The Infor VISUAL suite of products, currently on version 9.0, is a business solution that provides manufacturers with a full suite of ERP applications. Infor Visual integrates Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS), Manufacturing Execution System (MES), Quality Management (TQM), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Business Intelligence (BI), and Project Management Costing capabilities (WBS, Estimate to Complete, Earned Value, MS Project integration & EAC).

This software is known for its superior graphical scheduling capability which has been refined through 20+ years of experience. The scheduling solution is based on a patented, finite scheduling algorithm that accounts for actual capacity, including scheduling expected material availability, sub-contractors, employees, tooling, fixtures and resources simultaneously.

Originally designed for the SMB Make to Order/ETO manufacturing environments, Infor VISUAL covers a broad range of industries including: Aerospace and Defense, ETO Equipment, Automotive, Fabrication, Specialty vehicles and Medical Devices. Infor VISUAL is used predominately by Make to Order/ETO manufacturers as opposed to Infor SyteLine which is more part number, MRP, Make to Stock manufacturing centric and for larger companies.

Visual primarily addresses the $10-100M market for engineer to order, make to order and configure to order manufacturers.
