JAKARTA, INDONESIA - Media OutReach - 27 February 2019 -Infor, a global leader in business cloud software specialized by industry, today announced that Indonesian bus component manufacturer CV Laksana has increased business efficiencies by 25 percent after implementing Infor CloudSuite Industrial (SyteLine) solutions in its manufacturing and inventory management processes. The manufacturer has also achieved a revenue turnover rate of 15 percent in 2018.
Established in 1967, CV Laksana manufactures highly customizable and complex bus components for clients throughout Asia Pacific. Prior to implementation, Bill of Materials (BOM) processes were done manually and the company faced challenges in managing inventory stock movements from their warehouse.

The company now has the infrastructure to manage complex Bill of Materials of different types of buses that the company produces. Currently the Material Requirements Planning (MRP) system from Infor CloudSuite manages more than 5,000 parts each day, which is a vast improvement in efficiency from previous processes. With Infor CloudSuite, efficiency improvements are expected to further increase in the next few years.
