One of the big long-term challenges auto suppliers face today is deciding where they will fit into the ever-advancing technology in cars.

John Flavin, Infor's executive vice president, Global Manufacturing Solutions, says companies must assess how to match their workforce and capabilities with these increasing technical requirements.

Infor offers applications that help companies plan, schedule and ship product. Flavin suggests companies consider offloading some of their in-house IT capabilities to Infor, improving data security and freeing up dollars that can be invested in people and products to meet the auto industry's needs.
