Infor has formed a strategic partnership with leading global IT services company HCL Technologies to better serve customers.
This collaboration will significantly expand implementation, development, and support resources for Infor customers across all geographies through HCL's local operations in more than 30 countries. HCL will build a practice specifically to support key Infor products, including Infor M3 and Infor Lawson Enterprise Financial Management, dedicating approximately 500 employees to work exclusively with the Infor ecosystem.
"Infor differentiates itself in the market through its user experience, industry-specific functionality and flexible deployment options, all of which will appeal to HCL customers across multiple industries and markets," said Anant Gupta, president and CEO of HCL Technologies. "It is because of these distinctions that HCL is investing in Infor, as we feel its applications present a viable new source of revenue for our business and will help us to deliver greater value for our clients."
As a strategic alliance member of the Infor Partner Network (IPN), HCL will form integrated development and support teams with Infor to enhance implementation and maintenance capabilities.
"This strategic partnership will help Infor accelerate the adoption of our applications; we've shipped over 400 new products and 16,000 enhancements in recent years and our customers are anxious to upgrade to Infor CloudSuite," said Charles Phillips, CEO of Infor. "HCL's deep technical bench and global scale will expand the talent pool around Infor applications and quickly deliver value for our customers."
