In recent years, Japan-based Nippon Systemsware (NSW) has combined the Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) to provide solutions for delivering instructions and collecting performance data in production environments, while supporting its manufacturing customers through their digital transformation (DX).
To further accelerate this DX journey, NSW has recently inked partnership agreement with Infor Japan that allows the former to deploy Infor CloudSuite Industrial solution to its manufacturing customers for managing sales and production planning.
"We are excited about the partner agreement with Infor. This partnership will enable us to offer comprehensive range of solutions for the manufacturing industry, covering both the engineering and supply chains,” saidTakeshi Yamada, executive corporate officer at NSW.
“Furthermore, together with Infor, we will provide high-value-added services to our customers in the manufacturing industry by leveraging synergies with our strength in IoT, AI and embedded software development,” he added.
NSW has a long history of achievement and expertise across the engineering chain (product lifecycle management and product data management), managing data related to design and manufacturing in the manufacturing industry.
The alliance is off to a promising start to fulfil current market and business needs, with the ERP package having already been trailed by a medical devices manufacturer in a project to rebuild its core business system, including its global sites.
Going forward, Infor and NSW will continue collaborating in the areas of Infor CloudSuite Industrial and other solutions for the manufacturing industry as both parties help build core business solutions that support digital transformation for customers.
"We welcome Nippon Systemware to the Infor Partner Network. With Infor's continued commitment to deliver finely-tuned, industry-specific solutions in the cloud to help our customers maximise efficiencies and accelerate growth, and NSW's years of experience in the manufacturing industry in Japan, we are confident that our combined strengths can help to accelerate digital transformation within the manufacturing industry here,” said Shinya Miura, country manager and vice president, Infor Japan.
