Physical Inventory

Any company with inventory knows that conducting a physical inventory (counting all inventory in the warehouse) can be a daunting task.

This is similar to a physical inventory but on a smaller scale and doesn’t require a warehouse inventory freeze. Thus, cycle counts do not interrupt your daily operations, provide for continuous audits of the inventory and can be focused on specific skus.

  • Companies who negotiate each foreign currency transaction at a fixed rate agreed with the customer/vendor. Payments are at that fixed rate. When using a fixed rate, specify that rate on the Customer Orders or Purchase Orders form’s Amounts tab. (Running the Currency Revaluation utilities will not impact these entries.)

User Reviews of Infor CloudSuite Industrial (SyteLine)

Submitted on March 30th, 2016 by David Cox from Rieke

We had acquired and grown to where we had locations around the world. Unfortunately, we had a system installed but everyone was using it differently. When we tried to roll up information from a corporate standpoint, the numbers didn’t mean the same.

Other customers were global like us and they were ordering from different locations and we couldn’t figure out how much a customer was ordering worldwide. We ending up choosing Syteline and are implemetning worldwide. We have half of our locations installed.

We have begun to standardize our processes. We can look across and see what’s happening at the locations and the shop floor. We can see real-time inventory accuracy. It’s been eye-opening. We’ve gotten more out of it and there is probably more to come then we even knew possible.

Submitted on June 13th, 2014 by Kendal Phipps from PRIDE Industries

The application has been installed in the cloud. This allows us for flexibility without having to manage our own networks or connectivity. The system is utilized by over 400 technicians throughout the country. The cloud technology has allowed us to access the systems without dealing with infrastructures or networks.

Submitted on August 20th, 2013 by Luke Rains from Preferred Sands

We realized quickly we needed a much more efficient system with much more efficient logistics, much more efficient producers.

We recognized quickly back in 2008 we didn’t have software systems or ERP systems that were scalable. We knew we needed a solution that would allow us to connect to different data systems and understand where that inventory was in real-time so we wouldn’t lose a grain of sand.

We evaluated a lot of ERP systems and we found the Infor Syteline was the most complete. Syteline provides a core functionality and we could grow with that functionality as we grew. This let us drive huge efficiencies and it was scalable.

We use ION to integrate our procure-to-pay process and now 75% of our projects are under budget.
