Yes, it does. Infor can operate 100% cloud-based for those that prefer it. Infor CloudSuite™ Industrial ensures efficiency, cost savings, and built-in support for multi-site global operations, as well as security that follows best-practice protocols.

Absolutely. The Infor Configure Price Quote (CPQ) software supports every part of a manufacturer’s business━from interest generation and capture, through quoting, order conversion and order fulfillment. It’s a powerful enterprise solution for discrete manufacturers to increase sales, reduce costs, and differentiate their brand(s).

In short, MRP is a planning methodology and ERP is a software product (generally). While materials requirement planning (MRP) has evolved to become a general use term, it describes a very specific planning methodology that originated in the late 70’s and early 80’s. Enterprise Resource Planning solutions (ERP’s) have also evolved over time from two primary directions– the first being production and planning (basic MRP) solutions that manage fulfillment and the second being financially-focused solutions. Together, these functions have converged to form current day enterprise level ERP solutions.
