Madison Electric and Standard Electric Select Infor SX.e




Infor’s reinvigorated wholesale distribution software has new wins. Most recently, the Madison Electric and Standard Electric companies, both family-owned and operated for 100 years, have selected Infor Distribution SX.e to improve internal processes as well as customer and vendor experiences. It’s also expected that the flagship distribution enterprise resource planning (ERP) suite (see vendor snapshot here) will accommodate expanding operations and assist the companies in future growth.
 
In a final contest with an equivalent distribution ERP product from Epicor, decision makers reportedly chose the Infor system because of its out-of-the-box functionality that is tailored specifically for electrical, plumbing, and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) distribution microverticals. In addition, Infor Distribution SX.e delivers personalized business intelligence (BI) tools, in-depth real-time reporting, and intuitive enterprise search functionality similar to today's consumer-grade search engines that allows users to rank, save settings, and filter results. This facilitates greater efficiency within daily tasks and creates faster response times for customer requests by enabling easier location of product, customer, and supplier data.
 
Madison Electric and Standard Electric will also implement Infor ION and Infor Ming.le in the future to further enhance inter- and intra-business communication. The social Infor Ming.le user interface (UI) should appeal to companies' new generation of employees and facilitate reduced reliance on less efficient tools like e-mail. Infor ION middleware will integrate Infor and third-party business applications to enable connected workflows for faster overall operations.
