NEW YORK - May 10, 2017
Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced the availability of a standard Infor ION® integration between Infor M3 and GT Nexus Order Collaboration. This integration will better support fashion and distribution companies in sourcing discrete products by providing more visibility and a single version of purchase order information with suppliers.
Infor M3 is an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution that offers ultimate flexibility in operations, technology, and scale. As a multi-site, multi-country, and multi-company solution, Infor M3 empowers organizations to adapt to changing business needs and provides flexibility in managing mixed-mode and complex environments, with the agility to make quick adjustments at any time. GT Nexus is a supply chain network platform that leading companies use to orchestrate their supply chains. GT Nexus connects companies to their supply chain partners (suppliers, manufacturers, 3PLs, carriers, etc.) to enable visibility, collaboration, and automated execution of supply chain processes. GT Nexus Order Collaboration is ideal for companies that operate globally or internationally, and are looking to better align with their suppliers. By integrating GT Nexus Order Collaboration with Infor M3, organizations can instantly connect with suppliers to share, confirm, and negotiate purchase orders. In addition, users can track the status of their suppliers' negotiations and confirmations directly on the Infor M3 order screen. By electronically sharing, confirming, and negotiating purchase orders, companies have the tools to reduce time-to-market and the risk of errors.
"Organizations that closely work with their suppliers, such as fashion brands and retailers, often rely on e-mail, phone calls, spreadsheets passed back and forth, to share and negotiate on purchase orders, costing time and effort, and making it very difficult to keep track of changes. In addition, manual processes add latency to the order confirmation and negotiation process, resulting in the ERP being out of sync with the actual terms being executed by the supplier," said Andrew Dalziel, senior director, industry and solution strategy, Infor. "With this new integration, users are instantly connected and can streamline the process of sharing information - which is critical in such a competitive business environment. Our organization is committed to supporting value chain visibility and collaboration."
