Advanced Technology. Easy to Use Solution.

Infor ERP SyteLine is 100% built and deployed on Microsoft .NET, a proven, reliable, well-supported and dynamic platform.  The SyteLine .NET Framework that is built using Microsoft .NET allows for low support costs and the ability to easily adapt SyteLine to unique needs. Additionally, SyteLine’s Framework is tightly integrated with the Infor SOA to achieve seamless interoperability with other applications and low cost of maintaining these integrations.

Microsoft .NET
.NET is the Microsoft Web services strategy to connect information, people, systems, and devices through software. Integrated across the Microsoft platform. .NET technology provides the ability to quickly build, deploy, manage and use connected, security-enhanced solutions with Web services. .NET-connected solutions enable businesses to integrate their systems more rapidly and in a more agile manner and help them realize the promise of information anytime, anywhere, on any device.  Building SyteLine using 100% new .NET technology provides: 

  •  The same look and feel as Microsoft Office applications like Excel and Outlook
  •  Tight integration with Microsoft applications like Excel and Outlook, and other .NET apps
  •  Simple maintainance and low cost of ownership
  •  Easy access over the internet, using very little bandwidth

Infor ERP SyteLine .NET Framework
Infor ERP SyteLine features a unique software architecture that provides a cost-effective and efficient way to extend and adapt the solution to fit your changing business requirements. With Infor ERP SyteLine, your IT resource needs are minimized because the framework is based on the standard Microsoft .NET platform.   The SyteLine .NET Framework provides:

  •  The ability to extend and adapt the Infor ERP SyteLine application, to a virtually unlimited extent, with no or minimal programming and with automatic upgrades of your changes
  •  Easy and powerful integration to your other software
  •  A user interface that is rich and easy to use and maximizes employee productivity
  •  An Application Event System, with rules that initiate workflows, alerts, and approval processes,
  •  Simplicity and flexibility of installation, providing a zero maintenance Web based client

The Infor ERP SyteLine Framework allows you to extend or modify any screen or business process without writing or modifying programs.  The SyteLine Framework defines the applications behavior with metadata, so that customizations are stored as data rather than source code modifications.  The metadata approach keeps most customizations separate from the base application and therefore the customizations are automatically upgraded to new versions.  The SyteLine Framework allows you to:

  •  Enable external applications to access or update SyteLine data and processes
  •  Integrate other software directly into the SyteLine screens
  •  Add completely new functionality including unlimited data and business processes
  •  Gain interoperability with customers and suppliers
  •  Integrate with the Infor Open SOA

Infor Open SOA (Service-Oriented Architecture)
"Web services" is an approach that helps the business connect with its customers, partners, and employees; helps the business work more efficiently with its partners and suppliers; and unlocks information so it can flow to every employee who needs it. Infor Open SOA (Service-Oriented Architecture) is Infor's implementation of Web Services for interoperability, innovation, and evolution across all product lines. With Infor Open SOA, customers can easily add, change, upgrade or modify solutions as their business requirements change. By enabling our proven, business-specific solutions to plug into our customers' ecosystems, we make it possible to leverage the benefits of a service-oriented architecture without the disruption of having to replace an entire IT infrastructure.

Infor Open SOA software technology enables our customers to introduce new functionality and technology in a cost-effective, evolutionary way when the time is right for them. As an integral part of the Infor solution offering, there is no additional cost for Infor Open SOA and no need to undergo a major software re-implementation in order to take advantage of SOA business benefits.

Infor ERP SyteLine SaaS Offering
Infor ERP SyteLine SaaS (Software as a Service) offering is a multi-tenant deployment of SyteLine that is installed and managed at Infor’s Data Center so that users only need a PC and an internet connection to access SyteLine and Infor takes care of all the system administration. The customer has no upfront software or hardware cost, but rather pays for the software as a monthly service fee per user.  Unlike other SaaS offerings, the SyteLine SaaS software and technology is the exact same software and technology as the on-premise SyteLine.  SyteLine customers can migrate between the delivery models (SaaS, Hosted, On-Premise) as they chose, getting the benefits of each delivery method when it is appropriate for the businesses needs. Also, unlike other SaaS ERP offerings, SyteLine SaaS can be customized by each customer.
