I am a co-founder at a small company. I am researching ERP solutions and would like to hear feedback from people who have implemented Infor M3 ERP.
Infor M3 is a solid ERP, I worked with it prior to the Lawson/Infor merger. Very strong in process manufacturing with a good history in Food & Beverage, Life Sciences, and other verticals. S3 is used more in healthcare and government - but it's important to realize the two formerly Lawson products are very different. (M3 was formerly Movex, a Swedish company acquired by Lawson).
In any case, M3 is really good but can scale up to Tier One sizes with similar costs. Infor has turned a corner as a company and is solidly backing M3, so I suspect sales and development will both improve in the years to come.
But like with anything else, ERP fit is a combination of what the software can do paired with what your business needs it to do - and I have no info on your vertical or industry so I can't speak to that. Your company is listed with 11-50 companies, which is normally much smaller than the average M3 company - we were doing a lot of global multinational implementations when I was there. But if the cost works for you, including staffing to support M3, it could very well be a great option.
What do you like most about Infor M3?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the community!
I work for a mid-sized AEC company.
We currently use an older version of BST Enterprise. Which ERP systems do you recommend that would be the most compatible?
Thanks! I appreciate the help.
