Infor releases new ERP application

Business application software firm Infor has released the next generation of its ERP application, Infor M3 which is focused on the specific needs of key vertical industries.

This is the first Infor ERP application of the new Infor 10x suite, and provides access to the latest Infor innovations in social, mobile, analytics and cloud technologies, and Infor plans to incorporate Infor Ming.le, Infor’s new platform for social collaboration, business process improvement, and contextual analytics.

Infor reckons distribution companies will see enhancements to delivery management through simplified movement of inventory between locations, pick corrections prior to pick list reports, new load building step for shipments, grouping of shipment packages to same distribution point, and greater control of output of pick lists. 

John Gledhill, global director, Infor M3 product management said: “The 500+ improvements in Infor M3 13.1, combined with the new accelerator pack concept, means that regardless of whether an organization makes and distributes trousers, tortellini or tractors, they can benefit from functionality specific to their business – quickly.”
