Infor ERP Software Review

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend


Infor ERP software is carving out a niche for itself very fast in highly competitive and quickly changing ERP market. Selling amongst old giants like SAP and Oracle in the market and taking an edge over them in few industries speaks for its high quality solutions in a short duration. In manufacturing industry Infor has been able to persuade SAP user to migrate over.

Infor ERP software covers all the important aspects of any organization though it has few weaknesses but looking at the age of the ERP it appears that these issues will be sorted out pretty soon. Infor ERP like other ERP software's has special provisions for manufacturing industry including separate functions for lean, project based and process manufacturing. Service management module of Infor ERP software helps manufacturers in maintaining quality after sales service to improve credibility of their product in the market. Apart from this it also opens a new gate for revenue generation by means of after warranty service contracts, it can keep a track of revenue generation per technician which helps the manufacturer in keeping costs under control.

Manufacturing module helps companies in streamlining operations to deliver right products at right time with minimum logistics and warehouse cost. Shop floor data is captured in real time, strategic data is shared to improve performance. The transfer of information between suppliers and the company is improved for timely and economical supplies. For process manufacturing Infor ERP provides cost cutting measures by reduced order rates, improving product traceability and improves efficiency by removing manual processes.



Infor ERP module for project based manufacturing helps in improving bidding process and helps management in identifying profitable projects and areas. It also improves flexibility in project execution and monitor projects for better decision making, it improves communication to make timely changes to avoid over budget and project lagging behind than scheduled time.

Quality management improves collaboration amongst suppliers, company, customers and manages quality across all the plants and distribution points. Financial management of Infor ERP software can handle working with 30 different rules and regulations of different countries including currency and language. It can streamline financial processes and apply critical compliance regulations by auditing. It has capability to integrate financial activities taking place at different locations and divisions and consolidate them for managerial decisions. Increasing collaboration and responsiveness, reduced inventory, lower costs of good with higher operational margins and helping in expanding into new market segments are few features of wholesale and distribution module of Infor ERP which makes it a complete solution for all types of organizations.

Too much manufacturing centric facilities of Infor ERP are its biggest criticism. Modules are detailed and sometimes override other needs and requirement of the large organizations. Lack of options for mid size and small companies is another weakness of Infor ERP which may get removed in a short time. Implementation complexities are normally associated with all the ERP software's and Infor ERP is not different than others. With more varied clientele, facilities may become evenly distributed over other aspects of organizations too for better Infor ERP software.
