Implementation/Integration

Infor offers the following deployment options:

On-premise – With on-premise deployment, Infor runs on internal servers hosted at locations the client controls. Clients’ systems, processes and users are connected through internal infrastructure. Organizations often opt for on-premise deployment when they want to host their data internally, or if specific third parties or customers require it.

Cloud – In cloud ERP deployment, Infor’s suites are hosted by a cloud services provider, and the solution’s maintenance and daily operations are outsourced. Infor works with Amazon Web Services, known for its world-class cloud infrastructure. Companies choosing this implementation get the option to scale capability as needs change, which results in lower total cost of ownership (TCO).

Hybrid – With a hybrid implementation, some of the client’s software applications are hosted on-premise while others are deployed in the cloud. Some organizations prefer hosting applications (e.g., CRM) in the cloud, while deploying core systems, such as ERP, on-premise. Companies choose this strategy when they want to take a calculated approach to moving to the cloud or when they’re duty-bound to host specific forms of data internally.

Customer Service & Support

By dialing their local Infor support number, customers can get in touch with Infor’s trained support specialists, who offer personalized support on a daily basis.

Infor offers Elite Support to its dedicated customers. This option includes a designated Customer Success Manager who serves as the customer’s advocate. Success Managers have a deep understanding of Infor’s products.

Additionally, Infor has a support portal for its customers. It’s an all-in-one hub that gives users access to all support resources, from customer communities and service packs to software patches and more.

Infor’s Knowledge Base is updated daily, and it’s where customers can find the Infor Support Assistant – an innovative application that’s synced with their respective Infor applications to help Infor proactively manage their upgrades and issues.

Shortcomings

Some customers have described Infor EAM has a niche player that in turn has difficulty maintaining relevance across all industries.

On Infor EAM’s mobile application, if it runs continuously, it uses up a lot of resources, and can tend to drain battery life quickly.
