ERP by Department

“There is a lot to love about this software. Data loading is very easy with the Excel import. You can also export to Excel to manipulate data. Dataviews and Workbench Suite is a nice tool. We also could tell that Infor listens to customer feedback and develops the software based on that feedback which is a huge plus.”

Deployment Options

SyteLine has been continually upgraded towards the goal of making it more user-friendly and more Cloud-friendly. SyteLine can be deployed in the cloud, as CloudSuite Industrial (CSI). CSI includes a complete suite of products to ensure your success. Infor manages the servers, security, and user access. There is also an option to run it on-premise using SyteLine. This gives complete control over the back end of the system. Most ERP systems can only be deployed one way or the other. Our ERP can be deployed in either.

Personalization & Upgrades

The core technology of SyteLine makes it easy to personalize. We hesitate to use the word modify, because historically when you modify software you’ve locked yourself into that version of the software. With the new toolset, you can be on SyteLine 9 and upgrade to SyteLine 10 and your personalizations just move along with little effort.

Infor handles upgrades with Version 10, which is referred to as “single version”. There will be no new versions of SyteLine 10. Instead, Infor will release monthly builds of SyteLine 10 that contain patches and enhancements.  When the enhancements are non-invasive, they will automatically appear in the system.  When the enhancements are invasive, meaning they may change the way you use the software, they will be installed but turned off. The system administrator can choose when to turn them on, if at all.  After the monthly builds your personalizations will just move along with the builds with minor effort. This can be done with both the SaaS and the On-prem versions, the only difference being that with On-Premise you selectively download and install the builds when you want to. On SaaS,  the builds are pushed to the users automatically.

DataViews

This is a friendly end-user reporting tool that allows any user to take the data in the system, create columnar reports with sub-totals, details, filters, and custom columns. DataViews report layouts can be saved and run as needed. The IT group can put an interface to the DataViews so that you can run them automatically in a background queue.

Those reports, once set up, could print to a printer or email to a user. A report can be set up in the system and you could specify the report to run every Sunday night for the prior week and be automatically emailed to the user. As an executive of the firm, no matter where you are, you still have that management report that you need to run the business. With this system, there is no need to call the office and have the report run and sent. You will have access to it automatically.

CloudSuite Industrial is high tech and connected

User Interface

Navigation within SyteLine is incredibly straightforward.  Menus are available that organize the system into logical modules.  Also included are Role Based Home Pages so users can start in a home page with key information and links to the areas of the software that role would typically access.

Frequently visited forms can be bookmarked for quick access.  And with the “Open a Form” tool, you can go directly to any form in the system by just typing a portion of its name and selecting from the list.

Searching for data within SyteLine is more straightforward and requires fewer keystrokes than any competitor.  You can easily filter any form to bring back records based on your selection criteria.  You can also search for all related records system wide.

The Versatility of CloudSuite Industrial

The technology and usability features of CSI are built on top of a deeply functional and robust ERP system. CSI can benefit a broad array of manufacturing styles, from engineer-to-order to build-to-stock, from job shops to large project control, from single locations to multi-site multi-national operations. It is nice having an ERP system that you won’t outgrow.

As with cost, implementation time is also dependent on the same factors mentioned above. LogicData offers multiple implementation methodologies that can be adapted to your specific needs and resource availability. Considering a very basic implementation of just the core functionality of SyteLine, and employing a LogicData managed implementation approach, time to value can be achieved in as little as 3-4 months. A full implementation of all core SyteLine functionality utilizing a standard implementation approach, and assuming full client resource availability, can generally be completed in 6 to 8 months. To determine the best implementation methodology and timeline estimate for your specific situation, please contact us.

The cost of software and implementation will vary based on many factors such as user count, functionality requirements, deployment, implementation methodology, customization, data conversion, integration, and internal resources. However, for a basic configuration of SyteLine annual subscription pricing can begin at approximately $18,000 annually for a minimum of 10 users or a one-time cost of $20,000 plus annual maintenance for a minimum of 5 users in an on-premise deployment. A primarily self-directed implementation of such a basic configuration, although not recommended, can likely be achieved for approximately $30,000. LogicData recommends our standard “train-the-trainer” implementation approach which is estimated to start at roughly $65,000 for a basic implementation. For further information on pricing specific to your needs, please contact us.
