NEW YORK - Feb 03, 2015
Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 73,000 customers, today announced that more than 130 new channel and alliance partners joined the Infor Partner Network (IPN) in 2014. This includes new relationships across North America, Latin America, Asia and Europe, making this the third consecutive year that Infor has cultivated more than 100 new reseller partnerships worldwide. Consistently recognized as a leading program in the industry, Infor has continued to make significant investments in the IPN since its inception in 2011.
"We joined the IPN this year as an alliance partner because an ongoing formal relationship with Infor gives us the opportunity to focus specifically on the industries and solutions where we have long proven expertise and knowledge, such as hospitality, travel and finance," said Norman Muttitt, president, Paranet Solutions. "Both Paranet and Infor are dedicated to helping companies meet strategic goals using technology, and we look forward to utilizing Infor's innovations in order to support customers in improving their businesses."
Infor continues to attract new resellers and service providers by enhancing available resources and creating new initiatives exclusively for partners. This year alone, Infor launched Infor CloudSuiteTM Academy, a training program designed to equip partners with the necessary skills and knowledge to help customers implement Infor applications in the cloud. The company also created Infor Launchpad to provide partners around the world with access to live, in-person training with Infor business development representatives (BDRs). Both of these programs were built to give resellers and service providers an individualized experience tailored for their industry and product focus, helping them to increase competitive differentiation and drive opportunities for their company. These are just a few of the enhancements that Infor has introduced over the past year focused on enablement and pipeline development for partners.
"We have continued to meet and exceed the objectives that were established for the IPN when it was initially conceptualized and created, offering more options and methods to help partners grow their business with each passing year," said Jeff Abbott, senior vice president, Global Alliance and Channels, Infor. "Infor is focused on micro-vertical specialization and helping customers make the move to the cloud, and so is the IPN. Partners are an integral part of our long-term business strategy, and we've achieved this level of success by ensuring that the program's structure and resources tie directly into our larger company initiatives."
The IPN is a global network designed to provide the tools and resources necessary to help partners grow a profitable and sustainable business around Infor products. To learn more about becoming an Infor partner, visit www.infor.com/partners.
