Infor Drives Supply Chain Efficiency from Order Inception to Delivery

Infor SCM Transportation Management 9.0 Provides Fully Integrated Transportation Management Solution to Companies of All Size

Atlanta, GA, October 31, 2007 --( Infor today announced the availability of Infor SCM Transportation Management 9.0, an integrated global transportation and trade compliance solution that simplifies the complex nature of global trade and enables enterprising companies to outpace their competition. SCM Transportation Management 9.0 manages inbound and outbound transportation of products -- from order inception to delivery -- for organizations in the retail, distribution and manufacturing industries. The announcement was made at the 2007 Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals Annual Conference, where Infor is a sponsor.

As globalization continues to drive the economic landscape, it is vital that companies have a complete understanding and view of the entire transportation process. From the first to the last mile, SCM Transportation Management 9.0 integrates transportation optimization with management onto a single platform. The enhanced solution provides increased visibility and control of inventory, costs, transportation planning, execution, and international trade compliance processes across multiple transportation modes, including truck, ocean, rail, air, and intermodal.

“Globalization demands that companies cross new boundaries to remain competitive, grow and increase profitability,” said Eric Nilsson, senior director, product management, Infor. “Traditionally, a fully integrated transportation solution was only available for large enterprises. Infor SCM Transportation Management 9.0 provides companies of all size the business-specific functionality they require from a stable, global provider, and levels the playing field for small and medium sized businesses.”

SCM Transportation Management 9.0 enables carriers and suppliers to use a single system and access the information in real-time to manage the complete lifecycle of trade management. This allows suppliers to monitor the status of shipments, and shippers to ensure rates are accurate and goods are shipped as efficiently and economically as possible.

The latest version provides key enhancements including embedded optimization, routing compliance, additional freight payment support, Sarbanes-Oxley compliance reporting, and enhanced freight rate maintenance tools. In conjunction with the SCM Transportation Management 9.0 release, Infor also extended the country coverage for trade compliance from 50 to 120 countries through a new trade data partnership with Management Dynamics Inc., a leading provider of global trade management solutions. The enhancements lead to reduced delivery times, improved customer service, improved regulatory compliance, increased responsiveness to the supply chain and partners, and decreased inventory requirements.

Infor’s Supply Chain Management solutions enable companies to improve their profitability, competitiveness and growth through network design, demand and supply chain planning, manufacturing optimization, warehousing, transportation management and supply chain analytics. By synchronizing cycles of demand, supply and replenishment, Infor’s solutions allow its customers to move product to their customers quickly and cost-effectively.
