Infor Factory Track won the gold prize in Productivity and Training from Plant Engineering magazine. The 27th annual Product of the Year winners were announced at Plant Engineering and Control Engineering's 2015 Engineering Awards in Manufacturing dinner on March 23, 2015.
"[This] competition is a celebration of all that is new and innovative in product development," according to the magazine. Infor Factory Track was recognized for providing manufacturers a comprehensive solution that helps increase operational efficiency and improve visibility across the warehouse and shop floor.
"Manufacturers invest significant time and resources in planning solutions, such as their ERP, to help manage enterprise level business processes like financial management, order processing, and operational planning. However, there is an inherent gap between planning systems and their ability to execute when it comes to automation of shop floor and warehouse business processes," said Mark Humphlett, Infor Industry and Solution Strategy Director. "Infor Factory Track not only bridges this gap, but also helps organizations reduce cost, increase productivity and gain a competitive advantage."
