Infor has been named a Leader in the Nucleus Research Control Tower Technology Value Matrix 2020, recognized particularly for the enhanced intelligent sensing and response capabilities of its Infor Nexus solution.
In this annual report, Nucleus Research examined all vendor solutions in the control tower market landscape, and named Infor a Leader, the highest rank for usability and functionality.
Nucleus Research is a global provider of technology research and advisory services. In this year’s Control Tower Value Matrix, its analysts noted: “The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need for businesses to implement resilience and agility into their supply chain processes. Decision makers rely on control towers to predict delays and mitigate the downstream effects of external disruptions.”
Infor Nexus is the world’s leading network for multi-enterprise supply chain orchestration. The network connects businesses to their entire supply chain—from suppliers and manufacturers, to brokers, 3PLs, and banks—paving the way for enhanced supply chain visibility, collaboration, and predictive intelligence. Infor Nexus fuses physical and financial supply chain processes in a unified, cloud-based platform.
Nucleus noted that since last year’s Control Tower Value Matrix, “Infor has enhanced both its intelligent sensing and response capabilities. Infor has also expanded it logistics management functionality by implementing geofencing and granular cargo tracking capabilities coupled with temperature, separation and physical impact monitoring functions. On the response side, Infor has strengthened its decision support capabilities by providing enhanced in-context data and visualizations on customer orders and status of supply throughout the network. Inventory simulation and additional direct resolution paths with multi-party collaboration enable organizations to identify corrective actions and avoid problems including late deliveries and shortages.” Nucleus also noted a rise in customer satisfaction with the Nexus Network and Nexus Platform.
“Being elevated to the top Leader quadrant is terrific recognition of our newly enhanced Infor Nexus capabilities, and our ongoing commitment to continuous innovation and ease of use,” said Heidi Benko, Infor VP of product management. “Especially now, in the time of COVID, we are dedicated to ensuring our customers get all the visibility, agility and resiliency they need to help keep their operations moving smoothly and their own customers satisfied.”
