Infor Global Solutions has announced a new version of Infor ERP Visual, a comprehensive business software solution for small to midsized discrete manufacturers.
Infor ERP Visual 6.5.3 features enhancements that strengthen the engineering, manufacturing, purchasing, project management, and customer order processes, enabling companies to increase operational efficiencies and improve productivity.
Users will also gain quicker access to more relevant enterprise data and have more options in the configuration of data fields, delivering greater flexibility and enhanced convenience.
Many of the new enhancements were generated through customer feedback gathered through Infor365, Infor Global Solutions’ new-generation online support portal and community of Infor Global Solutions’ users, as well as Infor Global Solutions’ support team.
“The customer-driven enhancements included in version 6.5.3 demonstrate Infor’s commitment to enrich our software with the business-specific functionality that our customers need,” said Kevin Piotrowski, director, industry and product marketing, discrete industries, Infor Global Solutions.
“Infor Global Solutions’ customers have an active, significant voice in shaping the development of their products. This process is a vital enabler of our ability to deliver new product enhancements that provide value to our customers.”
The additions to Infor ERP Visual 6.5.3 include several new user-defined features, including a customisable user interface and audit trails. This ability will help Infor ERP Visual users increase their efficiency and productivity by delivering a convenient, consolidated view of the information that is most important to them in their day-to-day business.
User-defined audit trails identify key data for tracking, providing visibility into where and what changes were made, which can help ensure data quality and regulatory compliance. Additionally, new features in the shipping and resources programs enable users to further customise their defined fields, improving workforce productivity.
Enhancements to the manufacturing and engineering modules of Infor ERP Visual include new features and reports to enhance how customers manage their warehouses and provide access to more accurate and specific materials data.
Purchasing managers benefit from a new module, the Purchasing Management Window (PMW), which creates a configurable workbench that allows users to see material shortages, usage and purchase history, and generate a PO via drag and drop. Additionally, a new receiving inspection window allows for a targeted focus on individual tasks.
Project management enhancements include new workflow management tools to identify bottlenecks in the manufacturing, purchasing and work orders processes, removing delays and contributing to reduced lead times and productivity improvements.
The workflow tools simplify project creation by reducing the information necessary to start a new project and moving additional information entry to more relevant points in the project timeline.
