Leading IT and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) experts Kingslake announced a breakthrough partnership with globally renowned Pure Ceylon Tea brand, Basilur Tea, to streamline manufacturing operations through the implementation of the Infor CloudSuite Industrial (CSI) Quickstart solution.
Kingslake has introduced next-generation seamlessly connected manufacturing technology capable of enabling advanced, highly flexible solutions and functionality that is essential for remaining competitive in a technologically driven environment.
Kingslake will host a free webinar that will provide comprehensive insights into how Infor CloudSuite can drastically improve planning and management of people, machines, and tools across a manufacturing supply chain.
The free webinar scheduled for 16 October from 3-5 p.m. will also detail out how enterprises can leverage the solution to reduce lead-time in manufacturing, minimise overheads, reduce work-in-progress and finished goods inventory and ultimately increase throughput in order to achieve expanded profitability in any manufacturing enterprise.
Speaking on the potential of Infor CSI Quickstart to catalyse growth at scale among Sri Lanka’s key business sectors, Kingslake CEO Duleep Fernando said: “Advancements in these technologies means that impactful solutions are more cost-effective and within reach of businesses of any size. For example, we offer special modular user licensed based pricing, which enables a more cost-effective approach to transforming manufacturing businesses.”
He noted that the transformations initiated by Infor CSI Quickstart would ultimately deliver greater competitive advantage through increased efficiency and agility.
Represented by Kingslake in Sri Lanka, Infor is a global leader in providing highly effective, cutting-edge business applications, which can be configured to meet the demands of a wide range of industries.
