Infor Dynamic Enterprise Performance Management (d/EPM) for Hospitality has been selected as a Champion in this year's Info-Tech Research Group Business Intelligence (BI) for Gaming, Hospitality and Leisure Vendor Landscape.
Infor was noted for its hospitality-specific functionality, which helps to speed implementation through prebuilt reports, dashboards, and key performance indicators (KPIs) designed purposefully for the industry's business model. Info-Tech Research Group releases this annual report to highlight the highest-scoring vendors that offer broad capabilities across multiple platforms with a strong market presence among mid-size and large gaming and hospitality enterprises.
"Infor has grown its dedicated hospitality business unit over the years by continuing to expand and enhance its product portfolio, developing applications with the daily challenges of hoteliers and gaming companies in mind," said Larry Fretz, gaming & hospitality practice lead at Info-Tech Research Group. "While Infor d/EPM supports many industries, its hospitality edition is designed with in-depth functionality to help jumpstart implementations and facilitate detailed what-if scenario analysis. Its Office Plus feature also promotes higher user adoption by integrating directly with Microsoft Excel.
