MFA Incorporated, a farm supply and marketing cooperative with more than 45,000 members in the Midwest, has selected several Infor business software solutions as part of a two-phased enterprise application renovation project. Upon completion, MFA will rely on Infor solutions in the areas of customer relationship management, enterprise resource planning, financial management, performance management, and supply chain management to provide access to real-time information.
MFA's deployment will first focus on upgrading its core financial package, human resource management and its wholesale operations business. These upgrades set the stage for future integration with the more than 100 retail operations in Missouri and adjacent states.
"Due to the seasonality of our business, it is imperative to have the appropriate insight into our operations and inventory to accurately place product prior to and during each growing season," says Ernie Verslues, controller, MFA Incorporated. "Infor understands our unique challenges and delivers solutions that will enable us to elevate our high customer service standards."
The agricultural industry's ability to react to changes in demand, weather, commodity pricing, and market conditions is integral to its long-term success. With Infor's solutions, MFA can quickly model and identify how shifts in demand or production will impact their business, providing greater accuracy and flexibility in forecasting and demand planning.
