May 2008 – ITW Heartland announces the successful implementation of Infor’s Visual Enterprise and Visual Global Financials. The new system replaces multiple and disparate applications, therein reducing overhead costs while improving real-time data collection, information accuracy, quality, and order production.
“We can serve our customers more efficiently by having real-time data in a single system,” says Todd Wentworth, ITW Heartland Assistant Controller. “This is a complete and scalable ERP solution with additional modules that align with our IT expansion plans.”
The system is supported by Infor, one of the world’s largest business software companies. The Global Financial applications are built on a strong foundation of controls that meet the requirements of Sarbanes-Oxley and ISO standards, giving ITW customers great confidence in the data and systems that are used to serve them.
