Infor SyteLine ERP Manufacturing Software: Multi-Site Capabilities
The “Centralized” approach allows all data and programs to be managed on centralized servers with remote access using a Web browser, Citrix, or Windows Terminal Services. Shared data is synchronized immediately across all sites.
The “Autonomous but Integrated” approach allows separate sites using the Infor SyteLine ERP Manufacturing ERP system to have their own site database that is synchronized with the other sites via the Internet. The sites do NOT need a full-time or fast connection to each other as the “shared data” is synchronized in a queued fashion, achieving near real-time integration. This allows for greatly reduced cost in network connectivity.
Multi-Site, Multi-Plant, Multi-Company
Infor SyteLine ERP is a fully functional multi-site/multi-plant, multi-national product that serves our customers all over the world. Businesses with multiple manufacturing “Sites”, “Plants”, distribution “Warehouses”, or company “Entities” that serve common customers, transfer inventory between sites, or need integration of operational information can operate more efficiently with Infor SyteLine ERP. Most ERP applications treat multiple sites and entities as non-integrated databases requiring separate logins to access data and offering only basic financial consolidation. This approach is only adequate for single entity businesses with local warehouses or multi-entity companies with no inter-company transactions or cross-site visibility requirements. Multiple sites with inter-company transactions and information sharing requirements can be managed more efficiently with the Infor SyteLine ERP Industrial’s (SyteLine) Multi-site functions.
