Infor M3 is designed for medium to large global manufacturers, distributors, and after-sales service providers—delivering flexibility to manage mixed-mode and complex value chains. M3 is designed with industry-specific functionality and flexible deployment options, and presents a multi-company, multi-country, and multi-site enterprise resource planning (ERP) cloud solution platform.
M3 was originally developed by Intentia, which merged with Lawson (2005), and which in turn was acquired by Infor (2011).
- Its easy to use[.]
- No need for customization required[.]
- Vast majority of support[.]
- Its not easy to customize if you have that need.
- It can be accessed from home.
- We can view paychecks.
- It can take too long to log in from home.
- I cannot print paychecks / W-2 from outside work.
- It is excellent when you are at work.
- If not at work - you can only view. I cannot access it from the phone.
- Web-based and rarely crashes.
- Capable of producing a lot of different report styles.
- Facilitates information sharing across different departments.
- Not intuitive at all, difficult to learn.
- System is archaic, seems to be largely unchanged since the early 2000's.
- Reports are all in PDF form, which for financial reporting purposes is tedious to turn back into Excel sheets.
It meets the Financial Accounting requirements of our organization with a lower cost of ownership. The application has been largely customized to suit our requirements. The reporting capabilities are met by taking the data to a separate Data Warehouse and reports are built on top of it with a near real-time feed from ERP.
- Fixed asset accounting.
- Activity-based accounting.
- Fiscal ledger and management ledger reporting.
- Shared cost allocations.
- Reporting capabilities with mobility options.
- Flexibility to multiple hierarchical reporting.
Infor is not substantially investing in upgrading Lawson to meet the next generation reporting needs including automation, mobility, and integration to consolidation.
- Very stable product. Some of its weaknesses are also its strengths. The lack of web services seems to actually increase stability.
- No software vendor in this space is perfect. Lawson does perform as advertised.
- Again, a weakness of this (limited functionality) is a hidden strength as well. In software there is a complexity/feature tradeoff. Where Lawson lacks in features, it does give you a more simple setup for your organization.
- Features. Would love to see better delivery of new regulatory reporting, for example the 1095C for benefits.
- I haven't seen many advancements in the core product in quite awhile. Would like to see a refreshed look.
- Like all software vendors, there is a current push to go cloud-based, which I find nauseating. This is not unique to Lawson... but neither are they exempt from it.
