Infor SyteLine ERP for Aerospace & Defense Manufacturing
As a manufacturer, supplier, or contractor in the aerospace & defense (A&D) industry, the challenges you face are forcing you to rethink the way you do business. Old processes and approaches just don’t cut it anymore. Neither do legacy ERP solutions. You need your IT solutions to be as agile and responsive as the aircraft and components you build, supply, and service.
With global competition and market pressure escalating, it is more important than ever to have an ERP system that’s up to the challenge. But finding a way to modernize your business quickly, easily, and cost-effectively hasn’t historically been an easy thing to do. Meet Infor SyteLine ERP for Aerospace & Defense, a ready-to-run solution, built to meet the needs of A&D companies. It provides deep, proven capabilities in key areas such as product design, program management, regulation compliance, supply chain visibility, manufacturing production, global finance, and maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) service.
Even better, the solution is delivered in the cloud, which helps ensure efficiency, cost savings, built-in support for global operations, as well as security that follows industry leading best practice protocols.
Infor’s Government SaaS environment is designed with the controls in place to meet the requirements mandated by the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP®) for a moderate impact level. In addition to FedRAMP, AWS GovCloud (US) adheres to US International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) requirements, Impact Levels 2 and 4 of Department of Defense systems, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and NIST 800-53. Adopting FedRAMP-authorized solutions that already implement the required security practices can provide an easier path to certification at a lower cost and may even enable smaller companies to target a higher Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) maturity level.
