F9 Case Studies
Hisco, a leading distributor of electronic and industrial materials, found fast ROI at lowest cost with Infor F9. Based in Houston, TX, the employee-owned company replaced the complex and labor-intensive SAP financial reporting application with Infor F9, and in doing so gained the ability to create a board of directors report template, financial statements, month-end financial reports, and ad hoc reports in very little time with minimal effort and no programming.
Avedis Zildjian, whose products are used by acclaimed musicians worldwide, stays competitive by managing costs. F9 is a partner in that effort by helping them provide better data faster to the people who need it. That’s especially important today as metal prices soar and competition increases in the music industry. F9 links general ledger data from Infor10 ERP Business (SyteLine), Zildjian’s ERP system, to Microsoft Excel for fast, flexible reports that are “quick gets” for company executives..
F9 is an essential part of KSL Resorts’ culture. The high-end resort management firm founded in 1992 has used F9 for 15 years, depending on it to provide clear visibility for prudent financial management. The company initially chose F9 for its reporting and budget writeback capabilities, but quickly learned it was able to handle much more, such as consolidations, balance sheet account reconciliations, various ad hoc reports, and monthly forecasting.
