There’s only one way to outperform the competition: meet customer demands and keep pace with increasing market pressures. With thin margins, and complex manufacturing processes to manage, industrial organisations require an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution that is tailored to its unique needs, and that of its customers.

According to Infor (as confirmed by reports from Nucleus Research), the Infor CloudSuite Industrial (SyteLine) solution provides the tools needed to manage end-to-end industrial operations; from financials and order entry to after-market service and analytics.

SyteLine offers a number of key benefits, the most notable of which include:

  • Effective management of ETO, MTO, MTS and mixed mode manufacturing
