Infor Implementation Accelerators: a 60:30:10 process framework

Not all processes are created equal. At the same time should businesses reinvent the wheel when implementing a solution. 

With decades of experience working with people, processes and products in multiple industries, Infor has released more than 26 types of implementation accelerators (IAs) for more than 16 industries and products globally. These implementation accelerators speed up the solution implementation process by delivering preconfigured application suites. 

With industry expertise in fashion, F&B, and manufacturing, Fortude can help you develop an IA project plan.

To enable this, Infor uses several tools and technologies: Infor ION (for workflows, integrations, and notifications), Mongoose (for extending the standard functionality), Web SDK and External Interfaces (to build complete out-of-the-box software to complement the core ERP),
