Foundation Team

Foundation Team

A fast track program for rising tech stars

We get inspired by the introduction of driverless vehicles, smart homes, cashier-free supermarkets, and other groundbreaking changes in technology. We embrace innovation and desire to work with businesses as they use new tech to become more strategic. We are Infor’s Solution Consulting Foundation team.

Created in 2016, our 18-months program has hubs in New York City and in Barcelona. We teach recent college graduates and early-career professionals the fundamentals of Infor solutions, industries, and software sales. Our team members have a deep curiosity about the intersection of technology and business, exceptional presentation and writing skills, and a desire to help organizations digitally transform their operations.

 

What is Solution Consulting?

Quite simply, it’s the best job in tech you’ve never heard of before. Our mission is to connect an organization’s pain points and business processes to Infor solutions that can solve them. We deliver value-based software demonstrations to prove their value. A career in solution consulting is exciting and rewarding and can lead to roles in implementation consulting, value engineering, solution architecture, industry strategy, or product management.

Foundation Team members complete an 18-month immersive program. Program graduates become field-facing Solution Consultants across our portfolio of industries and solutions. In this program, you learn about software sales cycles, how to create tailored RFP (Request for Proposal) responses, how to conduct successful customer discoveries, and how to create exceptional customer demonstrations.
