Long Beach, CA, United States, 2009/06/17 - Award recognizes L’Oréal’s ability to globally standardize plant floor operations and quality processes with an Apriso solution for seamless integration with enterprise business applications. Euronext: #13065; DSY.PA
Apriso®, a leading provider of adaptive software solutions for global Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM), today announced its customer, L’Oréal, won the Editor’s Choice award for overall operational excellence at the 2009 Progressive Manufacturing Summit. Previously recognized as a PM100 winner, this new designation was based on the business value L’Oréal achieved through its implementation of Apriso’s FlexNet®, in conjunction with SAP’s Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system. Benefits include reduced IT costs, real-time traceability and higher quality across their global manufacturing operations.
“By deploying a dual-platform strategy – FlexNet as an enterprise platform for MOM and SAP’s ERP – we’ve been highly successful integrating our shop floor operations with our business applications at the lowest possible cost,” explained Jacques Playe, CIO Operations at L’Oréal. “We use FlexNet’s Core deployment model to standardize business processes across our global manufacturing operations. FlexNet provides consistent operations and product quality data for our enterprise business systems to improve visibility, efficiency and quality across our entire manufacturing enterprise.”
Apriso’s FlexNet is operational at 14 L’Oréal sites, across Europe and North America. FlexNet provides L’Oréal with real-time visibility and control over warehouse, logistics, production and quality management operations. Manufacturing operations intelligence is easily transferred between FlexNet and L’Oreal’s SAP ERP system, providing global visibility for quicker, more informed decision making and improved responsiveness to changing market conditions.
“We congratulate L’Oréal on earning this prestigious award, directly attributed to their strategic vision and commitment to continued investment in manufacturing operations,” articulated Jim Henderson, president and CEO at Apriso. “Apriso’s MOM platform is an ideal complement to ERP, and L’Oreal’s dual-platform approach is enabling them to realize a strong foundation for operations excellence by driving higher quality at a lower cost across their enterprise.”
