High Quality Production Demands met Using Infor LN and ION

Infor , a leading provider of business application software serving more than
70,000 customers, today announced that Infor has helped Ferrari achieve
substantial production growth using Infor LN and Infor ION. Ferrari leveraged
its ERP upgrade to Infor LN to meet a growing global demand and increases in
production quantity without compromising on quality.

custom-configured vehicles a year in sequence while maintaining high operating
line efficiencies and full sequencing with the supply chain. Ferrari is

    applications, providing integrated business processes such as order
    configuration, advanced planning and scheduling, assembly line scheduling
