TietoEnator Corporation Press Release 1 March 2005 10.00 AM EET

Corenso United Oy Ltd selected TietoEnator to implement its Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution based on Microsoft's Business Solution Axapta. The solution will be implemented globally to Corenso's core manufacturing plants. Two mills in Sweden and one mill in the Netherlands are already using the system. Rollouts in Germany, UK, Finland, China and Spain will follow. After the rollouts, there will be about 200 simultaneous Axapta users in Corenso.

The new ERP solution will handle management of financials, fixed assets, electronic banking, logistics, planning, trade, warehousing, production, resources and reporting. It will enable real-time information flow supporting management and production units. Company-wide common business processes will contribute to more cost effective operations. The system's user interface supports several languages.

Corenso's manufacturing plants have a wide range of IT applications. Corenso wanted to improve their business processes by harmonizing IT systems group wide. Microsoft's Business Solution Axapta met well Corenso's requirements about wide functionally, flexibility and guaranteed local support.

"TietoEnator was the best partner to us because they have nearly 20 years experience in supplying IT solutions to core manufacturers, ability to implement a global project and strong commitment to Axapta. They are able to deliver the whole project from implementation to hosting", says Lauri Pajula, Group Controller at Corenso.

"We believe that in the future there will be a big growth potential in the corporate solutions area. The implementation of ERP solutions by global forest products companies creates opportunities for us. There is a lot of room for customer-specific integration that actually makes these package-based ERP products more usable and beneficial for the customer", says Sakari Ruotsalainen, Senior Vice President of TietoEnator Forest.
