About Infor M3

Features

With the full set of Infor M3 applications, you can monitor transactions throughout your organization (national or global), including manufacturing operations, supply chain activities, customer and supplier relationships, warehouse and distribution processes, and financial management.

Standard ERP functions such as financials, supply chain, and sales management are uniquely tuned and adapted to the specific needs of your industry.

Infor M3 delivers:

  • Support for market development, product and equipment sales, together with after-sales service processes to give you a 360° management view of your customers
  • Applications that control and optimize information, material, and financial flows throughout your organization, so you can manage multiple operational units even when they operate under different regulatory controls
  • A way to manage lot and serial number traceability, equipment configurations and product attributes, styles, colors, sizes, co-products, and byproducts in discrete, process, and mixed-mode manufacturing environments, so you can define all aspects of the products that you produce and distribute.
  • A system that captures, manages, controls, and analyzes your business operations, including local regulatory controls

Infor M3 consolidates all this information into one coherent view of operations, specific to the needs of your industry.

Customer Sales and Service

Manage all your customer-related information–from simple product sales to complex configured equipment and kits, make-to-order or make-to-stock, telesales, and EDI. In addition, you can manage your sales channels using the same availability, pricing, and fulfillment controls, whether they are office- or field-based. The suite also includes support for complex rental agreements and both field and depot service processes.

Financial Management

Handle all your accounting, budgeting, consolidation, and reporting requirements. True multi-country, multi-company, and intra-company capabilities also allow you to manage multiple operational units, even when they operate under different regulatory controls. You’ll have the tools you need to capture, analyze, and manage all financial information related to your company’s operations, both externally and internally.

Manufacturing Operations

Define all aspects of the products that you produce and distribute. You’ll be able to centrally manage product definitions for your entire integrated Infor M3 Enterprise System. You’ll be equipped to manage complex, configured, and attribute-controlled products, and directly support costing, planning, and execution. Plus, you get support for such best practices as Lean manufacturing, without sacrificing regulatory control or product complexities.

Supply Chain Management

You get powerful tools for the planning, scheduling, and fulfillment of an extended supply chain, so you can optimize customer service levels and maximize efficiency and profitability. You get functionality for demand planning, supply chain planning, plant scheduling, global available-to-promise, capable-to-promise, and procurement.
