Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that Infor LN and Infor SyteLine have been recognized as Leaders among enterprise resource planning applications (ERP) in Nucleus Research’s latest Technology Value Matrix for ERP. Additionally, Infor M3, which provides the core ERP for many of Infor’s vertical suites, was recognized as an Expert due to its deep industry-specific functionality. Nucleus evaluates solutions on usability and functionality, with all three Infor ERPs being recognized with stronger positions this year as a result of Infor’s continued focus on product investment.
Infor LN is a uniquely powerful ERP solution for complex manufacturing, optimized for distributed global operations and equipped with the tools to improve operational performance in manufacturing plants, across the supply chain, and throughout the aftermarket service business. Infor SyteLine is a robust solution specifically designed to help manufacturers improve productivity using manufacturing best practices and highly efficient process flows. And, for more than 30 years, Infor M3 has been helping companies in chemicals, distribution, equipment, fashion, food and beverage, and industrial manufacturing manage all the core and supporting processes inherent in their operations. These applications are supported by Infor’s powerful 10x technology, which allows organizations to use innovative technologies like social, mobile, and cloud within an existing environment, and dramatically increase the value of business applications.
“In the past 12 months, Infor LN has taken advantage of Infor’s investments in user experience, social collaboration and mobile applications, micro-vertical functionality, and embedded analytics to significantly improve its positioning in the Value Matrix,” said Rebecca Wettemann, vice president of research, Nucleus Research. “Infor SyteLine moves into the Leaders quadrant in this Matrix for the first time, largely based on its advances in usability driven by the latest SyteLine release adoption of the new SoHo experience and the use of Infor Ming.le with embedded social collaboration and analytics.”
Vendors are evaluated on their depth of functionality across the ERP categories and usability for all capabilities provided, including the level of integration between capabilities and the use of analytics to support decisions.
