Infor CloudSuite Industrial is a cloud-based software solution that addresses the day-to-day business and operational tasks, plus the most complex industry issues driving manufacturers to upgrade capabilities and enhance their IT solutions.
"Manufacturers need solutions that can simplify complex supply chains and help them to deliver on time, every time, in order to get products to market faster and deliver on customer commitments,” said Mark Humphlett of Infor. “With Infor, organizations can personalize and extend their ERP system to meet their unique requirements, and easily deal with daily disruptions from employees, equipment, and suppliers because manufacturing best practices and process flows are embedded in the application.”
Industry issues, increasingly complex and urgent, are making it more critical that manufacturers leverage every advanced IT tool available. Infor CloudSuite Industrial is an advanced, highly flexible manufacturing ERP solution that gives companies the functionality to remain competitive. Infor CloudSuite Industrial gives manufacturers a solution that meets their business-specific needs with role-based information, a personalized user experience, familiar tools, common navigation, and last-mile industry capabilities built in, not bolted on.
Newer enhancements to CloudSuite Industrial manufacturing ERP include:
Infor Ming.le™ homepages
Role-based homepages consists of individual and unique widgets based on the user. Additional widgets can be added to tailor individual homepages. Many of the widgets drill back to specific Infor CloudSuite forms for more detailed information.
Infor Document Management
Infor Document Management (IDM) is a central repository where you can maintain your common business rules for creating and storing documents.
Advanced Planning and Scheduling
Enhanced Gantt chart includes predefined color themes, filters, quick launch buttons, visual status, drag-and-drop capabilities.
In addition to the multi-currency features already provided in Infor CloudSuite, you can now define multiple currencies for individual customers and vendors, to allow for more complex transaction currency exchange requirements, and so orders can be specified in a currency other than the customer default currency. Other features include bulk import of journal entries and a new form designed to allow you to import many entries at one time in a timely manner.
A new field has been added to the fixed assets form so a “parent/child” fixed asset relationship can be established.
Reporting on material transactions by document number. The document number field has been added to several forms, which allows a user to filter general ledger-posted transactions and other reports by this document number. Also, you can now display bill of materials (BOM) by revision, and users can filter by and view data for specific revisions.
Pick, Pack, Ship
Ability to ship noninventory items and generate shipments for picked items.
The scheduling functionality has been enhanced by replacing the calendar control used to display appointments with a more modern version. This new version supports the ability to run in both the Smart Client and Web Client. We did this by dividing the Service Schedules form into two new forms.
You can use the Calendar Scheduling form to view scheduled appointments in a date/time arrangement using day, week, or month views. Buttons that previously opened the Service Schedules form now open the Calendar Scheduling form.
You can also use the Queue Scheduling form to view appointments in a queue, allowing a dispatcher to arrange appointments in the order they should be performed. This form replaces the Daily Partner Queue and Open Partner Queue views that were previously available on the Service Schedules form.
Both forms still use the scheduling board and contain the same functionality with regard to selecting multiple views, profiles, color coding options, and the partner and task selection. We updated the date selection process on the scheduling board.
Starting with this release, we have begun the move to new reporting. We moved the optional Workbench Suite into the core Infor Mongoose framework delivery and created a new report form so all customers have access to the power of the Workbench Suite. We moved more than 30 reports to this new report form and more than 150 other reports into Data View reports. All these reports and new form reporting and data view reporting are part of the core solution enabling ease of personalization and upgrades.
