Infor Distribution SX.e Technology

Finding an edge for your business is far from easy. Progress is often of the one-small-step variety rather than the giant leap that companies need to put some distance between themselves and the competition. It’s easy to wonder sometimes — is settling for less becoming the new normal? Not at Infor™. With Infor’s leading technology innovations and platform, Infor OS, at the core of all the latest releases of Infor’s proven industry CloudSuites, you can forget just getting by and start getting ahead.

  • Integrations — Purpose-built middleware that makes integrating your enterprise systems, both Infor and non-Infor, fast and easy. You can eliminate operational silos, scale up or down to meet changing business needs, reduce the burden on IT by putting business process changes into the hands of power users, and achieve unparalleled operational efficiency.
  • Collaboration — Comprehensive platform for social collaboration, business process improvement, and contextual analytics. Incorporating the most innovative social media concepts into a business environment, Infor OS lets you capture vital corporate knowledge and tie communications to business processes so you can work smarter and faster. From collaborating alongside core systems like ERP or financials to​“following” people and objects, you’ll solve problems and get work done in ways you never thought possible
  • Analytics — Transform data into a competitive advantage. You get industry-specific analytics, robust reporting capabilities, personalized dashboards, and workflows and alerts — all accessible from your mobile device with changes synced automatically to your desktop.
  • Mobility — Access systems and information anytime, anywhere, and extends the capabilities of your core organizational systems. You can unlock the power of existing enterprise solutions by seamlessly integrating mobile capabilities with your Infor applications and get the ability to easily build and deploy custom mobile apps to meet your specific needs.

No knowledge of complex source codes or programming languages is required.
