Did you know that workers spend an estimated 28 percent of the workweek managing email and nearly 20 percent looking for internal information or tracking down colleagues who can help with specific tasks? This is where Infor Ming.le comes in to help!
Read on to learn more about social collaboration, how Infor Ming.le can help companies optimize performance and facilitate business process improvement (BPI), and where our team of expert Infor consultants can come in to help.
Understanding Innovative Social Collaboration Technologies
In a business context, deploying innovative social collaboration technologies can widen the exposure to corporate knowledge, monitor tasks for key stakeholders, streamline the flow of ideas and analytical data, and help employees improve processes, products, and services.
Unlike other organizational systems like Slack, Jive, or Yammer, something that sets Infor Ming.le apart is that it’s fully embedded within Infor’s enterprise systems (such as its ERP and financial platforms). The intelligent portal enables single sign-on and the ability to create personalized homepages.
This makes it easy for employees to communicate, collaborate, and share key screens and information like documents, plans, photos, and videos by giving them a centralized location from which to do so, one where all their activity is captured and easily searchable.

- Analytical data based on users’ priorities

Benefits of Infor Ming.le
Infor Mingle offers users an assortment of advanced business process management capabilities across enterprise-wide streams, organizing conversations, driving collaboration across specific user groups, and helping users work smarter, not harder.
Here are a few benefits you’ll experience by implementing the platform within your core systems:
Infor Mingle delivers information in new ways, which can help increase workplace productivity. Plus, putting information in a hub where the appropriate people can easily find and search for it means you’ll be able to reduce the number of emails in your inbox.
Preserve Vital Corporate Knowledge
Instead of information getting lost or buried in email and instant messaging siloes, Infor Mingle retains vital corporate knowledge in a centralized location within a single workflow interface, so people always know where to look for things.
Improve Employee Morale
By using technology that creates an efficient work environment, you can help to meet employee expectations and retain top talent. Infor Ming.le also provides single sign-on throughout your Infor applications, which means employees only have to remember one password.
Make Better Decisions
With an intelligent portal to relevant data and access to data integration tools like Infor Birst, knowledge sharing between employees is simple, leading to improved decision-making.
Key Features of Infor Ming.le
Here are a few main features of Infor Mingle for business users:
Streams help companies organize conversations and business processes around a common workflow or business topic. Participants can collaborate to complete activities and organize docs by threading them around each activity.
Similar to many forms of social media, Paparazzi allows users to ‘follow’ social objects and people and deliver automatic notifications based on parameters that you define. For example, you could set up a notification for when a specific inventory item reaches a certain amount (before it gets low) or when a customer makes a new purchase.
Ming.le combines real-time information from ERP, SCM, enterprise asset management (EAM), and finances on a single screen for contextual analytics. It can also automatically detect your work type and display relevant data to that task in a centralized space.
Tasks and Alerts
Keep up with the progress of essential activities by using the built-in workflow interface to push relevant information to the right people when issues arise. Infor Mingle makes it easy to filter, view, and monitor recurring conversations and information across enterprise-wide streams.
Work doesn’t stop just because you’re not at your computer, which is why Ming.le’s mobile capabilities are so useful. You can keep business moving thanks to information and alerts delivered to your mobile device, no matter where you roam.
Need to extend your Ming.le platform to external participants like partners and vendors? Not a problem! Infor Ming.le can offer structured communication and business processes and share key screens with internal and external stakeholders.
