Daudruy and its subsidiaries focus on oilseed-related businesses, offering customers vegetable and animal oils and fats, biodiesel and biogas.
Infor’s solution is a cloud-native enterprise resource planning (ERP) suite powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Daudruy’s legacy ERP had been in place for almost 20 years, and no longer met the requirements of the company's operations, nor those of modern commercial exchanges. Its maintenance was becoming increasingly hazardous, required costly and time-consuming specific developments, and offered no guarantee of longevity.
Pierre-Louis Daudruy, co-manager of the Daudruy Cos, said: "The project we are carrying out with Infor and LTTD Consulting involves technological and business challenges, not to mention human considerations. The solution must absolutely meet with the unanimous approval of our team of 70 users, who are used to precise and efficient functional processes, but who, to our great satisfaction, have welcomed the change with enthusiasm. This is particularly important for our company, as we are welcoming new employees who want to perform their jobs with modern, intuitive and user-friendly tools, which will enable them to evolve within an ambitious environment at the same pace as our company."
Infor partner LTTD Consulting will carry out the deployment.
Laurent Lebecque, ERP manager at Daudruy, said: "The 100 percent AWS multi-tenant cloud solution was the most attractive option in terms of security, process automation, infrastructure, agility and speed. The choice of Infor and its partner LTTD Consulting was obvious, based on their references in the food and beverage sector, and with its solution whose standard features may challenge our practices to some degree — which is what we also wanted — but which allows us to project ourselves into a modern dynamic in line with the uses and requirements of our times.”
The project to implement Infor’s solution was launched in September, followed by workshops in line with LTTD Consulting’s methodology. It will continue with two implementation phases, one in November 2024, and the other in June 2025.
