Infor understands unique process manufacturing challenges chemical companies face while taking a product from molecule to market. With Infor solutions most granular level data flows across functions to simplify work for each user. Here are some challenges Infor helps formulate effective solutions for:

Complex supply chain management

Global and local supply/demand push-pull, asset combinations, and new product introductions can lead to suboptimal planning.

Asset and operations throughput

Frequent downtime and unplanned shutdowns impact capacity utilization and profitability—and can often contribute to additional safety and compliance risks.

R&D spend and speed to market

Lack of standard processes and insights into costs and regulatory data results in missed opportunities and higher costs.

Workforce productivity

Attracting, training, and allocating talent is a challenge due to a shrinking manufacturing workforce and safety and process conformance requirements of a chemical plant.

Legacy platforms and applications

Siloed and customized solutions limit access to insights and analytics, and create barriers to adopting innovations such as smart manufacturing.

Micro-vertical expertise delivers business value faster
