Infor CloudSuite Helps Automotive Manufacturers Achieve Regulatory Compliance in a Fast Changing Industry


The automotive industry has changed significantly over the past decade, and it’s not just the vehicles that are different.


Economic and environmental challenges have changed the way vehicles must perform. New technologies like electric and autonomous vehicles and connective systems have shifted consumer demands. Less visibly, an ever-growing list of regulations and industry standards have required automotive and specialty vehicle manufacturers to alter how they do business. Companies are challenged to be competitive and cost-effective in the face of increasingly complex supply chains and growing demand for transparency.

Compliance is crucial for survival in this new age of auto manufacturing. An ERP designed for the automotive industry makes compliance much easier.
