In short, Infor claims it can do just about anything.

Fourth Shift ERP software delivers advanced Internet functionality, such as e-centers (Customer Center, Supplier Center, and Employee center), which streamline transactions and information gathering. The software is supported by highly-capable technical and application support professionals who are dedicated to helping clients maximize their manufacturing software ROI. Infor claims it offers a rapid implementation process that gets many Fourth Shift ERP software customers up and running in 90-120 days.
