Infor Enhances ERP Functionality for Discrete Manufacturers
Infor ERP LN Feature Pack 3 delivers new features and improvements to increase visibility across operations; eases point-to-point integration of additional ERP solutions
ATLANTA - January 10, 2007 - Infor, one of the largest global enterprise software providers, today announced new enhancements and improved functionality for Infor ERP LN that automates new business processes and provides greater visibility into manufacturing operations. Infor ERP LN, a fully-integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, provides business-specific functionality in a scalable, multi-language, open systems platform for manufacturers in industries such as industrial equipment, high-tech and electronics and metal fabrication.
With more than 25 customer-requested features included, Infor ERP LN Feature Pack 3 offers enhancements which enable discrete manufacturers to automate essential business processes in areas such as reverse logistics, tax reconciliation and multi-currency handling. New benefits include reporting and auditing for cycle counts and inventory adjustments; optimized invoice sorting and composing options; improved consolidation of multiple purchase requisitions in one order; and new reports on linked purchase and sales orders.
"Increasingly complex supply chains and demand for an accommodating ERP solution drives manufacturers of discrete products to seek out a technology partner who understands and can help solve their unique business challenges" said Mike Frichol, vice president of global industry and product marketing for Infor. "Infor ERP LN is a great example of how Infor enriches and evolves its solutions to address the ever-changing global marketplace. LN enables our customers to improve competitiveness, leverage their technology investment and reduce their total cost of ownership, today and well into the future."
Highlights of LN Feature Pack 3 include:
· Support for Hazardous Materials Regulations - Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) is a regulatory requirement for manufacturers to reduce the use of hazardous material in electrical components
· Manufacturing Part Numbering (MPN) - in high tech and electronics manufacturing, part numbering is used to differentiate between manufacturers for the same item
· Reverse Logistics - enables manufacturers to take material back, send temporary or permanent replacements, put unserviceable equipment on stock and refurbish individually or in batch, as per the demand, while keeping track of the life-cycle history and status
Customers will benefit from Infor ERP LN's inherent integration capabilities to additional business-specific solutions from Infor, further extending the value discrete manufactures receive from their IT investment. For example, LN customers can now deploy Infor Customer Relationship Management or Infor Warehouse Management Provia systems and have them tightly integrated with their ERP solution. With this integration, customers can define a business process event that will send the change to an ERP application or trigger an integration hub to update connected systems.
Infor delivers fully integrated enterprise solutions, as well as best-in-class standalone products that address the essential challenges its customers face in areas such as enterprise resource planning, supply chain planning and execution, customer and supplier relationship management, asset management, product lifecycle management, financial management, performance management and business intelligence. With more than 8,100 employees and offices in 100 countries, Infor provides enterprise solutions to more than 70,000 customers. For additional information, visit www.infor.com.
