Infor, a provider of business application software, announced this week that they have made improvements to their Infor M3 product, including the development of Infor M3 Fresh Food Planner (FFP), a new application for companies that produce ultra-fresh food with shelf-life counted in days rather than weeks and months.
Infor M3 FFP is designed to deliver a new way of planning fresh food production using the concept of "forecast pacing" to provide detailed insight into current and historical flow of orders, down to the hourly level. This helps manufacturers refine forecasts within the tool. FFP is designed to run directly on-top of the operational ERP database providing instant access to live data about current demand, supply and stock levels. The new app offers the ability to adjust forecasted demand and plan production within the same application, giving fresh food manufacturers total control over a rapidly changing situation.
