Infor aids sustainability 08 July 2024

Infor, the industry Cloud company, has introduced industry specific GenAI and ESG reporting capabilities to help customers improve productivity and report on their environmental footprint. 

Infor GenAI is built to leverage customers’ industry data and processes to bring substantial productivity gains in the industries served. For example, automatic assignment of attributes for products in distribution, creating exception summary for complex projects in industrial manufacturing, takes away unnecessary work that users do today. 

Infor ESG Reporting helps customers address the increased pressure and changing requirements from internal and external stakeholders to report on their environmental footprint. With Infor ESG Reporting, customers have the data and analytics to help drive more meaningful, measurable, and actionable change, while reporting on their environmental footprint with improved accuracy, transparency and consistency. 

Infor’s modern solutions, from ERPs to supply chain solutions, run critical operations in a variety of industries including manufacturing and distribution, and the power of GenAI – combined with unique industry capabilities and insights – give customers immediate power to leverage the right data and workflows to help realise more value, more quickly. Additionally, the solutions adhere to stringent security and data privacy best practices, driven by Infor’s OS platform.

“We’re constantly listening to customers’ pain points and anticipating opportunities that enable customers to be successful and competitively advantaged. When it comes to building solutions that are hyper productive, our vision is to minimise the time customers spend in applications so they can maximise their time focusing on their specialised work and creating value. Achieving this requires more than just humans and Artificial Intelligence working together. It also requires the right understanding of industry subsegments and individual workflows. As a company built around industry specificity, Infor understands the context of how people work so that we can build those best practices into our products to help enhance productivity. Infor GenAI is designed with this in mind,” comments Soma Somasundaram, president and chief technology officer at Infor.
