French Dairy Brand La Laiterie de Montaigu Chooses Infor M3 to Gain Performance and Flexibility

Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced that La Laiterie de Montaigu, a French specialist in dairy products, has selected Infor M3, an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, to enable greater flexibility and boost performance.

Following an ERP selection process comprising some of the biggest vendors in the enterprise software market, La Laiterie de Montaigu selected Infor M3 to support the development of the company, whilst integrating with third party applications, including desktop publishing solutions.

Founded in 1932, La Laiterie de Montaigu is an independent family business based in Vendée (West of France) that has established itself as a key player in the dairy products industry. With a strong traditional know-how, the company consistently invests in advanced, best-in-class technologies for its production facilities in order to deliver high quality products to its customers.

La Laiterie de Montaigu initiated the evaluation process for a dedicated ERP system in the beginning of 2015. The dairy leader selected Infor in early 2016 and the implementation is set to take place in two stages throughout 2017.

“Our business is constantly evolving. The development of new ranges of high value-added products, combined with the emergence of new markets for export, were key drivers for new software.  To support growth, we set out to acquire an IT solution capable of driving all our activities, particularly for our culinary and dehydrated powders ranges, while optimizing our supply chain, managing traceability, and better monitoring our business and organizational processes. Infor M3 will bring more visibility and cost control to our company,” says Christophe Morisseau, CFO of La Laiterie de Montaigu.

Infor M3 differentiates itself from other systems through its innovative user interface, a great deal of rich integrated applications, a series of dedicated business functionality, specifically for Food & Beverage industries, and, additionally, for its ability to easily manage mixed and complex environments. Infor M3 is a multilingual, multi-company and multi-site solution.

“Infor M3’s rich functionality, its ability to cover our numerous specific developments with standard processes, the involvement of Infor’s teams to support our staff during the integration of industry and company specific features, as well as the proximity of its partner LTTD Consulting, were all key to our selection of the application,” adds Christophe Morisseau.

Thanks to Infor M3 and its advanced scheduling and planning modules, La Laiterie de Montaigu expects to benefit from tools that will help the company better monitor its processes, and support its innovative approach to delivering excellent quality products.
