Infor ERP SyteLine Now Available with Infor MyDay and Additional New Features
"New features in ERP SyteLine deliver powerful new functionality to an already dynamic system, making it an even stronger tool for manufacturers," said Kevin Piotrowski, director of discrete solution marketing. "A critical enhancement to the solution is Infor MyDay, which takes ERP to the next level by delivering users more relevant data directly to their desktops, based on their individual roles at the company."
Infor announced an enhanced version of Infor ERP SyteLine, a comprehensive enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution used worldwide by more than 3,000 discrete manufacturers. New features in ERP SyteLine 8.01 include support for Infor MyDay, a dynamic Web 2.0 user interface for Infor applications that provides central access to the critical information users need to excel in their daily work, enhanced customer relationship management (CRM) functionality and improved event management (EM).
Infor MyDay takes the vast amounts of business data captured and stored by ERP SyteLine, as well as other business applications, and provides the pertinent information in a single view to employees based on their roles within the organization. Previously, ERP solutions did not allow for users to easily access and analyze data that was often trapped in information silos or documents in the system. Infor MyDay sets relevant data free so that decision-makers can respond quickly. The information can help manufacturers improve cash flow, boost profits, reduce operating expenses, improve product quality, increase revenue, and speed time to correct problems. Infor MyDay is provided at no additional charge to companies running ERP SyteLine 8.01 and higher with active maintenance plans.
New to ERP SyteLine's core functionality is additional CRM capability to help manufacturers optimize customer relationships through the integration of marketing, sales and service. With this functionality built directly into the solution, companies can update information stored in the system to manage prospects and sales contacts. With greater visibility and access to customer information, users of ERP SyteLine are able to expand their marketing and lead generation opportunities and create new revenue for the company.
ERP SyteLine 8.01 also features improved event management for manufacturers. Event management enables companies to respond to events as they occur, or fail to occur, so that immediate action can be taken and productivity and profitability remain high. The system provides workflow, automation and real-time response to changing conditions within ERP SyteLine.
ERP SyteLine is anchored on Infor Open SOA, a unique, event-driven service-oriented architecture (SOA) that leverages an industry standard business language to distribute data between Infor solutions and other systems. Through Infor Open SOA, Infor customers can rapidly and economically add Infor, third-party and in-house software applications without the need to "rip-and-replace" software or interrupt other systems during operations.
