Infor Releases Latest Version of Award Winning Workforce Management Solution

ATLANTA, GA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Nov 10, 2010 -- Infor, a leading provider of business applications, today announced the general availability of Infor WFM Workbrain version 5.1. In the retail industry alone, Workbrain touches over 4.7 million associates across 140 brands. The latest version is the direct result of feedback and requests from these customers. It advances core technology aspects of the platform to help customers efficiently manage their expanding global workforces, while simultaneously reducing total cost of ownership.



  • For more than a year, Infor has been working closely with an advisory board of key customers to learn what they need most from their workforce management (WFM) software.
  • Version 5.1 is a key step in the overall plan and roadmap created to address the advisory board's top feedback and priorities.
  • Computational efficiency was significantly improved, resulting from a massive code optimization effort aimed at reducing overall hardware requirements and associated costs.
  • In addition, a wide range of technical improvements were introduced to prepare for significant functionality enhancements in subsequent releases.
  • Performance benchmarking by Infor shows dramatic results, including the following:
    • Up to 80 percent reduction in time taken for file import routines
    • Up to 40 percent faster response times for key end-user functions
    • Up to 35 percent less CPU consumption during key tasks
