WHY CHOOSE CLOUD?
1. A FRAMEWORK THAT CAN SCALE - QUICKLY

Plus, you’ll be able to grant controlled access to emerging partners, suppliers, distributors, joint ventures, and other global entities.
2. FASTER IMPLEMENTATION AND TIME TO VALUE - BETTER ROI
With preconfigured yet flexible, industry-leading business processes, templates, training materials, tools, and simulations, you can deploy Infor CloudSuite Distribution in weeks or months—not as extended projects, like typical legacy ERP implementations. This can help your company realize cost savings, decrease project risks, heighten productivity, and increase profits sooner.
3. LOWER COST OF OWNERSHIP - SAVE MONEY
Reduce costs and implementation time by eliminating the need for servers, hardware, and maintenance resources. And because cloud delivery is a monthly subscription that can be expensed as an operating cost, you'll have more capital for strategic projects.
