FARNBOROUGH, UK, May 29 2013 -Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that FC Business Intelligence has deployed Infor SunSystems on a hosted basis.

News points

  • Following five years of rapid growth, FC Business Intelligence identified a requirement to upgrade its financials solution.
  • Having reviewed the financials software market, FC Business Intelligence selected Infor SunSystems based on its ability to support business growth, scalability, flexibility, and a low TCO. Infor's vision and product roadmap were also instrumental to the decision.
  • FC Business Intelligence's decision to deploy a hosted version of the solution means that it will benefit from lower risk, a smaller technology footprint and lower costs.
  • The solution's user interface was also a compelling factor in making the selection as the system is easier, and therefore faster to use.
  • Given that FC Business Intelligence's employees travel regularly, robust, remote access to the web-based system is a key benefit, enhanced by the hosted tenancy.
  • Excellent integration capabilities enable SunSystems to link to the event company's other business systems.
