A new release of Infor Distribution FACTS brings enhanced functionality built on industry best practices for small to mid-sized distributors.
Infor FACTS is designed to help distributors reduce inventory costs while simultaneously improving customer service.
"The functionality enhancements delivered in Infor FACTS 7.9 are designed give distributors the flexibility and out-of-the-box process automation they need to speed operations and generate savings in areas such as inventory and credit card processing," said Lisa Russell, Infor Distribution strategy director.
- Key enhancements
A new Alert Control Center, which automatically creates and displays a user-specific checklist of action items. By consolidating tasks into a single, easily accessible location, users get a much-needed level of visibility to prioritize more pressing assignments, ensuring that urgent tasks are completed quickly and efficiently.
- Integration directly with CenPOS, a payment processing application that allows distributors to accept a wider range of payment methods.
- Decision-makers can now set minimum order quantities for specific warehouses or individual products. This option prevents users from entering sales orders that do not meet volume guidelines from suppliers and can be used to direct employees to pull inventory from a particular location.
- More advanced lead time functionality for seasonal items. This gives distributors the agility to better accommodate fluctuating demand and helps to prevent businesses from stocking excess inventory.
