With its roots and exclusive focus on manufacturing, Infor maintains a unique position in the market because of the following differentiators:

Unlike other ERP systems designed to be diverse for various industries, Infor takes a unique approach for their products. Their products provide deep industry functionality out-of-the-box for micro-industries such as automotive, electronics manufacturing, building materials, and packaging manufacturers.


Imagine collaborating with your colleagues on a Facebook-like platform as your order moves from your sales order to manufacturing and then to finance while also responding to customer inquiries through the same platform. All Infor products provide the “glue” called Ming.le, which takes collaboration to a whole new level.


Complying with specific industry vertical processes requires flexibility in a platform so that you can quickly build these reporting workflows for your unique requirements. Infor’s workflow engine, event management, and document management module help companies build these workflows rapidly.


Infor CSI bundles Birst as part of product suite. Other ERP products would require you to purchase the license of similar products such as Power BI or Tableau separately. Not only do you get two products for the price of one, but you can also build interactive dashboards and reports using it.


Manufacturers with large shop-floors with heavy equipment require unique needs when it comes to their scheduling. The machines could have very different needs than tooling components. The advanced planning and scheduling engine bundled with Infor CloudSuite supports these scenarios out-of-the-box.


With enterprise-grade functionality for Quality Control, Regulatory Compliance, and Document Management as part of the product Suite, Infor CloudSuite Industrial (Syteline) provides deeply rich manufacturing features out-of-the-box, for which other ERP systems would require add-ons.


Infor CloudSuite product architecture supports the needs of a complex enterprise, whether you use Infor or non-Infor products. Infor products come bundled with an enterprise federation platform that can easily integrate all your products through one platform and allow you to access them all through the same app switcher.


Deep industry functionality reduces the need for building custom functionality required in other generalized ERP systems. Without the need for such custom functionality, Infor CloudSuite Industrial (Syteline) provides faster implementations with higher ROI.


Infor CloudSuite Industrial (Syteline) supports mixed manufacturing needs, whether you are volume manufacturer or precision, make-to-stock or make-to-order, and lean or traditional manufacturer. Infor CloudSuite provides the most complex manufacturing functionality among ERP systems


Infor CSI supports 26 countries’ regulatory needs out of the box, with more added every month and even more available from third parties. These capabilities can provide manufacturing companies the agility they need, whether they are already present across continents or expanding their supply.
