growth plans, both domestically and overseas."

the future of our business and keep us one step ahead of our customers' needs."
Infor WMS is an advanced warehouse management system
that delivers much higher speed and accuracy. With embedded labour management
and 3D visual analysis to reduce complexity, it provides unprecedented
visibility into inventory, orders, equipment, and people to empower
organisations to enrich service levels and increase product velocity.
Our business has grown over the last 100 years, and we
are immensely proud of the supply chain network that has supported our growth
throughout this time. Our people and customers are at the heart of what we do
and our systems architecture is vital to ensure we're setting our business up

According to Grand View
Research, the global warehouse management systems market is
anticipated to reach US$8.1 billion by 2028, with a growing transition towards

time-consuming tasks such as maintenance, infrastructure upgrades and
maintenance which have to be carried out on on-premise software.
"Cloud-based solutions are transforming the
operations of businesses of all sizes. It's a much more efficient and scalable
way to manage and optimise operations, especially at a time when we're seeing
logistics systems under unprecedented pressure. The benefits of Infor's cloud-based
warehouse management system which offers complete transparency as well as
enabling end-to-end tracking are second to none," said Jarrod Kinchington,
managing director, Infor Australia & New Zealand. "Infor WMS is central to helping businesses
holistically manage distribution centres with the right tools to deliver
exceptional operational capabilities."
