Infor has announced their partnership with Salesforce.com and will be utilising their expertise in a project to create three new Inforce applications. These applications include the InForce Everywhere, InForce Order Management and InForce Marketing. The focus of these three applications is to provide a thorough view of customer data cross a whole business.
The application will be bringing the power of the back office to the front, and throughout the social enterprise, such as helping customer collaborations and driving business growth.
“Sales professionals in Infor’s large manufacturing customer base need fast and easy access to the critical product and order data in our applications, and we will render that rich data in Salesforce,” says Charles Phillips, CEO of Infor.
“This partnership will help customers focus on building and selling great products instead of configuring databases, middleware, BI tools, or disk drives. Our customers need to automate processes in hours and days, not months and years and skip the classic 3-by-3 ERP project – 3 years, 300 million, and 3 CIOs. They need results faster.”
The partnership will involve Infor building and delivering the three applications all on Force.com, as well as developing additional applications on top. Also, as part of the partnership, Salesforce.com has made an investment in Infor’s application projects.
“Companies transforming themselves into social enterprises want new ways to run their business,” says Marc Benioff, chairman and CEO, salesforce.com.
“Infor joins salesforce.com in recognising these transformations must span across the entire company.”
