Infor, the industry cloud company, today announced an expanded suite of transformative products that are designed to significantly benefit the unique needs of customers within the Federal government. For a number of years, Infor has offered comprehensive enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions, which contain a diverse suite of applications that address government requirements for financial, human resources and payroll, supply chain, logistics, asset management, enterprise performance and risk management, and citizen relationship management. Infor now offers a wide array of solutions that can be delivered via a multi-tenant cloud or on-premise deployment; toolsets that help Federal organizations achieve the full potential of enterprise technology and deliver efficient services to the public. Infor is continuing to steadily invest in the creation of innovative technology solutions that offer Federal organizations a more contemporary approach to modernizing processes, helping to establish a more meaningful and effective way for conducting business.
Infor is well known as an ERP provider with a deep background in industry-oriented applications. However, Infor is moving beyond the back office solutions to provide applications that leverage its deep industry-focused expertise to meet the program requirements within the Federal government. While the core offerings still focus on product suites such as enterprise financial management (EFM), human capital management (HCM), citizen relationship management (CRM), enterprise asset management (EAM), supply chain management (SCM) and enterprise risk management (ERM), Infor continues to concentrate on how to harness these technologies in a more meaningful and cost-effective way, and unlock the potential of the Federal workforce.
Each Infor product suite is designed to provide a more transformative user-experience, capturing knowledge and optimizing performance based on precise and configurable preferences. This helps organizations overcome frequent challenges experienced in the Federal space like disjointed or redundant systems, and instead replaces them with a more unified experience that leverages modern technologies such as social, mobile and cloud platforms. This flexible and agile approach enables a smoother transition from legacy systems while providing the millennial workforce the technology and user experience they expect.
"Federal government customers have a unique challenge in that they must maintain transparency with both citizens and regulatory agencies, which becomes increasingly difficult when information and processes are managed through disparate systems," said Wayne Bobby, vice president, Federal Solutions, Infor. "Infor's suite of products is designed to address the needs of all users, from finance and human resources to maintenance, while also delivering a unified experience. This connectivity facilitates unparalleled visibility, helping federal customers to drive operational efficiencies and better meet citizen demands."
