CURT Manufacturing Selects IntelliChief LLC to Create and Customize Electronic Forms for their Infor XA ERP

IntelliChief implements Infor Formtastic™ for CURT Manufacturing, manufacturer and distributor of towing system products.


Mansfield, MA (August 15, 2011)— IntelliChief LLC announced today that they have been selected to provide CURT Manufacturing with new electronic forms software, Infor Formtastic, which will create unique, custom forms. IntelliChief solutions, which make up the Infor Document Management Suite, provide seamless integration with Infor XA, CURT Manufacturing’s ERP of choice. This was a key factor in the selection and installation of Infor Formtastic at CURT Manufacturing.

CURT Manufacturing Inc. is a manufacturer, importer and distributor of towing system products, Original Equipment Trailer and specialty equipment products, that combines competitive price, unsurpassed quality and unparalleled aesthetics.

Recently, CURT Manufacturing has formed partnerships with customers such as Amazon and other large eCommerce based companies.  In order to comply with the needs of these larger customers, it was necessary to design customized packing slips for each customer.  By demonstrating how Infor Formtastic integrates with CURT Manufacturing’s ERP, Infor XA, users at CURT Manufacturing have been able to save time, while also gaining the ability to create customized forms when necessary.  “The good thing is that our new process [using Infor Formtastic] of creating custom pack slips happens very quickly, to the point where our associates hit the enter button, walk to the printer, and out comes the pack slip, no standing around waiting,” said Tim Hau, Director of Information Technology at CURT Manufacturing.

After Infor Formtastic was suggested to CURT Manufacturing by one of their partners, management reviewed the product, noticing its superior functionality, integration with Infor XA, and value pricing before concluding that the Infor Formtastic product was the best fit. “With our ability to provide a simple mechanism to design and produce these custom forms along with the ‘off the shelf’ Infor XA integration we provide, set the Infor Formtastic product apart, surpassing all other competition for CURT Manufacturing,” said Michael R. Rooney, IntelliChief LLC Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

The functionality of Infor Formtastic is intelligent, yet logical and comprehensible for users. “During the initial training, it became obvious that Infor Formtastic’s functionality was clear and easy to understand, to the point where the entry level person who runs the development process was able to quickly pick up on it and take ownership to make it all happen,” said Tim Hau, Director of Information Technology at CURT Manufacturing.

CURT Manufacturing asked for IntelliChief LLC to design their product to match specific needs of their company. “To me, the very welcomed part of this effort was the fact that [our supplier] listened and came through with the functionality that we required when we needed it,” said Tim Hau, Director of Information Technology at CURT Manufacturing. “Any problems we encountered, IntelliChief was able to work through with us, which provided us with a great partnership.”
