sites, and will also use the suite for accounting management across its entire domestic operations.
In the future, Topre plans to roll out the cloud ERP solution to all its global sites, including the US, China and Thailand. Infor's cloud ERP is viewed as a platform with capability in production management, which is an absolute priority among automotive companies seeking accurate production-planning and on-time customer delivery.
Topre is a manufacturer of a range of products that supports people in their daily lives, from pressed automotive components for frames and other parts of automobiles, to refrigerated trucks for the safe transportation of food, air-conditioning systems to improve comfort, and electronic equipment that is essential in the information technology economy.
The company's automotive business in particular, which is focused on pressed automotive components, accounts for about 70% of the Group's total sales. It is also an expanding business area for Topre, which continues to evolve press forming as one of its core technologies.
Japan's highly-competitive automotive industry is currently undergoing an enormous transformation, with an increasing need to drive digital transformation through utilization of the "Internet of Things" (IoT) and other state-of-the-art technologies, and improvement of business practices. Topre previously used an in-house core business system for achieving function-specific optimization of production management and costs.
To enable it to respond to new initiatives for transformation, however, it decided to introduce a cloud-based core system package with high scalability and the ability to standardize business processes. As a result, it chose Infor CloudSuite Automotive, Infor's cloud ERP solution for automotive companies, as its new core business system. (*)
