First Infor Academy Training Center Opens in Wrocław
Every new European Infor employee will train in the capital of Lower Silesia
WROCŁAW, POLAND – 15 April, 2019 – Infor, a global leader in business cloud software specialized by industry, announced today it has inaugurated its first European Training Center — Infor Academy in Wrocław, Poland.
This training center is the first of this type that Infor has established anywhere in the world. The academy is responsible for training Infor field employees and partners on the most innovative products and technologies in which Infor has invested over $3 billion in recent years. Effective use of these innovations requires that employees and partners across Europe receive the highest-quality training; this is the task of the European Training Center — Infor Academy. Each year, the academy will host thousands of advisers and implementation consultants. Every new employee and consultant in Europe will visit Wrocław for obligatory training.
“Infor invests significantly and engages in developing innovative technologies. Cloud solutions and artificial intelligence are already present in everyday business. Here, in the European Training Center in Wroclaw, this knowledge will be collected, developed, and shared with employees and partners of our company, and in next phases, also with students,” said Artur Sawicki, manager of the Infor Center of Excellence that has been operating in Wroclaw since 2016.
“We are proud that Wrocław was chosen as the headquarters of the European Training Center,” adds Artur Sawicki. “It is a tribute to the dynamic development of Infor in Wrocław. The choice of Wroclaw was determined by the location — in the heart of Europe, with improving flight connections, good hotel infrastructure, and access to great experts already working at Infor in Wroclaw.”
The decision on the site selection coincided with the announcement of the title "Best European Destination 2018" for Wrocław.
“Training will be provided by local trainers in Wrocław, as well as by Infor experts from around the world. We will make efforts that the knowledge remains in Wrocław. For this purpose, the presentations will be organized for both employees and external audiences,” adds Artur Sawicki. The first open meeting, focused on digital transformation, took place few weeks ago.
Additionally, Katarzyna Bagińska has been appointed as head of the European Training Center. She has been employed at the Wroclaw Center of Excellence for two years. Both units — the European Training Center and the Center of Excellence are located in the Retro Office House complex in the center of Wrocław. The ultra-modern, well-designed office at Retro Office House is more than twice as big as the previous one, and ten times the size of the company's first location in Wrocław. The total area is nearly 6,000 m2.
