5 reasons PLM for Process takes ERP to the next level


As robust and far-reaching as ERP solutions can be, it’s simply not feasible to think that they can be all-encompassing, providing complete business functionality for every aspect of an organization. The simple truth is that all ERP solutions have gaps in specialized areas such as product lifecycle management (PLM). Successful companies know that it’s best to close these gaps with focused, industry-specific solutions that address the unique aspects of their business. 

Process manufacturers such as food, beverage, chemicals, and life science manufacturers need PLM functionality that’s designed specifically for their needs. That is why Infor PLM for Process (Optiva®) was specially designed for process manufacturers to help them meet their product development challenges.
