NEW YORK - Jul 02, 2013
Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that its distribution business unit has experienced more than 120 percent license growth since the close of Infor's 2010 fiscal year. By engaging with customers and incorporating feedback, Infor has continued to invest in its distribution products to deliver solutions that address challenges faced in today's shifting landscape.
"We've held a number of multi-day industry council meetings over the last 18 months to take a deeper look at certain distribution micro-verticals. By ensuring that our team understands the evolving complexities of the industry, we can view our solutions through the eyes of the distributor to determine where enhancements can be made," said Andy Berry, general manager and vice president, Distribution, Infor. "Our goal is to invest in solutions that provide greater value and profit potential to our customers."
Net new customers now comprise a substantial portion of the Infor Distribution customer base thanks to momentum behind sales of leading solutions like Infor Distribution FACTS and Infor Distribution SX.e. Each customer brings a new perspective and list of requirements to light when joining the Infor community, enabling continued innovation and ongoing improvements to both solutions and the company as a whole.
In addition, existing customers have demonstrated their belief in Infor's innovation strategy by becoming early adopters and advocates for some of the newest solutions available. Examples include C.H. Briggs integration of Inforce to Infor Distribution A+ through ION, State Electric's roll out of Infor Road Warrior and IDG's adoption of the Storeroom solution.
"It's not only the products, but the stability and excellence found in our executive and management teams and incorporation of new talent that is inspiring new customers and retaining existing customers," said Lisa Russell, director of industry marketing, Distribution, Infor. "With industry experts and advocates like Andy Berry, Brian Lombardo and Joe Bennett, businesses know that they are working with professionals who have a passion for wholesale distribution and understand their industry through years of personal experience."
