Understanding the Differences: Infor Visual vs. Infor Visual Jobshop

Posted by Robert Baran on Thu, Jan 08, 2015 @ 10:54 PM

InforPositive Vision offers sales and service of both Infor Visual and Infor Visual Jobshop. It is important to understand the differences so you know which is best for your business. Let’s look at the differences between the two.

Visual Jobshop is perfectly designed to handle tasks of smaller manufacturers. It is a streamlined, lighter version of the more robust ERP Visual. Jobshop contains functionality to help you manage operations for everything from quoting to invoicing but is not a full ERP package like Infor Visual. Jobshop has comprehensive job costing capabilities and uses an "actual costing only" design, but it does not offer an integrated financial package. Instead, it exports its financial transactions to popular accounting packages. Accounting applications perform Jobshop's accounts receivable, accounts payable, and general ledger duties. Jobshop focuses on providing just what small manufacturers need.

On the other hand, Infor Visual ERP includes a master production schedule, automated MRP, human resources, payroll, multi-warehousing, configuration, customer relationship management, patented concurrent scheduling of material availability, and other extensive functions not found in Jobshop.
