Why This Turkish Yarn Maker Invested in Infor ERP

Turkish plastic recycler and yarn manufacturer GAMA Recycle Sustainable Technologies selected Infor‘s CloudSuite Industrial Enterprise platform to help accelerate value streams, reduce lead times, expand market share and increase transparency and productivity, the cloud software announced Thursday.

Based in Gaziantep, Turkey, GAMA recycles textile products and R-PET (polyethylene terephthalate) flakes in a complex production process. This complexity, combined with supply chain volatility following Brexit and the pandemic, led to the need for a modern enterprise resource planning (ERP) to support enhanced end-to-end collaboration across its supply chain.

Following a market evaluation, GAMA selected Infor CloudSuite Industrial Enterprise powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS), based on its simplified and preconfigured business processes, developed in line with industry-specific experience and expertise. The multi-tenant cloud application will be deployed by Infor partner Enigma Business Solutions and is set to go live in October.

“Increased demand for customized goods produced in a sustainable way has created a need for enhanced transparency across the whole supply chain,” said Zafer Kaplan, president of GAMA. “In responding to the needs of a rapidly changing and dispersed market, it is important that we foster collaboration across the entire value chain, from suppliers to customers. In doing this, we can be agile in assessing and addressing market changes, and deliver the product and service quality our customers expect.”

Kaplan said by leveraging the capabilities of Infor CloudSuite Industrial Enterprise, the company can connect all of processes digitally, which allows it to work more sustainably and effectively, and improve its product and service delivery model.

“Due to digital advancements and increasing consumer expectations in the market, our customers feel the need for more exceptional speed and adaptability in their business,” said Reslen Eroğlu, Enigma Business Solutions managing partner. “Building an organization that can respond rapidly and appropriately to new challenges and opportunities requires the right strategy and, crucially, the right digital infrastructure that can flex and scale proportionately, to capitalize on new market demands, and instill a culture of resilience.”
