Infor, the industry cloud company, today announced that KPIT Technologies Limited, a leading IT consulting and product engineering solutions and services provider, has expanded its existing relationship with Infor to become an Infor Alliance partner. Headquartered in India, KPIT will focus on the delivery of Infor CloudSuiteTM Industrial (SyteLine), Infor XA, Infor Warehouse Management (WMS), Infor IONTM and Infor M3 to customers across Asia.
In 2013, KPIT joined the Infor Partner Network (IPN) as an Infor Channel partner, reselling and providing support for Infor business applications. This collaboration allowed Infor to strengthen its presence in India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. As an Infor Alliance partner, KPIT is valued for its thought leadership, industry knowledge and extensive experience and understanding of Infor's industry-specific applications. The enhanced partnership between KPIT and Infor will span India, Japan, Korea, Singapore and Australia, with a focus on the manufacturing, fashion, equipment, and food and beverage markets.
"KPIT has experienced great success and satisfaction through our partnership with Infor over the past two years. When we began looking for ways to create more opportunities for our business, it made sense to capitalize on the relationship that we had already established," said Ramaraju Indukuri, global head, Enterprise Solutions, KPIT Technologies Limited. "Being an Infor Alliance partner will allow us access to more innovative tools and resources from Infor and give us the opportunity to provide additional value-add services to customers."
KPIT will concentrate primarily on Infor M3, a comprehensive enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution that provides the flexibility to manage mixed-mode environments across multiple sites and countries. The technology behind Infor M3 allows customers to more easily connect and configure the solution, while also providing core industry-specific capabilities right out-of-the-box. Through this functionality, Infor M3 supports industry best practices to help customers optimize everything from financials to manufacturing operations and the supply chain.
"Infor is experiencing significant momentum in the Asia Pacific markets, and our expanded partnership with KPIT will support this continued growth as we help more organizations capitalize on the more than $1 billion in R&D investments by Infor since 2011," said Tim Moylan, president, Asia Pacific, Japan & Middle East, Infor. "Building on our relationships with successful partners is a strategic imperative for Infor, as it allows us to fully leverage the expertise and knowledge that our existing partners already possess to maximize benefits for our customers."
The IPN is a global network designed to provide the tools and resources necessary to help partners grow a profitable and sustainable business around Infor products.
