Draper Knitting Company specializes in knitted high pile, jersey, double knits, napped fleece, single sided terry and nonwoven fabrics for fashion, performance, industrial and safety applications.
The Copley Consulting Group worked closely with Draper back in 2012 to implement Infor SyteLine ERP for their manufacturing company, located in Canton, MA. Draper, having successfully run their business on Infor SyteLine for more than 10 years, decided to upgrade and move to Infor’s Cloudsuite Industrial (powered by SyteLine) multi-tenant cloud on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
“SyteLine has served us well and allowed us to provide exceptional service to our customers” stated Kristin Draper. “We wanted to take advantage of the latest release of SyteLine, and it seemed that moving to the cloud was the best option for us. Now we will always be on a current release without the need to upgrade again in the future”.
By completing the upgrade to take advantage of Infor’s latest technology, collaboration tools, robust features and security, the move to the cloud eliminates the need to maintain servers and perform backups/disaster recovery which greatly reduces operational costs.
“Our team was delighted to help Draper migrate to the cloud. The vision of the Draper team is to utilize technology to the best of their potential to decrease costs and continue to provide unmatched customer satisfaction” stated Holly Mason, Director of Sales at Copley. Holly added “This was a good move for them, and we are excited to continue our partnership, while helping them to continue utilizing all that the system is capable of”.
