We once used a well known Infor competitor for financial reporting, but it lacked the flexibility we desired because it required extensive programming and data maintenance. The Infor Financial Reporting tool (F9) allows easy, repeatable financial reports to be generated on a monthly/quarterly/annual basis with the input of very few data elements.

With budget, forecast, and actual data F9 is a one-stop-shop for our financial reporting and analysis needs.
