Infor is proud to announce its recent partnership with McKesson Enterprise Information Systems (EIS). The partnership goal is to improve customer choice and help healthcare organizations reduce costs by better managing their supply chains. McKesson Enterprise Information Systems is a leading provider of healthcare technology. They provide hospitals and health systems with electronic medical record solutions, consulting, infrastructure and hosting services. Infor is excited to leverage McKesson’s expertise in supply chain management to help our customers maximize the value of their technology and lower costs.
What are the major benefits of this partnership?
This partnership consists of two major components. First, Infor will offer customers and prospects McKesson Strategic Supply Sourcing™, a unique cloud-based supply chain procurement solution that helps drive savings for medical surgical supplies through improved contract compliance and identification of cost saving opportunities. Second, McKesson EIS will offer Infor CloudSuite Healthcare, which is a comprehensive suite of healthcare applications including financials, human capital management, supply chain management and clinical interoperability. This partnership will help enable Infor and McKesson customers to lower their total cost of ownership and increase security through a cloud-based platform.
What does this mean for existing McKesson and Infor customers?
Overall, the integration between McKesson Strategic Supply Sourcing and Infor CloudSuite Healthcare will provide healthcare organizations with a comprehensive ERP suite that can lead to improved workflow and lower supply costs. McKesson EIS will continue to offer its existing McKesson ERP suite as an on premise solution. This partnership gives more flexibility and an alternative to McKesson customers who are looking to move to the cloud.
We look forward to this opportunity with McKesson and are excited to see your organization take the next step toward achieving operational excellence. For more information, read the press release.
