From motivating your workforce to be fully engaged, to automating data collection, and escalating critical alerts, your fine-tuned system allows you to focus on the key issues that lead to greater profitability. With collaboration, social, and mobile tools, deep analytics, flexible deployment options, and easily integrated business applications, you can achieve a true IT transformation for your company. In the face of increasing global competition and challenging market conditions that’s what it takes to get ahead today. You need to change the way your work is done and next-generation ERP technology with Infor Visual makes it possible—and necessary.

One of the many great examples of this is the ability to extend connectivity and productivity with integrated mobile solutions.Your key employees seldom sit at a workstation all day. Your managers may be on the shop floor, in meetings, coordinating activities, overseeing a wide variety of tasks across the plant, and, sometimes, may even be working off-site. To be as responsive and productive as possible, your remote personnel must maintain connectivity and continue to have access to critical data—anytime from anywhere.  Laptops, ruggedized devices, smart phones, and tablets make it easier than ever to maintain this connectivity.

Another way Infor Visual is unique is how it helps control costs and improve profitability. The recent economic market pressures forced many manufacturers to control costs through staff reductions. This trimming often included ITdepartments. If you have limited IT resources, you probably already know the frustration of maintaining cumbersome, outdated systems that have been heavily modified. You know how time-consuming and costly it can be to get the advanced reports and tools you need to be competitive. On the other hand, many profit-focused manufacturers, have invested in technology transformations that allow their staffs—without highly specialized training—to do much of their own reporting and screen personalization. Ease of use, automated workflows, embedded best practices, knowledge bases, collaboration tools, and self-service capabilities are providing employees with a higher level of autonomy. This is just one of the ways that controlling complexity helps contain costs and improve profits. Increasing productivity, accommodating hybrid environments, and detailed project management are other ways Infor Visual is helping manufacturers increase profitability.

It’s a new era in manufacturing. The question is, are you ready to seize the opportunity? Fortunately, when you are ready, you can be confident that Infor understands your market pressures and the potential impact technology solutions can have on your success.  For more great examples like the two above, of how Infor Visual can impact your manufacturing business, click here to download the product brochure.
