Organic wholesaler Bio Partner expands business with installation of Infor’s industry cloud service

Swiss food wholesaler Bio Partner has successfully implemented Infor CloudSuite Food & Beverage. Besides automating and accelerating business processes, the company benefits from the scalability, security and innovation of the Infor cloud platform powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Bio Partner Schweiz AG is the leading wholesale partner in the Swiss organic food market, based in Seon (Canton Aargau). The company supplies 3,500 customers in the specialist organic trade, retail, catering, and food processing industries with a full range of organic products and services. Due to the ongoing trend toward sustain-able and organic food, demand at Bio Partner is growing, and the resulting business challenges are growing, too.

Bio Partner’s previous locally-hosted

ERP system could no longer meet the company’s requirements, so its leaders looked for a solution that would cover the company’s needs. Infor’s industry cloud solution impressed with its built-in food and beverage wholesale capabilities and future-proof innovations.

Infor CloudSuite Food & Beverage is specifically built for the food and beverage industry and provides proven business processes and preconfigured capabilities as a true public cloud service. With Infor’s multi-tenant cloud strategy, Bio Partner benefits directly from innovations that are continuously being added, driven by the needs of all Infor users in the industry without having to do upgrades.

With Infor’s cloud solution, Bio Partner improves the management of its inventory turnover and returns of excess and expired products. Especially when trading fruits, vegetables and dairy products, an efficient handling solution is crucial regarding products’ shelf life.

Infor CloudSuite Food & Beverage also supports the Swiss wholesaler in managing its suppliers. With about 10,000 products, independently running workflows are essential to operate efficiently. One part of this is the automated connection of the ERP system to the web store, guaranteeing the electronic exchange of data between the company, customers and suppliers. Automating the invoicing process also plays a large part in increasing the company’s efficiency.
