Kenandy ERP is a relatively new product to the very competitive marketplace of ERP for manufacturing. Having been founded only five years ago, Kenandy has quickly put itself in position for rapid growth, with Silicon Valley heavyweight Sandra Kurtzig as Founder, and huge investments from CRM giant Salesforce. Kenandy’s focus is creating a completely cloud-based ERP system, running natively on the Salesforce platform that is easy to use and flexible, with the goal of building a new ERP system that would eliminate the restrictions a traditional ERP places on a business.

In a recent webinar series, we were able to view a demo on Infor ERP for distribution. In a broader sense, the series as a whole served to teach us that companies who seek ERP for Distribution do so in large part because they find themselves in a unique segment of the supply chain. The industry faces many challenges when juggling the responsibilities of warehousing, AP, and both purchasing and sales, and these can intensify astronomically if a company is utilizing outdated technology. To demonstrate the enterprise solutions that can help mitigate these challenges, we recently invited three top wholesale distribution ERP vendors to a webinar series to showcase their software.

Our most recent vendor briefing with Microsoft on their Dynamics NAV ERP solution allowed us to get a comprehensive update on the new developments, enhancements, and future plans for the product. The representatives from Microsoft who joined us were: Jim Dreyfuss, Tom Taylor, Partner Technology Strategist, and David O’Bryan, Channel & Business Development Manager. We were also given the opportunity to learn about Microsoft’s new small business solution, Madeira.http://ow.ly/fp2l3010CLY

Infor, the third largest ERP vendor with over $3 billion in annual revenue, 14,000 employees and over 73,000 customers in 200 countries, considers itself to be a startup company. Were you to only consider the company’s 30 years of experience and more than 6,000 customers in the distribution industry space deployed on their solutions, this notion would be rather far-fetched. However, as the company continues to operate and deploy new products for Infor Distribution ERP, they exhibit the flexibility and innovation of a new player in the market. http://ow.ly/iQiJ301fPIw
