Built-in fleet management and manufacturing functions highlight asset management system

The latest version of Infor’s enterprise asset management system allows users to address business-specific needs without requiring customized software.

07/11/2007


Infor recently unveiled EAM Enterprise Edition, the latest version of its flagship enterprise asset management solution. The new version includes built-in functionality specifically designed for the fleet management and manufacturing industries, among others.
“EAM Enterprise Edition has domain expertise built-in, addressing the reality that different kinds of businesses have different asset management needs,” said Marty Osborn, senior director, enterprise asset management solutions for Infor.
Business-specific functionality is important because it allows companies to access built-in features instead of highly customizing a generic software package. Bentley College, Waltham, MA, recently sought a solution to improve the management of its campus facilities.
“We have improved many facets of our operation including, work order productivity, manpower scheduling and preventive maintenance, setting us apart and dramatically improving our facilities operation,” said Tom Kane, assistant director of facilities operations, Bentley College. “Infor’s enterprise asset management solution provides us with functionality specifically for our facilities.”
EAM Enterprise Edition’s configuration manager enables customers to create and store their own configurations. The configuration store removes the administrative tasks of moving from one configuration to another and allows companies to quickly deploy settings from test to training to production systems.
