NEW YORK - Dec 18, 2013
Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced a new micro-vertical product program for partners based on the Infor Mongoose development framework, demonstrating further investment in resources for the Infor Partner Network (IPN). Officially announced at the Infor Americas Partner Summit in July 2013, this program is designed to provide partners with new opportunities to grow a profitable and sustainable business around Infor applications.
The micro-vertical product program allows partners to build their own industry-specific applications using Infor Mongoose, Infor's leading development platform that enables users to more easily design and deploy applications without knowledge of complex source code or programming languages. Further, this initiative delivers direct benefits by helping partners to capitalize on existing market needs, providing them with the latest Infor 10x technology, and helping them to establish a new compelling revenue stream for their business.
"This program will help partners to provide more industry-specific functionality for our customers to better address their individual challenges," said Tony Petrucciani, chief executive officer, Single Source Systems, Inc. "Infor Mongoose will enable us to create applications in days, rather than months, that are built on top of a world-class ERP base. This allows us to deliver more value to organizations by providing technology that, coupled with innovations like Infor Ming.le, will continue to deliver benefits well into the future."
Partners have the opportunity to present the application idea to Infor, and then build and promote their envisioned product with the help of Infor's technical staff and global sales organization.
"We're giving our partners unprecedented access to our global customer base by allowing them to identify niches where additional industry-specific functionality is needed, and then build or extend an application to address those challenges," said Jeff Abbott, senior vice president, Global Alliances and Channels, Infor. "Infor Mongoose is flexible and easy to use, and will become an even more powerful tool in the hands of our partners by enabling them to enhance Infor's micro-vertical strategy while profiting from their own ingenuity."
