Infor OS is an operating system that powers the modern enterprise. It brings together core business functions into modules that can be implemented quickly and used to create customised workflows for critical tasks involving different users in your organisation.
The Infor OS approach brings numerous advantages for users of Infor SunSystems.
For one, this makes building simple applications easier than ever before. Whether you are looking for a mobile app to track your materials or an interface that helps your business run smoothly, the software is available to build it quickly.
You can also put together existing modules into a customised app that automates the entire process. And then there is Infor Ming.le for designing and building robust, enterprise-grade applications with no coding required.

11. Ensure compliance with Industry Standards
Since Infor SunSystems is an industry-specific solution, it already complies with the latest industry standards, making it easier for you to subsequently comply with changes.
12. Expedite consolidation with zero errors
As money flows into and out of your business, accounts are updated automatically within the Sun accounting system to help you achieve up-to-date, accurate financial records.
This helps you track your business performance accurately and avoid errors that can lead to inaccurate or delayed reporting.
With the software, you can easily consolidate data across various business units for more streamlined operations, prompt decision-making and accurate financial reports.
