Infor Announces Demand+ to Help Accelerate Supply Chain Forecasting
Infor, the industry cloud company, today announced Infor Demand+, a new application designed to help simplify and accelerate supply chain forecasting processes. Infor’s next-generation demand planning application leverages a modern intuitive planning experience combined with the latest Infor technology. Infor Demand+ is designed to help provide a more comprehensive picture of future demand by bringing manufacturers and distributors unique, sophisticated forecasting methods, which are combined with social collaboration and more efficient workflows.

Infor Demand+ is a module of Infor’s Integrated Business Planning solution, which delivers a rich technology framework providing interaction with Infor ION®, a purpose-built middleware and Infor Ming.le™, the social collaboration engine. Infor Demand+ includes an embedded Business Intelligence engine for supply chain analytics, as well as cloud, common planning structures, calendars, scenarios, and master data management.

The application serves as Infor’s next-generation demand planning solution and draws from a strong pedigree of established legacy supply chain solutions. It also offers unique improvements, including pre-configured industry templates, enhanced functionality in demand analytics and weekly forecasting, as well as the use of the latest Infor technology including the user experience and the expectation of future software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings.
