Technology and automation leader in the paper, pulp and energy industries turns to the cloud to drive digital transformation 

NEW YORK – December 01, 2021 – Infor, the industry cloud company, today announced that Valmet, a leading global developer and supplier of technologies, automation and services for the pulp, paper and energy industries, has chosen Infor CloudSuite for industrial manufacturers as a next step in the company’s ERP enabled business transformation, which was started together with Infor in 2016.  

The target of the company’s ERP renewal is to help drive a global, digital transformation of Valmet’s operations. The next step in the journey together with Infor CloudSuite will involve a sophisticated project to move more than 10,000 users to the cloud in over 30 countries.

As part of the project, all current on-premises functionalities will be moved to Infor´s multi-tenant cloud, using extensibility capabilities to meet Valmet’s industry requirements whilst preserving the benefits of continuous upgrades. The solution will operate on Amazon Web Services (AWS), delivering global scale, performance, and security. 

Valmet operations span manufacturing, construction, software, and services. The implementation of Infor CloudSuite will not only help retain knowledge across a wide variety of activities based on unified processes throughout these operations, but also will help deliver consistent reporting and “one set of numbers” to help accelerate and improve decision-making. 

“The core objective for our original ERP renewal was to achieve operational excellence, execution and control over our complex project and contract management business,” said Janne Puustinen, CIO of Valmet. “We are now set to digitally transform and exploit cloud technology to realize improvements in productivity and create a platform for long-term innovation, efficiency and growth. As a trusted partner with a relationship spanning more than two decades, Infor was a natural candidate for consideration. However, it was only Infor’s current, deep commitment to our success, shown in the willingness to take responsibility for taking us to the cloud, which led to us choose them for this next phase.” 

“Building on the progress of our on-premises applications implementation in Valmet’s current ERP program, Infor will now take Valmet to the cloud,” said Joerg Jung, executive vice-president and international general manager at Infor. “Valmet has realized that Infor will offer the kind of commitment that sees us bringing their industry-specific requirements into Infor CloudSuite through our extensibility capabilities. We will both help protect the company’s existing ERP investment and support future growth.”
