Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced strong momentum behind sales of Infor Distribution FACTS, a comprehensive solution designed to help distributors quickly respond to changes to satisfy customers and meet increasing demand.  Dozens of industry-leading companies including Air-Side Equipment, Inc., H & V Sales, Inc., George J. Howe Company, JRD Sales and Service, Inc., and Keystone Electrical Supply have recently selected the solution to join more than 2,000 distributors across North America that are currently using or implementing Infor Distribution FACTS.

"Customers are drawn to Infor Distribution products because they provide the functionality and flexibility that meet the current market challenges and shifting distribution models," said Lisa Russell, industry strategy director, Distribution, Infor. "By delivering supply chain, performance and financial management capabilities within a unified solution, Infor Distribution FACTS equips users with the tools they need to streamline their core business processes."

Infor Distribution FACTS helps businesses eliminate redundant and manual processes to enable increased efficiency and speed.  By maximizing resources and inventory levels, the solution allows distributors to do more with less in order to cut costs and grow revenue. Infor Distribution FACTS manages everything from supply chain and warehousing, to financials and sales analytics, by promoting enhanced service levels and improved decision-making.

"We rely on technology like Infor Distribution FACTS to support our aggressive growth plans and help us achieve company goals," said Jill Vass, CEO of Rice Industries.  "We are looking forward to the 7.8 release and anticipate that it will reduce the time our purchasing manager spends working in the system by approximately 20 hours per week, allowing her to focus on more value-add tasks for the business."

Scheduled for release in March 2013, Infor Distribution FACTS 7.8 planned improvements include best practices such as flexible inventory management concepts and automated controls to optimize inventory efficiency.  Additionally, the Service and Repair and Customer Returns modules will have an updated look-and-feel to deliver consistency with Infor's new graphical user interface standard.
