Natural Gas Handler Turns To Mobile App for Lean Manufacturing

By PRESS RELEASE — April 22, 2009

ORLANDO, Fla. --(Business Wire)--  Godlan, an Infor ERP SyteLine channel partner and the developer of the InSync Anywhere mobile application, announced that Valerus Compression Services continues to operate a lean manufacturing plant, integrate its existing infrastructure, and evaluate innovative ways to strengthen its competitive positioning.

Part of their recent technology roadmap includes the implementation of Infor ERP SyteLine software as well as deployment of the InSync Anywhere mobile application.

As the Infor Customer of the Year, Valerus is known for wringing out operational inefficiencies and having a fiercely competitive edge. In just four years, they have grown revenue to more than $550 million with 1200 employees.

Almost a year ago, Valerus deployed the InSync Anywhere mobile application to gain 24/7 wireless access to their SyteLine ERP data. Specifically, Valerus needed a way to collect and track labor remotely.

Jarod Hazlett, Valerus information technology manager, needed a streamlined way to collect labor transactions and track them against jobs, regardless of the language spoken by the geographically dispersed Valerus employees. Godlan tailored InSync Anywhere to meet their needs.

The director of information technology at Valerus, Buck Carraway, commented, "InSync Anywhere's front-end customization and the tight integration with Infor ERP SyteLine software has permitted us to move our labor tracking from the back office to the shop floor. This allows up-to-the-minute tracking of job labor cost and employee clock time."

Godlan is an approved Infor Channel Partner and has been serving Infor ERP SyteLine customers for more than fourteen years. The InSync Anywhere mobile application was developed by Godlan in 2005, and the product is in use across the United States.
