Manufacturing organizations aim for operational excellence, but not all technology solutions can help them achieve this goal. Infor's industry-specific ERP solutions offer purpose-built capabilities that can drive profitable growth for manufacturers.
Achieving organizational goals through Infor’s industry ERP solutions
While there are many benefits of purpose-built manufacturing ERPs, specificity matters. Infor’s industry-specific ERP solutions have been helping manufacturers meet their goals for more than 30 years. Organizations are increasingly moving to the cloud to unlock new capabilities, and Infor’s industry CloudSuites help manufacturers around the world gain the visibility needed to quickly respond to customer, supplier, and regulatory needs—without requiring any complex customizations.
Here are five common manufacturing goals that Infor’s industry ERP solutions can help organizations achieve:
Infor's software solutions help manufacturers streamline their operations by providing enhanced visibility and efficiency throughout the entire system. By utilizing real-time analytics, manufacturers can make data-driven decisions that result in increased productivity and profitability.
With Infor's ERP for manufacturing, businesses can reduce operational complexity by leveraging shop floor automation and optimizing equipment lifecycles via enterprise asset management capabilities. Best practices and industry-specific processes have already been integrated, making it faster and simpler to manage operations. Agile deployment ensures that manufacturers can achieve scalability by adding capabilities and accelerating time to value.
By analyzing exceptions and managing them proactively, Infor's industry ERP solutions foster a culture of continuous improvement. Modern digital innovations around data and analytics—along with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML)—enable quick, data-driven decision-making across the manufacturing enterprise.
For example, manufacturers can more quickly respond and improve operational and productivity KPIs by analyzing order anomalies and forecasts as information comes in. Quick and easy access to data and analytics enables better decision-making across the manufacturing enterprise and aligns KPIs with departmental objectives.
