Infor announces new version of Workforce Management

11th October 2012

Infor has announced the availability of Infor Workforce Management 6.0, the next generation of Infor’s workforce management solution.  The new release has more than 100 industry-driven enhancements for improved usability, enhanced mobility, as well as industry-specific modules for task management and scheduling.




The new version sports an overhauled, consumer-grade interface and a new Task Management Module for the Retail Industry. Task Management (TM) is a new integrated module available on the Infor WFM 6.0 platform that provides innovative task creation and management tools. Specifically, TM includes tools for creating new tasks, a flexible rule-based, task-distributed engine that offers multiple options to notify managers when new tasks are circulated, and tracking capability to help ensure that tasks are completed on time. This, says Infor, significantly cuts down administrative time and allows staff to be more productive with real-time information.

There are also scheduling tools for the healthcare industry in version 6.0.  The Multi-View Scheduler (MVS) module improves shift assignment, relief management, and communications with employees.

Infor have also made a number of mobility enhancements.  Infor Workbrain Mobility offers both manager and employee self-service, to deliver actionable workforce information and processes virtually anywhere employees go by providing views for notification, timesheets, employee lists, and schedules. It offers staff the opportunity to reduce the time spent on administrative tasks via quick and simplified tools, increasing efficiency and reducing redundancies. 

“Maintaining an organised, engaged workforce is vital to the health of any organisation,” said Mitri Dahdaly, product manager for WFM, Infor. “Knowing this recipe for success, Infor’s latest version of Infor WFM arms staff and managers with the information they need to focus on critical job-related tasks and aligns long-term workforce planning and daily operations to the organisation’s overall business strategy.”
