Infor Announces Implementation Accelerator for Distribution

Preconfigured Industry Solution for Infor M3 Facilitates Rapid Implementation to Achieve Faster Return on Investment

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - December 08, 2014) - Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 73,000 customers, today announced the general availability of the Infor Implementation Accelerator for the distribution-specific edition of Infor M3. The solution is designed for organizations that want to implement this enterprise resource planning (ERP) suite quickly, while still benefiting from its flexibility to support future growth.

Infor Implementation Accelerators are a set of preconfigured, yet flexible industry specific processes, training materials and templates that use Infor technology to help customers reduce implementation time, which can decrease both cost and risk and speed time-to-value. By simplifying the implementation process, the pre-built solutions can provide a speedier opportunity for improved business functions, helping to establish a foundation for growth and create long-term scalability.

"The distribution business model is evolving, causing many companies to seek out new sources of revenue and ways to reduce excess expenses," said Lisa Russell, industry and solution strategy director, Infor Distribution. "The Infor Implementation Accelerator helps organizations to implement Infor M3 more quickly and cost effectively, which drives a faster return on investment and minimizes disruption to daily operations."

Infor M3 is a uniquely powerful ERP solution designed to help global wholesale distributors optimize front and back-office operations, from warehouse inventory and the supply chain to financials and sales. By creating company-wide visibility and equipping users with critical real-time data, Infor M3 facilitates improved decision making, helping distributors to increase profitability and speed the overall pace of business. Built with industry-specific capabilities, Infor M3 provides maximum flexibility in how companies choose to deploy, implement and manage operations, whether in the cloud, on-premise or in a hybrid environment.

Infor Implementation Accelerators are developed by Infor Consulting Services (ICS) to assist with faster, more meaningful industry-based deployments. The addition of an Implementation Accelerator to Infor M3 can help distributors to lower costs, improve profit margins and better serve customers through more efficient product delivery.
