Why cloud deployment powers equipment rental companies

Cloud deployment of Infor’s industry-tailored solutions is an ideal fit for the operational dynamics and business objectives of the equipment rental industry. The Infor CloudSuite delivery model offers:

With data managed by Amazon® Web Services (AWS)—an experienced leader in cloud computing—your company benefits from best-practice protocols in application, network, physical, and operations security, as well as comprehensive monitoring.

With preconfigured yet flexible, industry-leading business processes, training materials, tools, templates, and simulations, you can deploy Infor CloudSuite Equipment Rental in weeks or months—not as extended projects, like typical legacy ERP implementations. This can help your company realize cost savings, decrease project risks, heighten productivity, and increase profits sooner.

Reduce costs and implementation time by eliminating the need for servers, hardware, and maintenance resources. And because cloud delivery is a monthly subscription that can be expensed as an operating cost, you'll have more capital for strategic projects.

Without the need for hardware or physical implementation, you can quickly and easily extend Infor CloudSuite Equipment Rental to new markets and sites, including new branches, warehouses, and acquisitions.

With more than 2,800 Infor CloudSuite customers and 30 years’ experience delivering financials, procurement, and ERP solutions, Infor supports you with unique expertise in deploying, hosting, and protecting critical applications in the cloud.

Infor CloudSuite Equipment Rental features an elegant, consumer-inspired interface that powers a centralized social collaboration platform that requires little or no training. Mobile capabilities also allow your employees to share information, resolve issues, and move projects forward from anywhere.
