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 sustainable 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. That this should be a cloud solution was a given. Infor's industry cloud solution impressed with its baked-in food and beverage wholesale capabilities and future-proof innovations, helping Bio Partner to outpace the competition.  

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. Thanks to 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.

"Infor provided us with the perfect solution for our needs. The industry-specific out-of-the-box features not only convinced us in theory, but also deliver on their promise in practice," says Hans-Ruedi Meyer, head of ICT at Bio Partner Schweiz AG. "We work more efficiently and can deploy our specialists in a more targeted manner than before. As we are affected by the shortage of skilled workers, this is crucial to make the best use of our resources."

"With Infor CloudSuite Food & Beverage, we offer companies like Bio Partner the opportunity to implement a single solution that covers all their needs. They also benefit from best practices of other customers through the multi-tenant architecture," said Bernhard von Berg, account manager at Infor. "We have already been able to implement various use cases at Bio Partner, and we are constantly working with the company to further exploit the potential of the Infor solution."
