Infor: WhichPLM Evaluation 2019


The front cover of WhichPLM's evaluation of Infor Cloudsuite PLM for Fashion

WhichPLM is delighted to publish our first Supplier Evaluation of 2019 – a deep dive into what we believe to be the fashion and retail industry’s first multi-tenant enterprise solution: Infor’s CloudSuiteTM PLM for Fashion.

A herculean undertaking in terms of technical research and development, supported by a large-scale re-orientation of business processes and priorities, Infor’s new multi-tenant solution aligns closely with WhichPLM’s vision for the future of technology for the retail, footwear and apparel industry.  And we believe it has every chance of disrupting a market that is hungry for a new approach to PLM.

The solution is designed to cater to brands, retailers and manufacturing partners with as few as 20 users, but as many as thousands – all through configuring and scaling a single code track, ensuring that every customer, no matter their size, has access to the latest upgrades and innovations.  This may seem like a bold strategy – especially given the scale of the investment involved in bringing it to life – but it is one that appears perfectly calibrated to meet the evolving needs of today’s RFA PLM market.  Brands and retailers new to PLM are likely to be drawn by the solution’s broad feature set and ease and speed of implementation, while businesses with legacy solutions that have reached dead ends on the upgrade path will find considerable appeal in an enterprise-class platform where continuous upgrades (delivered monthly at the time this Evaluation was published) are guaranteed.

Infor has, for several years, maintained a relatively low profile in the RFA PLM space.  But while work remains to be done to bring all functionality over from its previous PLM product, we believe that the launch of CloudSuiteTM PLM for Fashion vaults the vendor back into an extremely competitive position.  Read the full Evaluation to find out more.
