Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving over 70,000 customers, has announced Infor Workspace, a new consumer grade user interface designed to revolutionise the experience of doing business using enterprise applications.
Built on Microsoft SharePoint and significant R&D investment, Infor Workspace delivers the next generation user experience by blending a common user interface, in-context collaboration and business intelligence.
The role-based user experience allows users to access business functions with proactive, real-time decision making using a common look-and-feel.
Fusing industry processes, analytics and enterprise applications, Infor Workspace provides a consumer grade user experience with single sign-on, common look-and-feel, and seamless navigation across multiple applications deployed either on-premise or in the cloud.
Infor Workspace is simple to use and easy to understand, designed to enable end-users to learn, ask, suggest, share and experience — all in ways previously unavailable for enterprise applications.
It provides real-time in-context business intelligence for faster more accurate decision making.
Infor Workspace is the first tool that allows applications to co-exist and bring in outside information, including KPIs, dynamic alerts and other tools targeting key functions within the application for the user.
Such tools include:
* Mapping tools that provide visibility into locations of goods, inventories, assets and supply chain networks.
* Currency and time conversion that provides critical information for companies operating in today’s global business environment.
Because the tools are context aware, they will automatically anticipate and adapt to user needs and interests based on the users’ role and the business function they are performing at a given moment.
With Infor Workspace, users can proactively manage business challenges with automatic alert management tools that monitor the status of tasks in relation to promised completion or established service level agreements and alert users to exceptions.
Infor Workspace is currently available for Infor ERP LN, Infor ERP SyteLine, Infor EAM, Infor FMS SunSystems and Infor Expense Management, and is expected to be rolled out as the standard interface for additional browser-based Infor applications over time.
