RAILPOOL GmbH: On track with Infor M3

2 min read Nov 13, 2018

Railpool is a leading renter of rail vehicles, offering expertise and full service from a single source. For its corporate software, Railpool relies on BE-terna and the ERP solution Infor M3 to map complex processes in the service and maintenance area as effectively as possible.

We expect Infor M3 to improve the efficiency of our process flows; our data will be more informative, and we will be able to respond to customer enquiries more effectively while carrying out repairs faster and more efficiently.

Torsten Lehnert, Managing Director

The deciding factors were the prototype for our service processes that BE-terna produced in the run-up to a presentation and the wealth of sectoral expertise held by the consultants and product specialists at BE-terna. On a visit to Eder Landmaschinenbau, a long-standing reference client of BE-terna, we gained a deeper understanding of how Infor M3 (service and rental) works in live operation and how best we could utilise the strengths of Infor M3, especially in the service area;

this guided the final decision of Torsten Lehnert, Managing Director of Railpool.

Clear signals point to the cloud

Infor M3 is operated as a managed service from the computer centre of BE-terna. As regards the cloud strategy of Railpool, the outsourcing of our software and hardware environment means maximum availability at a reasonable cost, believes Torsten Lehnert. Alongside Infor M3, BE-terna is introducing its Corporate Planner financial planning and consolidation software, thereby providing management teams with an effective business planning tool.
