Established in 1972, Morland is a leading supplier of wood-based ‘fit-out’ materials to industries across the United Kingdom and Europe. Their integrated manufacturing divisions produce interior panels, architectural profiles, and a range of ‘pre-fit’ products designed to reduce the need for on-site finishing. For over forty years their policy of investment in equipment, logistics, and staff have been targeted at continuously improving efficiency and quality across all sectors. Today, Morland’s supply chain runs worldwide and imports quality materials from long-term suppliers across the globe. This makes them extremely diligent in working out the financial and economic aspects of importing wood for their top-quality products.
In the quest to digitalize their ERP (Enterprise resource planning) system, Morland opted for Alumio’s iPaaS(integration platform as a service) to help create a futureproof IT landscape. Morland’s products are widely used in recreational vehicles, residential housing, hotels, marine fit-outs, and public sector projects, including hospitals and military accommodations, and to top this is the wood being imported by themselves. It was thus of paramount importance to Morland that everything in terms of finance was documented and well-structured, to ensure they didn’t end up at a financial loss while continuing to deliver the best quality products. By creating a dynamic overview of all financial aspects within the company, Morland would be self-assured that their customers receive the best services at prices that didn’t put them at a financial loss.
Using Alumio’s iPaaS to connect Morland’s ERP(Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations) to Adobe Magento, Morland was able to modernize and automate their “IT Integration Landscape”. The integration now helps predict future results and tracks real-time performances, which in turn creates data-driven decisions to accelerate the continuous growth of their business. By integrating Dynamics 365 FO to the e-commerce platform of Adobe Magento, Morland has essentially eliminated data silos and now benefits from a wide array of e-commerce web services that helped kickstart their project. With Alumio’s iPaaS, Morland can now manage all data integrations from one central hub and freely add or remove digital software as per business requirements. This allows the company to create impactful strategies that bring them closer to their worldwide customers, in an increasingly digital manner.
