The product is designed for financial managers to quickly access information, manage internal changes, and remain compliant to regulatory environments.
Labelled version number 6, the platform has a new feature called Workspace, a component based on Microsoft Sharepoint that provides a single sign-on to multiple Infor applications, improving usability.
A Web-based user interface has been introduced, offering remote access, reducing time to access information.
The FMS SunSystems Enterprise has a new reporting tool that improves reporting capabilities and a report designer that comes with a library of standard reports. Infor said the function can help managers make decisions with less reliance on IT.
Another new feature is an ad-hoc reporting functionality from Infor PM Query & Analysis component that provides in-context operational intelligence that aids real-time decision making.
FMS SunSystems Enterprise is compliant with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) which Singapore is racing to achieve by 1 January 2012, according to Anthony Lam, vice president, financial solutions group, Asia Pacific and Japan, Infor Global Solutions.
“In fact, Infor FMS SunSystems Enterprise has been audited and certified compliant with IFRS by independent finance audit firm, BDO Audit & Assurance,” said Lam.
