Insula heads for the Cloud with ERP solution

24 February 2023

Insula, a Nordic seafood group, has implemented Infor CloudSuite Food & Beverage. The multi-tenant cloud solution powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) is said to have reduced operating costs by 10%.

Since 2018, Insula has had an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution from Infor, M3 Food & Beverage, which has pre-configured settings dedicated to the food industry.
“For Insula, it has always been a principle to stick to the standard in the solution and not resort to customisation”, said Insula’s ERP manager Ronny Johnsen. If the ERP system was customised, Insula would have had greater challenges migrating to a standard cloud solution.
“An agreement with Infor partner, Elvenite was signed in May 2021 and the cloud solution was put into use on in October of the same year. Operating costs have been reduced by 10% when compared to the on-premise solution and the entire cloud lift was carried out remotely due to Covid, so this has literally been a digital project,” said Line Fjeldstad, CIO at Insula.
“We now have lower ongoing operating costs despite an almost 50% increase in the number of users. In addition, the upgrade costs are virtually eliminated compared to the on-premises version. Furthermore, stability and security are better in the cloud solution, and in total this has been important for the decision to move the ERP solution to the cloud,” said Fjeldstad.
Insula had a clear strategy to do the migration to the cloud in a ‘one to one’ lift in order not to make the work more extensive than necessary and to stay on schedule.
“This means that we chose not to make changes to our business processes, the main goal of the promise was a stable operation, increased security, reduced costs and ongoing access to new functionality,” continued Fjeldstad.
The ERP system ensures information from the entire value chain, from the producer, processing and up to the store. This helps to reduce waste, improves production planning and documentation throughout the traceability chain.
