Improve Planning and Reduce Costs with APS

Infor CloudSuite™ Industrial’s Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) is a powerful solution that synchronizes the use of work centers, inventory, resources, and supply with customer orders. APS helps manufacturers meet their goals by providing greater visibility into planning so you can increase on-time performance while reducing inventory and operating costs. With APS, you get a continuously visible plan to understand each job and the POs they need and the solution’s “what-if” capabilities let users determine the impact of decisions. You also have available-to-promise and capable-to-promise calculations on the quote, order, or before releasing a job to make sure you are setting the right expectations with customers.

Effortlessly Manage Purchase Requests

Infor CloudSuite™ Industrial Purchase Order (PO) Requisitions helps enforce your internal financial controls by managing requests for purchases across your organization. With CloudSuite™ Industrial, once requests are routed for approval and sent to accounting, you can create a PO requisition manually, or the requisition can be made by cross-referencing from a customer order, transfer order, bill of materials, or job.

CloudSuite™ Industrial allows your organization to:

  • Generate a unique PO requisition number automatically
  • Create POs for inventory and non-inventoried items
  • Automatically create PO requisitions from customer order lines and blanket releases, estimated materials and project resources, transfer order lines, etc.
  • Set approval levels by PO requisition limit and PO requisition line limit
  • See and approve all of the PO requisitions that an approver owns
  • Convert approved PO requisitions to POs, automatically

Process Purchases in Real-time

Easily coordinate material purchases with CloudSuite™ Industrial by providing online decision support that simplifies record keeping. CloudSuite™ Industrial handles all types of purchases and its module provides standard form reports, including acknowledgments, order lists for purchasing personnel, accounts payable-related reports, and vouchers’ payable reports. Enter purchase orders, order receipts, and returns in real-time and let CloudSuite™ Industrial calculate adjustments.

With CloudSuite™ Industrial, you can:

  • Manage PO tolerance for inventory and non-inventory items
  • Link a PO line item to a specific job requiring that item
  • Issue materials to a work order when you receive items purchased directly to a job
  • Generate vendor purchase requisitions with approval limits
  • Maintain blanket POs
  • Store and track information about a particular item
  • View the planned costs, actual unit costs, promise dates, and due dates for each line item
