Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The best feature of this solution is it comes as a complete bundle. The solution has effective project, document, and application management. Additionally, the collaboration is fantastic, it is well integrated, and can be customized.""Our clients appreciate the financial part of the solution, which is usually very complex. The Spanish localization is also very good.""It's not too hard to handle the initial setup.""It has strong sales, purchase, warehousing, and logistics order management.""LN is definitely a stable product. It's number one on Gartner's four quadrants.""We have definitely seen a return on our investment with the product.""Infor LN has basically the same structure as CloudSuite Industrial, but LN has more advanced planning tools for manufacturing."

Cons
"The training for Infor LN is not straightforward, so a non-specialist will need training before using it.""Only people who undergo training from the companies can learn about Infor products.""From a technical perspective, LN needs to work on customization and integration. It's fairly expensive for many clients to migrate from a customized private solution to the cloud. Infor needs to improve the cloud solution to make the migration from the on-prem customized solution faster and smoother. Otherwise, many clients will find it difficult or expensive to do.""The interface can be difficult sometimes. I need to apply a bar code system, such as business intelligence and user interface tools. The user has to be a technician sometimes to use it.""The user interface needs to be improved.""From a customers' perspective, Infor LN covers most of the processes in the company, but sometimes, they have to choose other tools because of the functionality or the cost of the Infor solution. It covers the core functions of the company—such as financial, operations, logistics, and so on—very well, but it doesn't cover some parts such as invoices, digitization, etc.""While Infor LN incorporates the latest business processes and functions, there is always room for improvement as the business grows. In the new normal, it could stand to incorporate quite a few automation processes like the RPA and utilize machine learning in the Internet of Things."
