John Keells Logistics (Pvt) Ltd (JKLL) of Sri Lanka, which is a leading third-party logistics (3PL) services provider in the country, has reportedly partnered with Infor, which is a globally renowned industry-specific business cloud software provider, to implement a state-of-the-art Infor Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) solution.
According to reports, being one of the latest technological advancements in the 3PL industry, Infor WMS will enable JKLL to gain a substantial edge in comparison to the other offerings in the market through digitalization and optimization of its logistics value chain.
The Infor WMS and Infor Business Intelligence and Analytics solutions is a web-based solution using SaaS (software as a service) model making the implementation quick, robust, and flexible without requiring installation of the software to individual devices and will also offer enhanced visibility of operations, cost optimization, and increased productivity, resulting in improved profitability, a news report in the Daily News stated.
Demonstrating pioneering spirit in digitalization, JKLL will be implementing the complete Infor WMS solution online, the report further stated.
JKLL’s Chief Executive Officer Randula Chandrarathne commenting on the collaboration has been quoted as saying, “What sets Infor’s solution apart from other competing offerings is the company’s deep logistics expertise and industry-specific capabilities. These equip us to synergize 3PL-specific business functions with fully-fledged business intelligence platforms, all of which integrate seamlessly with our existing processes. With this solution, we can now automate previously labor-intensive and time-consuming processes, thereby improving productivity and optimizing costs. Simultaneously, this further strengthens visibility and control over our operations and service delivery as well.”
Fabio Tiviti, Vice President of Infor ASEAN has said, “Across today’s logistics landscape, having data-driven intelligence over one’s operations is increasingly crucial—especially in a market where supply chain disruptions, contingency planning and risk management now rank among the topmost challenges faced by 3PL services worldwide. We are proud to support John Keells Logistics’ transformation efforts.
Infor’s purpose-built, industry-specific solutions fine-tuned in the cloud will boost their ability to anticipate changes and make adjustments to market shifts, and help them stay ahead of the competition, beyond the pandemic.”
Sri Lanka’s private sector provides many business/investment opportunities given the expansion programme undertaken by many businesses. Sri Lanka’s geographical positioning in the Indian Ocean and the many trade agreements as well as trade concessions enjoyed by the country have made it a business hub in the South Asian region. Therefore foreign businesses/investors could confidently explore business opportunities in Sri Lanka and its private sector.
