The system seems passable for the price point.
My primary dislike is Infor as a company. It's difficult dealing with them. There seems to be a few humans over there but I often get heavy handed responses. Don't bother thinking they will budge an inch for anything. Ever.
One particular example involves storage. They say you get 100 gigs and in the contract it says, "Infor CRM SaaS storage subscription 100 GB". Great, one of the reasons I picked this platform over Salesforce is because of data overage charges. Now the database I'm migrating from is 11.4 gigabytes. Seems like i'm in the clear right? Nope. It is impossible to know this as an outsider, but that 100 gigs of storage is FILE STORAGE, it is NOT available for your operating database. They have a 10 gig partition for the database engine, and that's what you are stuck with.
I pointed this out that the contract says I have 100 gigs of cloud storage and it would be impossible for me to know that my database size was limited to 10 gigs. I asked if we could increase that size and I get:
“It is not our process, as all new customers get the designed AMI. The designed AMI is considered standard, and when more space is required or requested it must be purchased. "
Help and training are also surprisingly expensive and lackluster. When I'd pose questions to their normal support (infor Xtreme) they will point you to a $3000 course that barely covers the topic. So I signed up for a Developing for the Web course. They didn't have enough instructors for their web-video class (think Udemy $10 course btw) and I was provided someone that is not an expert in the topic. When I asked that guy questions during the course he got back to me the next day with an answer that he couldn't elaborate on when I had follow up questions. There were show stopping bugs during the workshop that I wasted 4 or 5 hours on before the guy told me the next day, "oh we know about that one, you have to do ...". Great, thanks for giving me a heads up in advance. In fact, there were many bugs that I learned about that need workarounds.
Now that I have received an official certification, you'd think you'd be able to get some help now right? No, I get referred to my business partner. My original business partner charged $175 / hr and couldn't answer my coding questions appropriately. So get this, I spend $3000 on a course, then when I need help I get pointed to a business partner that charges $175/hr and doesn't have the knowledge to answer my questions.
As to dealing with Infor and your business partners. I use the plural, partners, because I've had the (dis)pleasure of needing to swap out business partners because in all honesty, one person cannot know and understand the entirety of this system that has had multiple homes with various development companies.
We've been paying Infor for their system for 8 months. We've spent tens of thousands on development already and we had to scrap everything from our first business partner and now we have to start over.
I cannot in good conscious recommend this system. I hope this will change as time goes on. I had a disaster with them for about 8 months but they seem to be making an effort to at least listen to me. I'll update this review as time passes and if things get better.
We have realized zero benefits after 8 months of work.
