About Infor VISUAL

Infor has over 70,000 customers in more than 200 countries and territories. Customers use Infor’s ERP products to improve operations, drive growth, and adapt to changes in business demands. Infor offers industry-specific applications and suites in a number of software verticals. Infor VISUAL is a scalable, manufacturing-centric ERP solution that delivers end-to-end functionality for a diverse range of manufacturing businesses, and has over 4,000 customers around the world.

As its name would imply, it is a highly visual manufacturing management solution. The graphical user interface allows for at-a-glance monitoring of each step of the manufacturing process and how they relate to one another, helping to resolve bottlenecks and boost the efficiency of your scheduling and pricing. Infor VISUAL is best suited for engineer-to-order, make-to-order, configure-to-order, make-to-stock, assemble-to-order, and mixed-mode manufacturers. Infor VISUAL is a business solution that embraces patented finite or lean (DBR) scheduling concepts with optimal throughput recommendations. It also is relatively easy to maintain and deploy, thanks to the availability of outsourced hardware and maintenance services. Manufacturers operating across multiple sites take heart — Infor VISUAL can be scaled and deployed to support all of your locations without requiring an additional database server. 

Infor VISUAL can help quickly convert customer requirements into manufacturing requirements and then execute them efficiently. The Lean manufacturing process, when implemented correctly, eliminates redundant or wasteful steps that can be associated with some non-Lean manufacturing software. While it is not inexpensive, the efficiency gained by working in one system delivers strong ROI. It is also priced by user, either individual or concurrent, allowing you to limit the total cost of ownership. Implementation averages four to six months.

What do you like best about this product?

I like that it can be scaled to fit the needs of small business enterprise as well as large businesses. For us, the best thing about the product is that it is tracking all of our key performance indicators in one place and we are gaining accurate throughput from one place.

What could be improved about this product?

Visual South, our value added service provider is outstanding. There are times that we don’t know what we don’t know and there is hesitation on our part about when to contact Infor for support or our service provider. Point being, the support is outstanding but at times we are not sure which source to exploit.

What was your main concern about buying this software?

The right fit for our business, price, implementation. Everyone reads the horror stories of failed ERP system implementations. We wanted to make sure ours was a success. So far so good.

What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you seen?

A large part of our disjointedness in our prior system left gaps in our job costing and financial throughput which kept management decisions handcuffed. Visual is unlocking the handcuffs.

What do you like best about this product?

I like that there is very easy to access support provided by the Visual team for problems that may arise. I like that Visual can be a fully customized solution. . I also like that you can use what you need to use, and not use what you do not have a need for. We completely run our organization through this software, and could do even more than we currently do if we wanted to.

What could be improved about this product?

I think opening even more things customization would further benefit everyone. There are certain things that can’t be changed, or that are set by Infor to work a certain way but shouldn’t. Also, reporting definitely needs a complete overhaul. Report exports to CSV should export with the custom report features that you have selected.

What was your main concern about buying this software?

Cost. This is always the top concern, otherwise we would download it for free and see if we like it…..

What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you seen?

We recently implemented the Estimating window, and that has definitely helped separate our quotes from our customer orders & gives us much more detailed pricing information as well as speeds our system up because we initially used “ON HOLD” orders as our quoting system. Since I have worked here, we went from 100 problems per month with Visual to virtually none…..so definitely hire an in house IT expert to learn this program and grow to support your company.

What do you like best about this product?

Visual has all the critical functions required for manufacturing software. In addition its ability to use MS SQL server allows us to generate queries directly out of MS Excel or MS Access so that our staff can efficiently use the data immediately.

What could be improved about this product?

As with any software any automation functions are welcome.

What was your main concern about buying this software?

Cost is always a concern. We were also concerned about the ability to integrate some 3rd party software which was a requirement. We found integration could be effectively done & so have found Visual to be a good product for our company.

What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you seen?

Integrating our manufacturing & purchasing while simultaneously allowing effective billing & inventory control. We have also been able to use some ‘bolt on’ processes quite effectively in doing Cash application & other functions.

The historical data available enables better business decisions. The ability to automate many functions keeps us efficient in staffing.

What do you like best about this product?

Visual is full of robust functionality that can be tweaked to suit your specific environment. I’ve yet to find an aspect of our business that could not be handled by a Visual solution. The support group is top notch and follows through with all reported issues to resolution. They’ve got an awesome response time and usually reply within an hour.

What could be improved about this product?

Because of the abundance of features it can have a daunting learning curve. If there was a way to simplify the User interface while maintaining the depth of function…

What was your main concern about buying this software?

As with any ERP system the cost seems high but it is well worth the investment .

What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you seen?

All aspects of our business are controlled through Visual; Sales, Orders, Labor Collection, Material Handling, Shipping, Planning, Inventory, Accounting, Quality, Engineering Masters…. It’s the one piece that ties all our Departments together. Visual helps us grow and grows with us. The metrics provided are spot on and allow us to target weak areas for continual improvement.

Reviewed on January 8, 2015

What do you like best about this product?

Visual Enterprise is a stable environment with minimal issues. We utilize SQL server for the database management. We manufacture a Configured Product, and Visual Enterprise supports this with integration to an Engineering based configuration software. VE offers strong MRP and Scheduling tools.

What could be improved about this product?

We are running an older version and look forward to updating to take advantage of 64 bit OS in the near future.

What was your main concern about buying this software?

Fit and function. Both have been met by utilizing Microsoft Access for reports/ DB queries.

What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you seen?

We run our business with this software along with integrated products such as Visual CRM.
