"The connectors, performance, and knowledgebase availability can be improved."

More Infor LX Cons »

"It is being decommissioned.""The product is standardised across industries so it is not a good fit for all types of sectors.""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.""There is no Arabic interface in Microsoft Business Central, which is a big weak point.""They should include some modules related to solving customer problems or resolving support tickets from our customers — like a help desk for ERPs."
