NEW YORK - May 15, 2017
Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced that Infor Workforce Management (WFM) has been recognized as a Leader in Nucleus Research's latest Technology Value Matrix for WFM. Through the analysis of end-user experiences, vendors are evaluated on both usability and functionality - key drivers of value - and placed into four categories: Leaders, Experts, Facilitators, and Core Providers.
Infor WFM is a comprehensive solution that is designed to help align labor management with corporate strategy. Integrated modules address forecasting and budgeting, scheduling, time and attendance, performance management, and compliance, and are designed to help streamline processes and increase efficiency while encouraging employees to focus on activities that can generate more value.
"Infor can deliver WFM as an add-on bundle to the Infor HCM Suite of services. Integration here is seamless and furnishes users with access to all the Infor applications. Compliance is robust. Infor has met new rules from the European Union (General Data Protection Regulation - GDPR) and the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) with automated solutions to support employers' related needs," reports Brent Skinner, Principal Analyst, Nucleus Research.
"As noted in the last two reports, WFM from Infor integrates with Infor Financials, a cross-functionality that underscores the competition that Infor brings to vendors such as Workday, SAP, and Oracle. Nucleus has found that this sort of integration yields cost savings for employers," said Barbara Peck, Principal Analyst, Nucleus Research.
Infor WFM delivers Infor's next-generation interface. With the power of HTML5, users can access data from a wide range of browsers and devices, or more quickly tailor screens, and mobile access supports self-service shift selection and management.
Nucleus Research also highlights the Infor Xtreme Support Portal, which offers a choice of plans and provides the support for users to maintain their systems, receive software updates, and benefit from access to interactive briefings and a knowledge-based library. Nucleus Research notes that this is a positive development that will help Infor forge deeper, more continual relationships with customers, something Nucleus Research believes is critical to Infor's strategy.1
"Infor understands that every industry has unique workforce management requirements. Healthcare organizations have different needs than a global retailer, or a government agency, and our solutions reflect those industry-specific nuances," said Trish McFarlane, vice president, Infor. "We're proud to be named a Leader in the Nucleus Research Matrix this year. It's a testament to our continued commitment to investing and developing new capabilities for our cloud-based Infor WFM suite, and Infor's underlying promise to our customers to help them achieve workforce excellence and remain competitive in a fluctuating business environment."
