Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Infor LX's most valuable feature is that it's very interactive.""The most valuable features are the exit points that enable integration with external software."

More Infor LX Pros →

"The installation is extremely simple, and I have had no problems with it.""The most valuable features of Microsoft Dynamics AX are ease of use and performance.""Dynamics AX provides a lot of functionality.""Support is really good.""One of the valuable features of the solution is how easy it is to use.""It is easy to use, and it has a great UI. It has very well-structured modules. In terms of setup and configuration, they're logically placed, which makes it easy for any user to pick up information and learn more about the system, rather than just be plain key users of that business operating system.""It is flexible and cost-effective.""It was an okay solution when we delivered hardware and we had to do maintenance."

More Microsoft Dynamics AX Pros →

"The connectors, performance, and knowledgebase availability can be improved.""Infor's support side is not that good, and they seem to be focusing on other products above LX."

More Infor LX Cons →

"At times there are issues related to reporting, sometimes with the integration between two or three modules, and sometimes to the logic itself.""There are so many errors.""Microsoft Dynamics AX could be improved by having more features available. We are going to 365 now, to use all the modules, because we found that there weren't many new things we were able to develop with AX. There were a lot of things that weren't available, so we are moving and integrating other things. The customization of upgrades should also be faster. We would also like to see more security features.""Microsoft Dynamics AX can improve system performance and security. The security is basic and needs a lot of improvement.""The integration could improve for the future.""They should include some modules related to solving customer problems or resolving support tickets from our customers — like a help desk for ERPs.""This solution could be improved with more expert resources and an easier implementation process.""The product is standardised across industries so it is not a good fit for all types of sectors."
