Infor ERP Visual continues strong rate of adoption among small to medium-sized manufacturers

28 June 2007

Discrete manufacturers win with Infor ERP Visual due to rapid implementation, business specific functionality and ease of use.
Infor recently announced continued strong adoption of its Infor ERP Visual solution, with over 150 new customers added during the fiscal year, and more than 600 existing customers adding additional licenses, users or new modules. With an installation base of over 4000 manufacturers around the world, Visual is the ERP solution of choice for enterprising small to medium-sized manufacturers who seek rapid implementation, business specific functionality and ease of use in a single package.
Visual is particularly suited for high-growth, mixed-mode manufacturers who need a modular solution, where new capabilities can be added as their business grows. This approach supports rapid implementation time, usually three to six months, and rapid return on investment since customers only buy and install the components they need. Visual’s modular capabilities include solutions for advanced planning and scheduling, quality management, customer relationship management, time and attendance, business intelligence and warehouse management.
Underlying Visual’s powerful ability to support mixed mode manufacturing is the innovative, easy to use interface from where the solution takes its name. The Visual Manufacturing Window allows the user to graphically build queries, identify the actions to complete a work order, and intuitively see problems or steps in the process that are outstanding. The interface is designed for multitaskers, a common persona at organisations where users may have multiple responsibilities. Visual also has productivity features like Microsoft Outlook Task Integration and customisable user interfaces.
In addition to small to medium-sized companies, Visual is also deployed at the manufacturing plants and divisions of some of the world’s largest corporations. These organisations also turn to Visual for business specific capabilities, such as lean manufacturing or support for unique shop floor issues, which the corporate applications often cannot perform without the high costs of customisation.
“There are over 15 years of manufacturing functionality and best practices built into the Visual solution, leading to a low total cost of ownership,” said Gavin Kilfoil, regional manager, sub-Saharan Africa, Infor. “That experience and value, together with the unequalled domain expertise of our channel partners, is a key reason why Visual continues to have high rates of adoption among enterprising companies of all sizes.”
Infor is distributed in sub-Saharan Africa by EOH company, Softworx.
