"The Infor Storeroom solution provides the integration, flexibility, and usability necessary to encourage integrated supply services agreements, which can be very beneficial for both the wholesale distributor and its customers."

Enhancements in Infor Storeroom 10.0 include the ability to personalize branding on the application and new user definable fields to help speed returns and the resolution of order issues. The application also offers easier navigation and more robust search functionality. These enrichments will help distributors gain real-time visibility into the movement of items between warehouses and simplify inventory management down to the individual bin location.

"As next-generation employees continue to join the distribution workforce, they expect consumer-grade applications that rival those used in their personal lives," said Kelly Squizzero, industry and solution strategy director, Infor Distribution. "The latest release of Infor Storeroom is designed to help distributors recruit top talent, and extend beyond traditional functionality to create a more meaningful and enjoyable user experience for all employees."
