Overall Satisfaction with Infor Adage

It is our Enterprise Resource Planning for the entire company. All companies business wide are using Infor Adage. The business problem it solves is that it runs our business. From inventory levels, to purchase orders, to taking orders, to customers it solves/manages everything. The only department that does use Infor Adage is Human Resources.
  • Stability, it reminds of a old COBOL system found in plants. It just runs and never stops.
  • Established, Infor Adage made an A grade platform.
  • Support, even though Infor Adage is not supporting it anymore, other companies are still developing add ons for it.
  • Looks, Infor Adage looks as old as it is, no way to sugar coat it.
  • Interface, same as looks. The interface is clunky compared to other ERPs.
  • Reporting, it comes with zero reports. You have to make them all from scratch.
  • It helped us run this long and remain profitable due to its accurate and reliable operation.
  • Negative is that since support ended we are stuck with a system that will become more antiquated over time.
  • We have been able to stretch functionality with great 3rd party add ons and enhancements.
  • ROI for Infor Adage was very short considering it's initial cost.
I was not here for when Adage was introduced but I can say having had experience with Oracle I can say that it can hold its own. When it gets down to, Adage is easier and cheaper to maintain then other ERP's. It can do the same tasks other ERP's can do and does them well.
If you are a manufacturer that has a ERP that is MUCH older then Infor Adage might be a good solution. It works, has add ons out there and it uses a SQL backend so your IT team, depending on the personnel, could churn out some reports quickly. I wouldn't recommend it as an upgrade but more as a replacement.
