The definition provided by Infor for SunSystems is that it represents an integrated financial management system, purchasing, inventory and sales system that is used by more than 9000 clients worldwide.
What I can say about it is that SunSystems is a great integrated system for small and middle businesses even for those that have multi-site subsidiaries. It is very easy to setup, flexible enough and has enough resources left to add further developments long after the implementation team has left.
It is great at financial and operational reporting and it enables management to take timely swift and precise decision. Information data available in the systems database can be extracted, processed and delivered to management in a very flexible manner.
There are many articles available on the internet and even a forum for SunSystems enthusiast to share solutins for the most diverse problems and the system itself is evolving constantly to get better and better in satisfying the needs of all users and business industries.
Business Inteligence systems like Infor ION can be implemented to unify and integrate financial with operational and public available data in order to deliver an integrated structure of information that is both accurate and ready to be used in decision making.
