What is most valuable?* Write-back functionality: This allows us to adjust calculated figures and be updated by the user through a report. * Import Master: A useful ETL tool. (It's better than… more »
How has it helped my organization?I joined this company a year ago and Infor PM was already here. It was useful for consolidating data from subsidiaries and having global reports.
What needs improvement?There is plenty of room for improvement: Mainly ease of implement, configuration, and use. For our business, I don’t think it was the best. I likely would have come to a… more »
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?Don’t go for it because it is cheaper! The bitterness of poor quality remains, long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?We did not use a solution previous to this one. Infor PM was implemented here for years before I joined. We switched from Infor to Tableau. We still use Infor PM for… more »
What other advice do I have?They have inexpensive licenses, but it costs much more to implement and maintain. It has a very small community, a lack of available, resources, and we struggled to find… more »
Which other solutions did I evaluate?I evaluated and chose other options as a replacement for Infor PM: These included QlikView, SAP BO, Board, Birst, Sisense, and Tableau. We chose Tableau.

What is most valuable?A valuable feature is the Excel & VB front-end support. As I worked on this, the input/output, and reporting (especially Ad-hoc) functions are perfect and very helpful for a user.
How has it helped my organization?We were using this for the payroll process, from time keeping to the payroll run. It provide us a great opportunity to work with a secure platform and deal with a large amount of numerical entries.
What needs improvement?Only sometimes, there are server start-up issues.
What other advice do I have?This is a perfect, secure, safe and fast product. The great thing about it is that it has a multiple user interface and the ad-hoc reporting is amazing.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?We pay 20% of the original cost as a maintenance fee but I don't know the original costs.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?No, for this purpose we used only Excel sheets before we implemented Infor BI.
What other advice do I have?For planning and consolidation this is a perfect choice. You have the option to design your own logic via dimensions, cubes, rules and dimension hierarchies. And, you can lock down user input via… more »
Which other solutions did I evaluate?No, we are Infor Channel partner (local branch) so there was not really any intention to implement something else.

What needs improvement?A web-based version would provide greater usability and I believe is still in the development pipeline.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?Sorry I don't have access to the original setup costs and the day to day costs are variable as we continue to develop the system. We will shortly be implementing the Infor… more »

The Inventory module needs to be improved, however, the integration with other apps is user friendly.
What is most valuable?Integration with other software applications is so user friendly and also it's a single ledger designed system. Also, the multi-currency feature is superb as well.
How has it helped my organization?It has really helped us in getting repo. With the integration of Infor Q&A application which is like a companion software with SunSystems, it has made it so easy to spool out report from SunSystems to a spreadsheet in Excel, etc.
What needs improvement?The Inventory module is not so strong when compared with the other software applications in its category! The integration between the Inventory and the Purchasing module is not very "user friendly".
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?I not used any other solution but I have attended demos for many.
What other advice do I have?They should state out their requirements and expectations clearly.

The robustness of the Infocubes is valuable but it has low flexibility to change the model once implemented.
What is most valuable?The robustness of the Infocubes, and the possibility of integrating both strong data analysis characteristics with a pleasant aesthetic features.
How has it helped my organization?The client where we implemented the Planning model in Infor PM previously used Excel spreadsheets for all of their Planning processes. Infor PM has brought the typical PM tools advantages in this space.
What needs improvement?Flexibility to modify an existing Infocube, and better integration with other ETL tools on the market.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?I worked for a consulting company which implemented Planning solutions using different tools on the market, such as Board, SAP BPC, and Hyperion.
What other advice do I have?Dedicate time to the Functional and Technical Specs, given the low flexibility to change the model once it has been implemented.

The bigger the DB with accelerators the more unstable it is but it gives you enough options to implement BI processes.

How has it helped my organization?If you are using only spreadsheets and have to download your data from various sources then you will have to reconcile these to build reports that make sense, this product will improve your life. You will spend less time building your… more »
What needs improvement?The following features need to be improved - * The rule engine * Application studio web-server * The web-server, because it is still slow to load the reports which is why the designer has to simplify the reports that would work perfectly on… more »
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?I previously used Excel. Even if after the first months Excel seemed more capable in terms of modelling (you can do virtually anything in Excel), in the end when your model is fully automated and an additional item or driver will not ruin… more »
What other advice do I have?Compromises are key. Remember that it is a budgeting and forecasting tool, so you can't have a complex model that is simple to use, easy to maintain and fast all at the same time.
