Danube Home boosts warehouse efficiency with WMS from Infor
Danube Home has invested in Infor SCE - a WMS (warehouse management system) - and its Infor OS (operating services platform) to accelerate its digital transformation as the company expands across the region.
The Dubai-based retailer sells furniture products, garden furniture, decorative ranges, furnishings, homewares, chandeliers, electrical goods & accessories, ceramics and an entire home range via its Danube Home showrooms.
In an effort to enhance its supply chain, Danube Home chose Infor SCE to increase efficiency, throughput, and service levels of its operations– reducing costs and providing greater visibility for both clients and staff.
“Ultimately, increased customer satisfaction is what we are looking to achieve. From a management perspective, we have also invested in a dedicated resource to oversee fulfilment in our Danube Home showrooms,” says Sachin Khosla, head of logistics at Danube Home.
“With a strong track record and reputation in the Middle East and around the globe, Infor was the right fit for us. Its warehouse management system required no customisation and could easily be configured to our needs,” he added.

“The year ahead will be a busy one for Danube Home, with plans to increase our presence across India and the Arabian Gulf over the next 12 months, so it was especially important to select the most capable partner possible,” said Khosla.
This is the first deal between the companies and will see Infor support Danube’s plan for rapid regional expansion. Expected to go live in the United Arab Emirates in August, Infor’s technologies will be rolled out to India, Kuwait, Bahrain, and Oman.
Infor will provide Infor SCE Warehouse Management together with its Infor OS (operating services platform) which includes advanced capabilities for business intelligence; document management; and process integration.
In addition, Infor OS incorporates Infor’s advanced middleware platform, ION, and Infor Ming.le, a centralised space for collaboration, business process improvement, and contextual analytics.
Danube wanted to pool all essential company data together to integrate strategic planning into an optimized distribution network.
Danube will use Infor SCE to analyse information from across its subsidiaries to improve the use of assets across its network – inventory, space, and labour. Plus, with Infor SCE, the company can create, communicate, execute, monitor, and manage strategic business plans.
