Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced that Michaels, one of North America's largest arts and crafts specialty retailers, plans to upgrade its current version of Infor Workforce Management (WFM), to take advantage of the enhanced mobile capabilities in the newest iteration for its more than 40,000 employees. Part of the Infor Human Capital Management (HCM) suite, Infor WFM supports organizations of all sizes to help meet the complex challenges of labor management by delivering tools that are designed to help customers adhere to their payroll practices, help increase labor cost visibility and control, and help improve compliance.

With the Infor WFM workforce mobility module, organizations can extend the reach of their workforce management solution by giving employees and managers the ability to perform workforce-related tasks using mobile devices.
