Pursuant to the Business Continuity Plan, Infor has created a dedicated cross-functional Global Crisis Management Team tasked with overseeing the company’s COVID-19 response. This team meets several times weekly to ensure the health and safety of our employees and to monitor and respond to any potential impact to our business.
As part of our response, we have made sure our support staff are set up to work remotely via virtual private network (VPN), allowing protected access to our support systems and customer records when required. We have also worked to provide any necessary support to ensure that our consultants are equipped to provide continued services remotely through use of safeguarded technology and online collaboration tools.
