Industrial Machinery & Equipment
Industrial equipment manufacturers must deal with complex products, extensive engineering activity, tight deadlines, and cost containment pressures, while striving to meet competition from around the globe. Small and medium size manufacturers compete with much larger multinationals all the time and have the same needs as their larger brethren but fewer resources to apply to meet the challenges. That’s why Infor SyteLine ERP Manufacturing software for industrial equipment manufacturers is packed with world-class capabilities but designed for ease-of-use so that smaller and mid-sized companies can have the tools they need to compete, without the overhead that other systems not designed for this environment might require. Today’s customers expect a lot from their equipment suppliers and the Infor SyteLine Manufacturing ERP system for industrial equipment manufacturers will help you deliver on-time and on-budget despite complex specifications and designs, frequent design changes and late changes.
Fabricated Metals manufacturers facing increased global pressure are stressed to find new efficiencies. Price sensitivity, volatile raw material cost, shorter product lifecycles, and adoption of quality and value-added services continue to erode already thin margins. In response, many manufacturers are expanding their traditional business and looking for new opportunities-some in new and unknown markets and others centered in business performance. Lean initiatives are driving many manufacturers to re-engineer business processes from the plant floor to the top floor to the extended supply chain. These same businesses are enjoying business-wide costs savings, reduction in raw material and work in process, improved throughput, and better utilization of existing resources, and improved customer satisfaction. Infor CloudSuite Industrial (SyteLine) ERP understands the demands placed on manufacturers today and helps you respond.

Specialty vehicle manufacturing (buses, limousines, ambulances, trailers & tactical) and recreational vehicle manufacturing (RVs, boats, ships, and yachts) are some of the world’s most globally competitive industries. Tougher customer demands for quality products in shorter lead times and pricing pressures continue to escalate. The key to retaining profitable customer relationships is to manage project resources in a collaborative ERP environment that synchronizes all customer requirements.
Furniture, Fixtures, Automotive, OEM

To keep pace with customer demand, furniture manufacturers offer greatly expanded product lines and custom options.
