Enterprise Resource Planning software is one of the important applications widely used in offices. Oracle E-Business Suite (Oracle ERP) is also among the popular ERP applications together with SAP. Recently though I’ve encountered a new ERP application from Infor. The Chief Executive Officer of Infor is Oracle’s Charles Phillips who was the former President of Oracle Corporation and a member of its Board of Directors. It’s interesting that Infor which is relatively new to the market have progressed rapidly in the recent years.
I’ve been using Oracle ERP E-Business Suite for several years already. There is this Java Run time application and a self-service web application which opens via the internet browser. It’s a problem we encounter with using the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) based application as it does not run on newer such as Windows 7 64 bit operating systems. Also some people are using portable devices already like tablets or iPads which does not support the Oracle Forms which are Java-based applications. The self-service web applications are working fine, but not the full feature is available.
Thus, we’ve looked for some alternative ERP which could adapt to the new technology. The one which caught our attention is Infor which introduces modern look and feel with innovation. There is a common visual interface whether you are using desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone, offering a seamless experience.
In summary Infor ERP Advantage:
Streamline operations and get company-wide visibility.
Get access to information anytime, anywhere to improve decision making and speed response times.
Easily adapt to new manufacturing methods, changing customer requirements, and evolving business strategies.
Get new products to market more quickly and profitably.
Optimize inventory and production resources to increase efficiency.
Improve quality and customer satisfaction.
