New Zealand based seafood company Sealord has selected Infor CloudSuite Food & Beverage and Infor Supply Chain Planning, looking to enhance productivity, improve forecasting and better measure sustainability.

Sealord is also looking to incorporate a stronger and modernised asset management system to cover purchase and commissioning, maintenance and asset management, and tracking for land and sea-based users.

Infor CloudSuite Food & Beverage (F&B) will also help Sealord establish specific carbon and other sustainability measures such as sea temperature and plastics usage monitoring, and then report and manage progress towards its sustainability goals.

"Infor has incorporated deep industry-specific features that are purpose-built within Infor CloudSuite F&B which align with Sealord's business processes and operations. This results in a close fit solution out of the box. Ultimately, we were looking for a strategic long-term partner to work with, so not only do we value the decades of Infor development that have resulted in strong food-manufacturing capability, but we also appreciate that Infor and Sealord share similar visions for people and culture," said Sealord CIO Matthew Dodd.

The initial agreement for CloudSuite F&B and Infor Supply Chain Planning runs for seven years.

"We needed to address growing business and security risks associated with our legacy systems. Infor will enable us to redesign our core financial systems around current and anticipated business requirements. With Infor, we will be able to more easily automate workflows, month-end processes, and provide standardised reports to increase productivity across the business," Dodd added.

The Infor software will allow Sealord to add lead indicators, statistical data, and other non-financial information relating to areas such as sustainability, market share, employee numbers, customer sentiment, market trends and health and safety data.

The Infor software will be used across the entire Sealord business, including the fishing, aquaculture and land-based factory processing operations in New Zealand and Australia, plus the global sales operation.

It will provide comprehensive multi-currency financial consolidation within the ERP system, allowing Sealord to retire the costly, standalone consolidation software it has been using.

"Standardising on one procurement system will create process efficiencies and reduce costs. It will also improve speed and accuracy, as well as the visibility of planning and forecasting. With Infor's ERP solution, Sealord will save valuable time through the use of modern workflow, automation and AI tools," Dodd said.

"Infor is delighted to be Sealord's strategic partner, helping to streamline their business and realise new efficiencies with the innovative and industry-specific functionalities afforded by Infor CloudSuite," said Infor ANZ vice-president and managing director Jarrod Kinchington.

"We've built a very good relationship with the business despite pandemic disruptions. We look forward to helping Sealord meet its strategic goals, so that they can focus on their core business while our platform provides the data and seamless tracking they require."
