Infor multi-tenant cloud solution to support 400 users for specialist equipment and integrated engineering services group

LONDON – 3 August 2021 – Infor, the industry cloud company, today announced that Sparrows Group, engineering and maintenance services specialist for the global energy and industrial sectors, has decided to move its existing on-premises Infor EAM asset management system to the Infor cloud as part of its digital transformation programme. The project will be managed by Infor Gold Channel Partner Progressive TSL.

Sparrows Group has a long-standing relationship with Progressive, which has been its Infor EAM partner since the original implementation in 2015. Sparrows Group has benefitted from the rich functionality of Infor EAM for many years. Infor EAM already helps to drive the group’s end-to-end procurement and supply chain management processing. This is coupled with the powerful Infor OS platform for purchase approval on mobile devices. The multi-currency solution is used across Sparrows’ European, Middle East, African and Asian sites.

Sparrows decided now is the right time to take advantage of the benefits a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution brings. The company asked Progressive to use its specialist expertise to support it through the next stage in its digital journey. The Infor cloud solution will help support 400 Sparrows asset management and procurement users, and Sparrows’ remaining on-premises systems will be integrated with the new cloud EAM.

The move to the multi-tenant Infor cloud brings to Sparrow Group the potential for significant cost savings and business benefits, including:

  • Reduced total cost of ownership
  • Seamless access to the latest updates and innovations
  • Enhanced performance, reliability and availability
  • Greater scalability

“We are delighted to have agreed to move to the Infor cloud,” said Michael Reid, Sparrows Group finance systems manager. “The benefits of the SaaS offering were clear, with automatic software updates and cybersecurity compliance being just a few of the many advantages. We are looking forward to working with Progressive to transition from our current on-premises solution.”

“We congratulate Sparrows for making the forward-looking decision to move to a SaaS EAM solution,” said Chris Walcot, CEO of Progressive TSL. “Progressive will be using its specialist technical expertise and tools to ensure a smooth transition of Sparrows Group’s 400 Infor EAM users to the Infor cloud.”

“Due to the breadth of capability in Infor EAM, Sparrows was able to optimise its supply chain and procurement operations that surround its asset management activities,” said Anwen Robinson, Infor GM and SVP of UK & Ireland. “By using Infor EAM in the cloud, Sparrows can expect to benefit from more transparency, control, and better decision-making options, helping to improve the performance and efficiency of its international operations.”
