More Infor LX Pros →

"It is an integrated application, and it has been working really well. Earlier, there were different companies for different applications for manufacturing, finance controlling, logistics, and quality. It probably was the first fully integrated application. Whenever somebody is entering any data, for example, invoice data or ordering data, everyone with a right to see this data can see it in the system.""I like that SAP ERP is very robust and stable.""The most valuable feature is the robust workflows that SAP provides to us in our organization. Overall, I find it the best ERP solution compared to other similar solutions.""Continuing to use it enabled continuity of business.""SAP is already working on improvements by doing annual releases with enhancements.""It provides great visibility into the details of enterprise resource planning.""The solution has a lot of good integrated modules.""The solution provides good production planning."

More SAP ERP 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 →

"In general, a user should attend training before they can use this platform. There's definitely a learning curve. As a new user or employee, there may be some difficulty with onboarding.""ERP could use better integration with other systems.""It is a little difficult to use.""It could be more flexible, and the company should be able to adapt the system. Not the other way around. It's very rigid and difficult to change. Reporting could also be better.""The solution is quite expensive. They need to work on the pricing to make it more reasonable.""Functionality could be improved.""Reporting is why most companies need to acquire business intelligence add-on solutions, and when it comes to SAP ERP, they could improve the reporting graphical representation of the data.""The system is very big. It is not exactly user-friendly, due to the fact that it's so massive and complex."
