Infor, the industry cloud company, today announced that Boskalis, a leading service provider of dredging and maritime solutions, has selected Infor CloudSuiteTM, a fully integrated, cloud-based solution suite delivering leading-edge core ERP, integration, social, and analytic capabilities. Boskalis has transitioned over the last years from a dredging company to an integrated maritime service provider. Infor CloudSuite will enable Boskalis to focus on implementing a fit for purpose backbone for the core activities in its growth plan rather than its IT infrastructure.

Boskalis is headquartered in Papendrecht, the Netherlands, and has more than 11,000 employees in 75 countries across six continents. The company is a world-leading expert in the field of dredging and maritime services, and achieved €3.1 billion in revenue in 2014. Boskalis focuses on projects in the energy, ports and infrastructure markets, with clients including governments, port operators, international project developers, and companies in the oil, insurance, mining and shipping industries.

Infor CloudSuite is built upon Infor's offerings available on Amazon Web Services (AWS), combining beautiful software with rich functionality. The solution offers Boskalis enhanced flexibility and the opportunity to reduce costs while benefitting from higher availability, by leveraging the global infrastructure of AWS for its worldwide operations.

Boskalis will complete this project through the Infor UpgradeX program, which provides a simple, predictable path to help customers upgrade from on-premise applications to the Infor Business Cloud. Companies like Boskalis can leverage existing Infor investments to migrate to the 10x-enabled versions of Infor applications in the cloud, helping them to reduce associated costs and risks, and minimize disruption to daily operations.

Boskalis will begin implementing Infor CloudSuite in the Netherlands and expects its first users to be operational in 2016. When most of the Netherlands is operational, the deployment will spread to Boskalis locations globally over the course of the next years. Included in the suite of applications are Infor LN, Infor ION®, Infor Ming.leTM, Infor Expense Management (XM), and Infor Dynamic Enterprise Performance Management (d/EPM).

Boskalis Quote
"The technology we have to deal with is becoming more complex," said Rien Krijger, ICT director at Boskalis. "The decision to build knowledge in our own team or to extract it from Infor, which offers all specializations together as a service, was simple. We are moving away from the principle to do everything by ourselves, in-house, so our team can focus more on maximizing the business value for its own organization."

"Our business operates globally on a project-based structure, and we do not stay in one location for a long time, e.g. the expansion of the Suez Canal which is executed with our partners Van Oord, NMDC and Jan de Nul. Infor CloudSuite meets all our requirements, such as interoperability with third-party systems, easy management and connections to on-premise applications. Therefore, the connection with other systems, such as our mobile platform, can be realized quickly and easily. Yet it also provides the desired performance, and we can rely on Infor's 24x7 support - something we could never have realized with our own team at acceptable costs."

Infor Quote
"Businesses across all regions and industries continue to express a growing interest in moving to SaaS-based ERP systems. The selection of Infor CloudSuite by a leading global player like Boskalis confirms that our UpgradeX program is exactly what customers are looking for to provide a clear, cost-effective path to the cloud," said Stephan Scholl, president of Infor. "The flexibility delivered by Infor CloudSuite will give Boskalis the necessary agility to support future acquisitions without requiring extensive investment in additional resources. By expanding its relationship with Infor, the company will benefit from deep industry-specific functionality hosted in a secure environment, alongside a lower total cost of ownership and scalability to grow as the business grows."
