NEW YORK - May 13, 2013
Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced strong momentum behind sales within the Infor Public Sector product suite, which includes applications for everything from enterprise asset management (EAM) to human capital management (HCM) and financial management. New customers like the City of Wichita and Sedgwick County, Howard County, Western Municipal Water District, DuPage County, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, City of Savannah, and City of San Francisco have all selected Infor technology solutions. Infor has also leveraged a strategic partnership with Ciber, a global information technology consulting company, to help implement technology within Denver Public Schools and the City of Boise.
The increase of customer acquisitions and product growth serve as a watershed moment for Infor as a technology provider for the public infrastructure. By absorbing feedback from existing customers, Infor has adopted a thoughtful approach for addressing various customer needs as they differ within the industry. From government management tools, to emergency response technology and even library operations solutions, Infor creates a customized approach to meet the specific needs of each institution.
"We previously entered data manually for both our payroll and benefits systems, which took a significant amount of time away from other daily activities for staff," said Joy Wilkinson, Lawson ERP Project Manager, City of Savannah. "Integrating our Infor products has enabled us to increase efficiency, save time and clean up data through automated information sharing."
Infor Public Sector has taken strategic steps towards enabling customer goals by executing on technology needs. These impactful upgrades are evident through recent innovations like Infor Public Sector Suite 8.3 and a strategic cloud offering to SaaS capabilities for public institutions, as well as customer successes like the City of Las Vegas' recent award win with Transforming Local Government. Transforming Local Government's annual Innovation Awards recognize local governments that have successfully addressed a public concern, created a positive impact or enabled organizational improvement in a new and creative way. Other core enhancements have focused on providing quality enhances for geographic information systems (GIS), user interface and portal personalization.
"Prior to our implementation of Infor Public Sector, we didn't have the technology to regulate workforce or asset management and most of our processes were paper-driven," said Greg Duecker, director of Administration and Information Technology, Western Municipal Water District. "Now, we can automatically capture and utilize our data to optimize workforce and asset performance, helping us save both time and money for our ratepayers through greater operations visibility."
Infor Public Sector applications help agencies to eliminate paper-based processes to help speed day-to-day operations. With enhanced data capture, transfer and analysis, decision-makers can more easily identify potential savings areas to help accommodate for tightening government budgets. Infor Public Sector promotes shared services by enabling integration between Infor and third-party applications for streamlined connectivity and information transfer between departments.
"Each public sector organization operates in a manner that is unique to its own size, scale and goals. Infor Public Sector strives to create thoughtful products that offer inherent value to each specific customer," said Kevin Curry, SVP, Public Sector, Infor. "Infor uses an approach that does not limit the customer's potential growth and instead provides them with the tools they need to achieve long-term growth and success."
