Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

The company uses Infor ERP across the organization. With the company being in the manufacturing industry Infor ERP allows an efficient tracking of jobs from beginning to end. The software helps managers see the costs as each job moves from raw materials to finished goods. Infor ERP helps the accounting group understand costs and make recommendations as needed to other departments.
  • The accounting function of Infor ERP is designed very well and it is easy to use. From journal entries to generating a trial balance it only takes a few clicks to get what you need.
  • The job tracking process within Infor ERP is easy to understand. You can view the progress of each job a number of different ways and this helps users know how close each job is to the finish line at any time.
  • It is very easy to run month end processes that ensure all costs are accurate and then be ready for the next accounting period.
  • Infor ERP could improve its functionality with Excel. There are ways to export to Excel but certain screens do not have an export feature.
  • Infor ERP could be improved if they had more drill down options. Sometimes you have to go to a separate screen to get more detailed information.
  • Infor ERP could improve on its financial statement generation within the software.
It is well suited for accountants that know what information they need for accounting transactions and financial reports. It is well suited for manufacturing since the progress from raw materials to finished goods is easy to track and analyze. The software is well suited to handle individual jobs but then roll up reporting for families of products that are similar.

It is being used mostly by the back office. We run the financial suite which contains billing, order entry and warehousing. Basically we use it for the Order to Invoice process.
  • Ability to use processflow to streamline processes, I can't think of something that other ERPs don't do, Info just does it differently.
  • Security.
  • Code simplicity, Cobol is an ancient programming language, they need to move on with newer technologies.
  • On Infor 10+ they need to move away from SharePoint, it's not a user friendly framework, the portal wasn't neither.
The 7 rating is due to [our] relationship with Infor which is not that great. Customer service is ok, they don't know how to track licensing on their own system as they are using concurrent users and that really upsets some companies.

Infor ERP is used across our whole organization including our sales, purchasing, quality, finance, manufacturing and even our maintenance department. It truly provides our organization with great visibility and real-time data anytime, anywhere.
  • Infor ERP gives us greater financial visibility.
  • Inventory and cycle count accuracy are both strict TS metrics that are measured in my organization, Infor ERP enables us to know what we have and where we have it saving us valuable time and money. We are able to meet customer demand while keeping inventory down.
  • The automotive industry has very rigorous quality metrics and Infor ERP allows us to not only improve quality but also increase productivity and reliability.
  • Customization is one of Infor ERP's greatest attributes. Forms can easily be customized specific to the end-user's needs with the help of an ERP Application Developer.
  • Great customer support directly from Infor. Additionally, Infor ERP customers are always willing to help through user networks events.
  • Infor ERP is a great stand alone ERP system but add-on software packages are often needed to attain a greater level of detail. Our organization has recently teamed up with ScottTech to implement a warehouse management system called PickPro. PickPro will provide us with up-to-the-minute inventory information driven by the many transactions and movement of material that occurs throughout our processes.
  • The Human Resource module is not used by our organization as it lacks functionality.
  • Reports and background tasks/updates often need to be run after-hours as speed is a serious issue and can hinder other parallel users.
Our organization uses Infor ERP in a manufacturing environment but I have heard from multiple sources that it lacks functionality in the distribution environment.

I used Infor ERP for all financial modules within our company. It made transactions seamlessly meld together.
  • User Friendly
  • Modules integrate well
  • Sales and orders are handled well
  • Bill of materials seemed cumbersome to use
  • Connection with more users in our area
Infor ERP is well suited for a manufacturing environment where there are sales orders.

We use Infor ERP throughout the organization; from manufacturing to quality control, purchasing to accounting and reporting.
We need a robust business intelligence platform that we can structure in order to run several KPI's and dashboard reports by using the data we already have in place. Currently we use a third party program to put these figures together, however setup process was painful and see ongoing problems while we use it.
  • It is one of the simplest products on the market. Very user friendly and in my opinion not complicated and busy wit unnecessary tools.
  • We usually do a very short training for new hires and they pick it up promptly.
  • Data processing is fast and results are always on time.
  • Good amount of ready made reports for our needs.
  • You need an IT person in order to customize reports, overcome system locks, etc. But, usually having an IT guy in house is a good thing as well.
  • There isn't auto lock future that would sign put users if they don't use the program for extended time.
  • Missing auto warning messages when you're about to run a big amount of data.
  • A continuous improvement (Lean) section with employee suggestions (ideas) ability would be great.
  • Updates for latest technological improvements usually come late.
When properly set up, existing financial reports work very well. Sometimes you need to customize these reports to meet your needs.
Inventory control is a breeze and makes you feel comfortable with Infor ERP. Again, when properly set up it is capable of giving the appropriate reports with several details without any hiccups.
We always go thru our own IT team first. However, when they don't have the answer Infor support is always ready to resolve any question you would be asking, and they always get back to you promptly.

Infor ERP is used within some of our managed facilities to cut costs and provide exceptional planning capabilities. This allows for very high efficiency with a mostly temp workforce. It allows us to be price competitive in operations where we would not otherwise be.
  • Customization, Customization, Customization. If you need a form to do something, you can modify it yourself with a bit of .net experience.
  • Intuitive. The flow of the application just makes sense, when you're stuck, help is available for just about any field with the click of a mouse.
  • Speed, sometimes the application can lag a bit. Although, this is to be expected with SaaS applications sometimes.
The solution is highly suited to any organization that needs powerful planning, customization and a low cost of operation. Most ERP solutions do the same things the same way. The key is finding the one that can keep you competitive through customization for specific business needs and a price point better than others.

accounting and warehouse
  • Automated activities/workflow
  • Easy for all users to access information when security allowed
  • Reduced reliance on papaer
  • Perhaps some more functionality/ease of use integrating with shipping software
The more complicated/complex the distributor's business requirements are, the better suited Infor is.

We use this ERP system throughout the organization from Finance to Sales to Procurement to Customer Support.
  • This is a manufacturing based ERP system. If you are in manufacturing it could be a great tool for you
  • Work orders and Job costing work well
  • Engineering Masters and Bills of Material
  • Purchase Order Entry is antiquated. Need to pull demand through Material Planning window, one demand at a time.
Ask during the selection process just how customizable the software is and how robust the support is.
