Infor releases upgraded version of ERP software for manufacturing
Cloud software provider Infor has released an updated version of its Infor CloudSuite Industrial Enterprise software for the manufacturing industry.
Infor CloudSuite Industrial ERP allows manufacturing companies to access applications in the cloud, such as global finance, project management, customer relationship management, and supply chain visibility.
The secure software suite aims to help manufacturing companies maintain visibility with suppliers, products, and customer accounts.
The ERP solution joins Infor’s current offerings on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and includes several new features for storing and sharing businesses documents, managing finances, and access to analytics tools. For larger organizations, asset management features have been developed to manage and improve plant and equipment performance, down time, and energy waste.
The new upgrade makes managing IT infrastructure much simpler, said Larry Korak, industry and solution strategy director of Industrial Manufacturing at Infor, so businesses can keep up with different changes in the global market.

“With Infor CloudSuite, organizations can modernize operations quickly, and with a lower total cost of ownership, and achieve true business agility,” he said.
The new upgraded service is available on a flexible subscription model for manufacturers, which Infor says will reduce costs for the business and improve compliance and productivity.
A host of upgrades
While CloudSuite Industrial ERP is targeted at the manufacturing industry, the company also services clients in the aerospace, retail, and government sectors among others.
The new edition of CloudSuite Industrial ERP is one of the latest in a series of upgrades that Infor has been making to its software offerings of late. The company most recently released an enhanced version of its aerospace and defense CloudSuite software as well as announcing new partnerships to improve its enterprise asset management network.
These upgrades to their software solutions will improve performance and maximize the IT budgets of clients, said industry director, Edward Talerico.
