Infor has announced general availability of Infor MyDay for Infor ERP Adage. Infor MyDay is a dynamic Web 2.0 user interface for Infor applications that provides central access to the critical information users need to excel in their daily work.

For no additional charge, customers of Infor ERP Adage 5.0 or higher with active maintenance plans are able to take advantage of Infor MyDay. Infor ERP Adage is a comprehensive ERP solution for process manufacturers.

We view Infor MyDay as a key enabler in reducing the complexity of obtaining business information from a variety of sources and getting it into the hands of decision makers when they need it, said Richard Langen, business system analyst for Nomaco Inc., a global leader in custom thermoplastic foam extrusions and molded products. Integrating data from nine disparate systems around the world and subsequently presenting that information in a personalised manner, tailored to an employees role within our organisation is vital to our ability to thrive and compete globally.

Infor MyDay Personalises Information Delivery

More intelligent than a dashboard, Infor MyDay delivers real-time, critical business information to business users in a single interface on their desktops, enabling them to spend more time acting on information instead of gathering it. Its capabilities include predefined reports and graphic representations of key performance indicators (KPIs), delivered in a personalised format based on specific functions in key business areas such as Purchasing, Sourcing, Processing, Accounting, and Accounts Payable. More than 150 function-specific roles will be accommodated in the future, along with tasks and alerts to help guide business users through daily actions. Based on in-depth research into the roles and working life of real users, Infor MyDay presents content from Infor applications in a personalised format, allowing users to easily drill-down to underlying transactional data and make sound decisions that create value for the organisation.

Infor MyDay reduces the need for IT to build customised reports for different business users, lowering total cost of ownership of ERP software. Furthermore, business users can personalise their own views of the data without support from IT.

Employees in the Purchasing and Sourcing departments can use the systems consolidated data reporting to make business decisions that reduce excess expenditures, manage vendor viability risks and identify ways to consolidate multiple vendors and suppliers. Infor MyDay reports provide users in the Sales department immediate visibility into trends in sales volume and customer service levels, as well as the costs of servicing customers.

Users in Finance and Accounting can gain greater insight, in less time, to cash flow, total cost-to-serve customers and total cost-to-quality, which enables them to make more informed decisions that improve profitability and productivity.

 Access to pertinent, real-time business data across an organisation is paramount to making better business decisions, as well as improving operations and customer service, said Rory Granros, director of process solution marketing, Infor. Infor MyDay takes ERP capabilities to the next level by providing visibility into the why and not just the what of business operations by filtering data by job function and relevancy, delivering it in a condensed home-page format so that users can quickly make decisions and take actions to improve overall performance.

Infor Open SOA

Infor MyDay utilises Infor Open SOA, a unique, event-driven service-oriented architecture (SOA) that leverages an industry standard business language to distribute data between Infor solutions and other systems. Infor Open SOA provides a standards-based approach for integration of both Infor and non-Infor systems and data sources. Through Infor Open SOA, Infor customers can rapidly and economically add Infor, third-party and in-house software applications without the need to rip-and-replace software or interrupt other systems during operations, a key benefit to Infor Open SOA. Infor Open SOA allows future component-based enhancements to Infor solutions to be delivered in the same non-disruptive manner, easing the implementation process for future technology integrations.
