Infor and Kurt Salmon Team Up to Bring Next Generation Retail Solutions into the Social and Digital Age

United States – January 18, 2016, 08:00 AM

Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced plans to collaborate with Kurt Salmon, a global management consulting firm, in bringing next generation retail solutions into the social and digital age. Through the combination of Kurt Salmon's industry experience and Infor's cloud-enabled, robust, retail-specific applications, this new market alignment provides retailers with the speed of innovation needed to navigate such a complex marketplace.

"Both Kurt Salmon and Infor understand innovation and what is needed for the next generation of retail. We are partnering together to bring the value and expertise of each organization to retailers and their customers, delivering modern capabilities, technologies and analytics consistent with the ones we all use in our everyday lives," said Al Sambar, managing director, Retail and Consumer Goods, North America, Kurt Salmon. "Our companies attack conventional thinking around business processes that existed in an industry pre-social, pre-mobile, and pre-omni channel, and each respective team has extensive experience solving complex issues facing today's retailers, in a manner that is consistent with 21st century thinking."

Infor and Kurt Salmon plan to work together to reduce the need for customization and are focusing on delivering solutions that generate significant speed to value through a cloud strategy. Kurt Salmon plans to leverage its unparalleled industry expertise and thought leadership to work with retailers on implementing a solution that is specific to their needs, including solutions that address the need to engage today's hyper-connected consumers on a personal and social level.

"Like Infor, Kurt Salmon shares the same DNA and passion toward radically disrupting an industry that has a growing appetite for new thought leadership. We are aligning to leverage the value and expertise of each organization, and to deliver new, modern and innovative solutions together to the industry," said Corey Tollefson, senior vice president and general manager, Infor Retail. "Retail the way it should be."

Infor CloudSuite™ Retail, a new holistic, cloud-based retail management solution planned to be generally available later this year, will support all formats and types of retailing-including online, brick-and-mortar, social, mobile, fashion, hardlines, and grocery-on a global scale. The suite will be architected and delivered in a way that allows retailers to take advantage of next generation capabilities incrementally without ripping and replacing legacy platforms.
