Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It's not too hard to handle the initial setup.""LN is definitely a stable product. It's number one on Gartner's four quadrants."

More Infor LN Pros »

"If anyone is familiar with Microsoft products then they can handle it easily.""Support is really good.""It is stable, suitable for businesses, and covers all business needs.""There's a moderate amount of scalability available.""I like that it's a complete ERP solution from production level to branch level.""The stability is very good.""It is easy to use, and it has a great UI. It has very well-structured modules. In terms of setup and configuration, they're logically placed, which makes it easy for any user to pick up information and learn more about the system, rather than just be plain key users of that business operating system.""Dynamics AX provides a lot of functionality."

Cons
"While Infor LN incorporates the latest business processes and functions, there is always room for improvement as the business grows. In the new normal, it could stand to incorporate quite a few automation processes like the RPA and utilize machine learning in the Internet of Things.""The user interface needs to be improved."

More Infor LN Cons »

"It could be more scalable and stable. It would also be better if the interface were more integrated with the Microsoft ecosystem because 2012 is not really integrated.""They should include some modules related to solving customer problems or resolving support tickets from our customers — like a help desk for ERPs.""The integration could improve for the future.""There should be the capability for users to enhance the application by using a low-code or no-code product from the Microsoft family.""There are so many errors.""If I had to add something in the next release, it would probably be a mobile application for a sister application of Dynamics 365; not the ERP but the Dynamics 365 HR solution. It would definitely help if we could have Microsoft or a Microsoft partner introduce a mobile application for it.""It is being decommissioned.""The solution in general just needs a few quality improvements."

More Microsoft Dynamics AX Cons »

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Compared to other high-end ERP software, Infor LN's cost of ownership is lower. The difference isn't huge, though."

More Infor LN Pricing and Cost Advice »

"It is $180 to $200 per user per month with a minimum of 20 users, which makes selling the product a bit difficult.""I don't know how much this solution costs off the top of my head, but I know that the cloud and SaaS solutions are cheaper.""It has a pay-as-you-go subscription.""The pricing is expensive.""It's too expensive for customers to take this on themselves. As partners, we will buy this on behalf of the customers and then charge this value for each project."
