Process Integration

For discrete manufacturers, this means knowing the status of all your orders, your production schedule and the fastest, most economical supply chain path to your customer.  Your in-house business processes and supply chain operations should be integrated enough to manage critical business transactions, including everything from customer orders to deliveries, planning to production and raw materials to finished products, as well as everything in between.

By implementing Infor ERP, companies have the ability to automate and integrate their internal and external processes to ensure “one version of the truth,” no matter where the information is gathered and stored.  Working from the same database of information, companies are able to make better and more efficient business decisions, collaborate more effectively, and shorten time to market and improve productivity.

Actionable Intelligence Capabilities

You have tons of valuable information, but what do you do with it and what does it mean?  Detailed analytics and rapid report availability is key.  The easier it is for executives and everyday users to transform their data into actionable intelligence and insight, the easier it is to manage day-to-day business processes.

Infor ERP offers actionable intelligence tools to understand what is happening in the business right now and how you can move forward.  It is one-step further than what has been called business intelligence, which is just the culmination of the data.  Many organizations are now thinking about how to make the leap from spreadsheet –based data and business intelligence to more real-time, dashboard-based analytics environment.  Intelligence and data that are actionable drive better business decisions to improve customer service, profitability and growth.
