More Infor M3 Pros →

"The interface is very user-friendly.""I have found the solutions best features to be financial procurement, inventory, and manufacturing.""With the new versions, it has become very user-friendly. We have integration with mobiles, and we have cloud-based solutions. There are a lot of things that can be done by front-end users without technical knowledge. They can create reports without having to do any coding, and it's very good now.""The solution is stable.""I think it is strong in sales, inventory, and pricing.""It is highly configurable. You have a choice in terms of how you want to run it. You can run it in your own data center, in a private cloud, or in a public cloud. The choice is really up to the customer.""The most valuable feature is the user experience, where you can create your own queries, it sends you alerts, and it's very flexible.""We did not have any problems with the scalability of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne."

Cons
"The solution is stable but not agile.""The implementation could be simplified, it's complex."

More Infor M3 Cons →

"If they can research and make the installation part easier or more user-friendly, it would be nice.""Something that could be included is a supply chain management system. That's what we're looking for.""The solution could be easier to implement. However, the complexity was in our internal processes meeting our country's requirements. Every country has a slightly different process, taxation, and rules. That was the difficult part, not the solution itself. I expect our experience would have been more or less the same with any ERP, such as SAP, Navision, or Dynamics.""We originally used EnterpriseOne for preventative maintenance, but it is not very good at that so we migrated to Maximo for that task.""I would like to see the HR features enhanced with respect to localization for South Africa and other countries.""We found that the system was unable to address many of our concerns, especially when it comes to project management.""The flexibility of workflows and multi-industry implementation support should be improved.""They have been improving it every day, but it could have more automation."
