Winners were announced on Monday, March 21, at the annual Engineering Awards in Manufacturing dinner hosted by CFE Media.
Infor CloudSuite Facilities Management was the winner of the Grand Award, an accolade that recognizes the product with the most individual votes among all products voted on in the competition this year. This product suite is designed to help customers reduce inefficiencies, costly maintenance requirements, and missed business opportunities by delivering greater asset visibility to help streamline core processes. It is a solution that includes a core enterprise asset management system combined with enhanced extension applications-all delivered in the cloud.
Additionally, Infor EAM Energy Performance Management was presented with the Gold Award in the Energy Management category. This module is designed to help organizations stay competitive and better understand the energy behind asset management.

These capabilities can help prevent operational surprises and uncover hidden profits.
