Infor SCM Warehouse Management Business Edition Fulfills SMB Need for Quick Time to Value, Rich Functionality and Simplified Implementation
ATLANTA - June 3, 2008 - Infor today announced the availability of Infor SCM Warehouse Management Business Edition, a cost-effective software solution tailored to the requirements of small to midsized businesses (SMBs). Infor's Business Edition solutions address the complex business challenges facing SMBs while also meeting their IT departments' need for streamlined solutions that are easier to implement and maintain. Infor SCM Warehouse Management Business Edition is ideally suited for industries such as third-party logistics, manufacturing, distribution, retail, and other areas where SMBs seek to achieve world-class warehouse operations.
SMBs are confronted with many of the same fulfillment challenges as large enterprises, with a similar fundamental need to improve inventory accuracy, optimize work and task management, and maximize the utilization of warehouse space and personnel. SMBs typically face longer supply chains and erratic service levels, requiring a pressing need to anticipate changes outside the warehouse to better manage inbound deliveries and upstream changes in customer demand. Infor SCM Warehouse Management Business Edition provides SMBs with the extended warehouse management software functionality they need to implement best practices and process improvements, but with technology options designed for their smaller IT footprint.
"Infor's enterprise-class Warehouse Management solution is proven in some of the most demanding supply chain environments and we've leveraged this experience to create a business solution that is tailored to the needs of the growing SMB market," said John Pulling, senior director, Supply Chain Management, Infor. "Infor SCM Warehouse Management Business Edition gives SMBs a compelling combination of rich functionality and rapid implementation, which translates into a quicker time to benefit and a lower total cost of ownership."
Infor SCM Warehouse Management Business Edition is designed for rapid implementation and setup. The solution provides built-in best practices for key warehouse functions like storage (putaway) and allocation strategies, location definitions and area/zone definitions. Documentation includes a configuration tutorial and administrators guide, for in-house deployment by internal IT personnel. The solution simplifies master data setup through the import/export functions of Microsoft Excel.
In addition to the built-in capabilities of Infor SCM Warehouse Management Business Edition, customers can add advanced functionality to support their continued growth and evolving business objectives. The service-oriented architecture framework allows customers to add additional modules, such as RFID, Billing, and Labor Forecasting, on an agile and scalable technology foundation that supports future growth. Infor's extended Supply Chain Management portfolio, such as solutions for Network Design and Transportation Management, can help SMBs as their businesses grow beyond the midsized category into the ranks of the largest enterprises.
