INFOR CloudSuite Industrial



Go from engineering to manufacturing 5x faster!

Here’s the problem!  

You are a manufacturing company, and you do lots of engineering work.  You create new and update existing items, bills of material (BOMs), and routings.  You are doing this work today manually or, at best, you have a multi-step workflow that requires a spreadsheet, macros, and an import or copy and paste routine. Or worse, you tried another integration that didn't live up to the hype!

 That process costs you up to $100,000 per year in data entry, BOM errors, rework expenses, and demoralizes your staff who would rather spend time designing and manufacturing than entering data.    When a $1.00 Bill of Material mistake can cost up to 100X more if it gets to the customer and when engineering services are billed at $130 per hour, it does not take long to see that the current process won’t work anymore.

It’s time to get your engineering and manufacturing talking.... with CADTALK ERP!


CADTALK ERP is a completely off-the-shelf, intelligent, bi-directional integration between your CAD, PDM, or PLM and either your cloud deployment of Infor CloudSuite Industrial (CSI) or on-premises Infor SyteLine ERP.  CADTALK ERP reads data from any CAD, PDM, or PLM application transforming the engineering bill of materials (eBOM) into manufacturing bills of material (MBOM)). 

 As an Infor marketplace partner, CADTALK ERP supports many areas from Item, current materials, and current operations to CSI/SyteLine Jobs.  The integration creates new and updates existing Infor CSI/SyteLine items, materials and operations, while identifying and tracking all changes and revisions between engineering and manufacturing.  All of this in an easy to use, intuitive interface without ever logging into the screens of Infor CSI/SyteLine. 

CADTALK ERP is so much more than an import and mapping utility.  The CADTALK framework offers standardized, in-depth integrations coupled with expression-based, low-code, configurable intelligence that gives you the power to integrate your systems in hours and days rather than months and years.   CADTALK ERP focuses on the entire engineering to manufacturing hand-off by supporting every aspect of the bill of material from items current operations and current materials to labor calculations, scrap percentages, vendors, manufacturers and more. 

Bundled with CADTALK DFM, you will eliminate manual data entry, reduce errors, and get more value out of your Acumatica with accurate and consistent data transformation.
