Our editorial review staff has had the opportunity to use, demo, and thoroughly review the SYSPRO and Infor CloudSuite Industrial (SyteLine) ERP solutions. We have delved into their features, usability, and target markets to provide you with a comprehensive comparison.
SYSPRO serves industries such as automotive, chemicals, and food. It’s a great fit for small businesses, mid-sized companies, and large enterprises.
We were impressed by SYSPRO’s user-friendliness and its accessibility across devices. It boasts extensive AI and IoT integrations, and the hybrid on-premise and cloud options offer flexibility for businesses. SYSPRO also supports parallel accounting for global regulations, which is a plus for multinational businesses. However, SYSPRO requires third-party add-ons for functions like EDI and shipping notifications.
Infor CloudSuite Industrial (SyteLine), on the other hand, is a better fit for the manufacturing industry for its bill of materials features, customizable reports, and modern design. It’s best suited for small companies and medium-sized distributors and manufacturers.
We were pleased with Infor Syteline’s ability to quickly create or edit existing BOMs. Its Engineering Board feature is particularly useful for developing accurate schedules and achieving cost visibility. However, Infor Syteline could improve its QMS module and make upgrades less challenging.
In conclusion, SYSPRO is likely the better choice for most businesses. Its user-friendly interface, extensive integrations, and hybrid deployment options make it adaptable to a wide range of industries and company sizes. Despite requiring third-party add-ons and lacking some modules, overall, its advantages outweigh the disadvantages.
Conversely, Infor CloudSuite Industrial (SyteLine) offers robust features and excels in the manufacturing industry. However, it does require a significant investment in training due to its complexity.
