Top reasons to migrate to Infor CloudSuite Financials and Supply Management
November 9, 2017
I’ve talked about healthcare organizations moving to the cloud in several blog posts, and that is certainly an important topic. Today I’d like to discuss why not only moving to the cloud is important, but how critical it is that you use our most current CloudSuite Financials and Supply Management solutions available today. While you may recognize these solutions by a variety of names, what I’m talking about is our most current end-to-end ERP business solution in the cloud (or on premise) that is built on Infor’s Java-based platform and provides a common UX, analytics, and complete integration across the operational platform. This solution includes a commitment to continuous innovation with twice yearly updates and improvements in functionality, integration and automation for all healthcare customers. So, if you are on an older version of financials or supply management, I’d like to outline what I view as the top four reasons to migrate to Infor CloudSuite Financials and Supply Management.

- If you are currently running Infor Financials and Supply Chain V.10 (or older), you should consider migrating to the latest release to keep your systems current, benefit from automated updates to get the latest releases immediately, improve disaster recovery with less potential downtime, improve performance with automated hardware scaling, and enjoy more automation and integrations for faster deployments.
- Take advantage of hundreds of new features: Hundreds of new features have been added to the financial and supply chain solutions to better support your current business needs. Here are few of them.
- A re-architected and redesigned General Ledger that offers new functionality that means you no longer are restricted to the traditional set of accounting attributes in your legacy systems.
- Accounts Payable Invoice Automation that helps speed invoice processing.
- Close and Reconciliation Management that helps facilitate faster close times and provides increased visibility to your close calendar.
