Infor ERP Software
Through an aggressive acquisition strategy, Infor has emerged as one of the largest providers of enterprise software. They offer a full set of applications ranging from enterprise resource planning (ERP) to enterprise asset management (EAM) to product lifecycle management to workforce management. The company has acquired roughly 30 software companies in its short history, giving it a strong portfolio of products with many high-profile customers.
Of course supporting 30 disparate systems - and customers - presents obvious challenges. So Infor has introduced Infor10 ION Suite, a middleware technology that connects Infor applications. They have also branded the rest of their products with the same prefix.
Infor’s main enterprise resource planning (ERP) products include Infor10 ERP Enterprise, Lawson M3 ERP Enterprise, Infor10 ERP Business, Infor10 ERP Express and Infor10 ERP Process Business. At first glance the products look similar with each offering common ERP capabilities. But upon closer inspection, you’ll notice the products offer unique functionality for different industries and manufacturers. For example, Infor10 ERP Process Business is designed for process manufacturers such as chemical, food and beverage and pharmaceutical manufacturers. Meanwhile, Infor10 ERP Express is aimed at discrete manufacturers such as aerospace and defense, automotive and machinery manufacturers
In addition to common ERP applications, Infor offers enterprise asset management (EAM) software for organizations that need to track financial and maintenance information of assets and buildings. They offer four EAM products: Infor10 EAM Enterprise, Infor10 EAM Asset Sustainability, Infor10 EAM Business and Infor10 EAM (MP2). With the exception of the Sustainability product, each one is aimed at a specific size of organization. For example, Infor10 EAM Enterprise is targeted at large enterprises. According to Infor, it is used by more than 60% of the Fortune 500. Meanwhile Infor10 EAM Business is targeted towards small- and mid-sized organizations. EAM Asset Sustainability is unique because of its capabilities to track the energy-efficiency and environmental impact of buildings.

Infor is said to be the third largest provider of enterprise applications with 70,000 customers in 164 countries. It has grown rapidly since its launch in 2002 by acquiring more than 30 companies, including most recently, Lawson Software. Among its customers are leading companies such as AT&T, the City of New York, General Mills, Johnson & Johnson and many more. Infor is a privately held company based out of Alpharetta Georgia.
