NEW YORK - Oct 26, 2016
Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced that W.S. Badcock Corporation (Badcock), a leading furniture retailer with more than 320 stores in eight states, plans to upgrade its current Financial and HR systems to Infor CloudSuite™ to transform its back office strategy. Infor CloudSuite applications, including financial and supply chain management, dynamic enterprise performance management, human capital management and human capital management analytics, are strong enough to meet the needs of finance and HR management today, but innovative and flexible enough to adapt as a business evolves. Infor CloudSuite™ will help Badcock stay modern and agile for continued growth.
"Providing our business partners with the right solution, using the right technology is a key focus for our IT team," said Bill Trimble, vice president and CIO, W.S. Badcock Corporation. "We are taking a major step forward implementing Infor CloudSuite™ as a replacement for our legacy Lawson ERP."
Through elimination of finance and HR platforms from multiple vendors, Infor CloudSuite streamlines processes, in near real time to help drive adoption and productivity. Badcock will be able to utilize a full range of business applications to interconnect critical processes and transactions in more meaningful ways. With Infor CloudSuite, Badcock will have the tools to support retail operations, labor productivity and staffing effectiveness; forecast more accurately; and analyze the business more effectively - ultimately gaining greater insight to make more informed decisions that directly impact bottom line results.
"Badcock is super pleased to partner with Infor in bringing improved technology to both our Finance and HR practices as we support our brand as best in class leveraging of talent to provide a superior retail experience for our customers," said Steve Bargamin, senior vice president and CFO, W.S. Badcock Corporation. "We are eager to implement Infor CloudSuite™ and look forward to a long standing relationship."
Infor CloudSuite™ is role-based, data driven, consumer-inspired, mobile enabled analytics software that will help Badcock understand key business drivers and visualize changes that drive growth and profitability. Teams at Badcock will have the information they need to better understand risks, overall business performance, and the impact of decisions company-wide.
