Spring Snowdrops Image by sunflair from PixabayThere is plenty of news on ERP, though not much covered this week in full. The exception was the competitive win for Infor as Admiral Hotel, which saw it replace an old Oracle solution. Visma continued its acquisition spree. Will it ever end? RamBase continues to drive expansion into Poland and the UK with more hires and partnerships.

Rambase seems to be making more headway in a shorter time than other entrants such as Priority ERP, Rootstock and SoftOne. It is certainly making more noise about its expansion.

Pick of the Week

The Sauermann Group, manufacturers of innovative solutions in the industrial and HVACR markets, has selected QAD Adaptive ERP to support and consolidate their international structure into a globally manageable business. QAD is now used by 230 employees worldwide across 12 sites including 4 manufacturing plants.

Stéphane Verscheure, Chief Digital Transformation Officer of the Sauermann Group, commented: “Thanks in particular to QAD, we have the power of a real international group. The solution is the backbone needed to connect the entities to each other and allow us to operate as a unified group.

“QAD allows us to evolve towards a digitalization and an operational and managerial maturity in the different entities. So it’s the foundation on which we had to build something.

“The initial scope was to enable an exchange with the Group’s subsidiaries and without this digitalization, this would have been unthinkable. The arrival of digital in our corporate culture was more than important and allowed us to have a stabilization in 2021 on an operational and organizational level. I am convinced that if we had not engaged in this project with QAD, our revenue would not have been the same.”
