Infor has upgraded its enterprise resource planning system to help process manufacturers minimize costs and increase operational efficiencies. The platform-independent system now features improved order to cash and integration capabilities and a graphical intuitive interface.
Infor ERP Adage is an enterprise resource planning (ERP) platform for batch process manufacturers with a particular focus on food and beverage, specialty chemicals, over-the-counter pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, and consumer packaged goods. Adage supports local regulatory, compliance, language and currency requirements for global businesses with multiple facilities or wholly-owned subsidiaries.
Process manufacturers face pressures from globalization, regulatory compliance complexity and the need for more effective quality management, said Infor vice president of industry & product marketing, Mike Frichol. With these latest enhancements, Adage continues to ensure compliance, collaboration and information transparency across extended supply chains – a necessity for businesses seeking to improve the flow of goods, eliminate waste and gain efficiencies.
According to Infor, improving the order to cash process is a strategic priority for many companies because it can help minimize the cost to serve customers, total cost of quality and compliance. The order to cash process impacts upon multiple departments, including sales, production and finance.
Adage’s enhancements, such as advanced pricing deductions and consolidated invoicing, are designed to enable company resources to complete their part of the process error-free and then transfer accurate information across functional boundaries.
Adage 5.0 includes seamless integration with complementary applications such as product lifecycle management, enterprise asset management and warehouse management, allowing companies to develop and introduce new products with higher margins and manage complex inventory and manufacturing requirements.
