Sun Accounting Software: Features and Benefits You Need to Know

If you’re looking for some I.T.-based help with your business finances, then Sun accounting software – namely Infor SunSystems – and the wider ecosystem of other Infor tools that support the proper use of SunSystems need to be on your radar. In this blog the TouchstoneFMS team will take a look at all of these individual tools and show you how they help your company, as well as telling you more about the support that we provide, and what makes TouchstoneFMS the prudent choice as your Infor implementation and support partner.

Infor OS and Infor SunSystems: A Powerful Combination for Business Intelligence

Infor OS: The Foundation for Intelligent Business Operations

Infor OS (Operating Service) is a flexible, cloud-based platform designed to provide a modern, unified user experience for Infor’s suite of enterprise applications – which includes Sun accounting software. It serves as a digital hub that connects, automates, and integrates various business processes, systems, and analytics tools in a single, coherent environment. Infor OS offers a range of capabilities, including workflow automation, collaboration tools, advanced analytics, artificial intelligence, and integration with third-party systems. By streamlining and simplifying the user experience, Infor OS helps organisations maximise the value of their technology investments and drive digital transformation.

Infor OS is therefore a comprehensive, cloud-based operating platform that provides a range of tools and services designed to help organisations streamline their operations and make data-driven decisions. With Infor OS, businesses can:

  • Integrate data from various sources, such as your Sun accounting software, CRM applications, and other databases.
  • Analyse and visualise data using built-in analytics tools, including Infor d/EPM.
  • Collaborate and share insights using a unified interface, improving communication and decision-making across the organisation.
Infor SunSystems: A Leading Financial Management Solution

Infor SunSystems is the main element in a Sun accounting software solution. It is the software responsible for providing many of the financial functionalities and tools that such a solution offers. SunSystems is a comprehensive, scalable financial management solution designed to meet the needs of growing businesses and organisations across various industries.

It is a powerful and flexible platform that delivers real-time financial and operational insights, which businesses can then use to help them make more informed decisions and improve overall performance. Infor SunSystems offers a wide range of features, including general ledger, accounts payable and receivable, fixed assets, budgeting, and reporting. Its modular design allows organisations to customise the solution to meet their unique requirements and adapt to changing business needs.

In a nutshell, Infor SunSystems enables businesses to:

  • Streamline financial processes, ensuring compliance and reducing the risk of errors.
  • Have a better understanding of financial performance, and the data and insights they need to make better business decisions.
  • Adapt to changing market conditions and regulatory requirements with a flexible and scalable solution.
SunSystems Cloud: Access Your Financial Data Anytime, Anywhere

However, these days businesses have a choice as to where their Sun accounting software is installed and how they access it. The paragraph above describes a more traditional, local deployment of Sun accounting software, with Infor SunSystems installed on a company’s own hardware. However, today the same package of functionalities provided by Sun accounting software can also be accessed via ‘SunSystems Cloud‘ – a cloud-based version of Infor SunSystems, which makes it possible for businesses to access their financial data and tools from anywhere, at any time.

Using SunSystems Cloud, organisations can:

  • Reduce IT costs and complexity by hosting their financial management solution in the cloud.
  • Ensure data security and compliance with industry-leading security features and protocols.
  • Access real-time financial data and insights from any device, improving decision-making and collaboration.
Infor d/EPM: Advanced Analytics and Performance Management

Infor d/EPM is an advanced analytics and performance management solution that integrates seamlessly with Infor OS and Sun accounting software. With Infor d/EPM, businesses can:

  • Gain insights into their financial and operational performance through customisable dashboards and reports.
  • Leverage advanced analytics tools, such as predictive modelling and machine learning, to identify trends and opportunities.
  • Monitor and manage key performance indicators (KPIs) and set targets to drive continuous improvement.
