Share  

NEW YORK -  Feb 20, 2014

Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that Boskalis, a leading service provider of all-round dredging and maritime solutions, will implement the Infor 10x version of Infor LN, which includes Infor ION, Infor Ming.le and Infor Business Intelligence (BI). Infor's software will support the organizational change process resulting from the growth Boskalis has experienced in recent years. 

Boskalis is headquartered in Papendrecht, the Netherlands, and has more than 11,000 employees in 75 countries across 6 continents. The company is a world-leading expert in the field of dredging and maritime services. In 2012 Boskalis achieved its record revenue of €3.1 billion. The company focuses on projects in the energy, ports and infra markets with primary clients including governments, oil companies, port operators, insurance companies, mining companies, shipping companies and international project developers. 

Several changing conditions within the enterprise, such as the merging of companies, expansion of services and an increase in more complex, multi-segment projects created the need for a new IT solution. Boskalis elected to expand its cooperation with Infor because of the best fit for their goals, thirteen years of positive experience with Baan, outstanding support and Infor's extensive expertise and business knowledge, with the overall performance of Infor software and the Infor 10x roadmap as the most decisive reasons.
Infor ION (Intelligent Open Network), part of the Infor technology stack, benefits Boskalis by delivering improved interoperability. The open middleware platform integrates Infor solutions such as Infor BI, Infor Expense Management (XM) and Infor Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) with third party software. Infor Ming.le provides a uniform user experience.
