The Infor Distribution difference

Distributors are being challenged to increase sales by expanding beyond their traditional roles. They now need to incorporate manufacturing, target consumers in a retail environment, and manage customer inventory like a 3PL provider. Distributors also continue to explore ways to drive organic growth by expanding the geography of their service areas, introducing new product lines, and via mergers and acquisitions. And the expectation to deliver exceptional service is higher than ever.

To meet these evolving demands, Infor delivers comprehensive and flexible solutions that optimize every facet of your operation enabling you to manage transactions with unparalleled visibility across the enterprise and make smarter and faster decisions.

More than 6,000 distributors use Infor solutions and benefit from our 30 years of experience solving the specific business challenges of the wholesale distribution industry.

Infor is committed to developing innovative solutions that are changing the way distributors work to ensure you are better able to sell to, buy from, and employ the next generation.
