Infor Invests in Enhancing Learning Management Tools

Updates Allow for Better Content Creation, Collaboration Through Social Business Tools and Mobility

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - January 12, 2015) - Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 73,000 customers, today announced the availability of the next generation of Infor Learning Management, a cloud- based application that will help customers meet learning, training and development needs. Infor Learning Management is an innovative platform that combines a learning management system (LMS), a learning content management system (LCMS), content authoring, advanced reporting, social collaboration and community learning, mobile learning, and certification/compliance management.

The most recent release, version 9.0, includes important enhancements designed to empower managers and learners through the use of improved content creation tools, auditing controls, and tracking, and supports delivery of knowledge across the extended enterprise, including customers, suppliers, distributors, retailers, and other stakeholders. Now, Infor Learning Management provides a plug-in for direct integration into the Infor Ming.le environment, a comprehensive platform for social collaboration, which enables Single-Sign-On into the system. Users are able to open courses, as well as share LMS screens, directly from Infor Ming.le, making the process much more efficient and collaborative.

Infor Learning Management is geared to help organizations quickly drive performance and productivity, and encompasses all aspects of the learning process in an organization. Additional key feature enhancements include:

  • More mobile support. Infor Learning Management now enables organizations to use built-in HTML5 templates, or create their own, to allow for mobile learning on Apple iOS devices. 
  • Reduced administrative effort when distributing content to users. Version 9.0 enables the creation of distribution rules for courses so that they can be assigned to users automatically based on user profiles -- making the experience more personalized and efficient.
  • Better tracking of user training. Now, organizations have better insight into tracking different types of training, such as user-submitted training and certification, Continuing Education (CE) credits, and granting users credit for courses that do not comply with eLearning standards.
  • Additional language support. This new update is now localized in the Portal and Learner course player in Indonesian, Korean, Malaysian, Spanish (Mexico), Thai, and Vietnamese.

"Having an educated workforce is at the heart of any successful organization, and by implementing advanced learning tools, organizations are able to significantly improve the performance of their people in the workplace, which directly impacts bottom line results," said Charles Cagle, senior vice president, HCM Operations, Infor. "Infor continues to invest and develop its human capital management solutions so our customers have leading edge technology to streamline everyday tasks and keep them as competitive as possible in the marketplace."
