More Infor LX Pros »

"SAP has provided a much more integrated platform for managing our manufacturing business.""This is a robust and feature-rich solution.""The architecture of the solution overall is great. It's great for development, testing, and production. I've worked with solutions where the architecture wasn't as strong and it was a disaster.""The transactional integration of operations is the best-recommended feature of this product. It provides integration of all operational modules.""The most valuable features are that it's very customizable and it's flexible.""It is the best solution in the class of ERP products.""It provides great visibility into the details of enterprise resource planning.""The system can be integrated with other SAP functionalities - such as finance, production, sales, marketing, HR, et cetera, and can also be customized to become a model that's specifically designed for my business.

More Infor LX Cons »

"This solution could be made more user-friendly for development teams.""The user interface needs to be improved.""The system is very big. It is not exactly user-friendly, due to the fact that it's so massive and complex.""The version that we are using lacks in reporting. The reporting feature needs to be constructed more in this product. There can be better scope for mobility. They could include the technical development of reports instead of depending completely on programming. The programming method needs to be easy.""SAP ERP needs to be more innovative when it comes to areas like mobility and the internet.""The product does not update budgeting based on exchange rates which is important for BPM.""It is very expensive to customize to meet compliance with regulations in some countries.""The solution is quite expensive. They need to work on the pricing to make it more reasonable."
