Avaap, an Edison-based technology management and consulting firm, announced on Monday it has been selected to provide implementation services to Fort Garry Industries, a provider of fleet parts and services in Western Canada, as part of its digital transformation.

Fort Garry said it has begun a transformation program to modernize its processes and leverage data and analytics. It will be replacing its legacy system with Infor CloudSuite Distribution Enterprises built on the cloud ERP solution Infor M3.

“Our legacy solution served us well but was expensive to support and lacked some of the functionality we needed to drive transformation,” Matt Albus, director of information technology, said. “Avaap had an implementation plan and proven experience in our industry, including references who spoke to the ability to implement the solution. Additionally, our IT staff currently spends the majority of its time maintaining the system. Getting live on CloudSuite will allow the team instead to focus on building value, providing us with more time to build differentiation and greater competitive advantage so we can better serve our customers and suppliers. We are also taking advantage of the opportunity to look at our processes, see what works well, and make improvements where necessary. “

Fort Garry said it picked Infor based on its functionality, ability to meet business needs and improved user experience. It anticipates being live on Infor in early 2021.

Added Avaap Manufacturing and Distribution General Manager Robin Irvine, “Fort Garry Industries is never complacent in its approach, and that has resulted in a well-earned reputation that began more than 100 years ago. Investing in long-term, resilient, cloud-based infrastructure such as Infor- CloudSuite Distribution Enterprise will enable Fort Garry Industries to continue to thrive in the competitive future of the business landscape. We are excited for the partnership and contributing to the success of their transformation journey.”
