Cloud-Based Software Enhances Egbert Taylor’s Operation : Egbert Taylor Group has introduced Infor’s CloudSuite Industrial to oversee the management of its 1.5m combinations of bin products which include varying sizes and types of container, customer logos, colours and lids. The worldâs number one designer and manufacturer of four-wheeled, galvanised steel waste containers which has also developed an industry-leading product line for aesthetically-pleasing street furniture for recycling and waste, is seeking ways it can streamline its operation including improving its customer service levels, procurement activities and communication with sales teams in the field.
Andrew Davies, Egbert Taylor Group’s finance director, believes the introduction of CloudSuite Industrial will provide an effective way to create greater visibility for the business and its operational processes. He noted that as the company’s legacy systems drew to an end, its objectives included developing its working capital management through streamlining production processes while the integration of such processes will provide a more efficient, single port of call cloud-based solution.
Phil Lewis of Infor said its software was ideal for a company that builds and configures to order like Egbert Taylor allowing such businesses to improve their services and better align their operational processes. Indeed, the company supplies 90% of all UK local authorities with their waste and recycling containment needs and works with private sector contractors on a global basis.
Lewis said that by placing the technology by which the company’s foundations are built upon into the cloud, the user can enjoy incremental benefits that encourage expansion with growth unhindered by inefficient back office processes.
