Infor what it does
What it does

      • Customer management—Efficiently manage the entire sales process, from customer lead origination and sales opportunity tracking, through converting prospects to customers, and placing the orders.
      • Role-based information—Make faster, more efficient, and informed decisions using dashboards that feature the actions and data most closely associated with specific, defined jobs, such as customer service, controller, and production planner.
      • Better user experiences—Get the information you need, when you need it, with user interface that can be easily customized to fit a particular industry, team, or user-without having to call on IT for help.
      • Mobile solution for warehouse logistics—Allow your warehouse personnel to connect with your ERP system with Infor Warehouse Mobility. Fully automate key business processes, cut costs while improving profits, and enhance your ERPfunctions with specialized modules, such as Pallet Management.
      • Microsoft-based system—Save time on implementation, customization, and training with familiar tools and common navigation.
      • Flexible deployment options—Benefit from multiple Infor CloudSuite deployment and buying options, which include on-premises software, hosted Software as a Service (SaaS), and subscription models (including optional application managed services).

What it does

With the full set of Infor M3 applications, you can monitor transactions throughout your organization (national or global), including manufacturing operations, supply chain activities, customer and supplier relationships, warehouse and distribution processes, and financial management. Standard ERP functions such as financials, supply chain, and sales management are uniquely tuned and adapted to the specific needs of your industry. Infor M3 delivers:

      • Support for market development, product and equipment sales, together with after-sales service processes to give you a 360° management view of your customers
      • Applications that control and optimize information, material, and financial flows throughout your organization, so you can manage multiple operational units even when they operate under different regulatory controls
      • A way to manage lot and serial number traceability, equipment configurations and product attributes, styles, colors, sizes, co-products, and byproducts in discrete, process, and mixed-mode manufacturing environments, so you can define all aspects of the products that you produce and distribute.
      • A system that captures, manages, controls, and analyzes your business operations, including local regulatory controls

Infor M3 consolidates all this information into one coherent view of operations, specific to the needs of your industry.
