Infor global solutions have issued a statement in response to SAP strategy.
SAP issued a press release declaring the strategy to pursue the mid-market.
Infor says, one has to wonder if SAP truly understands the mid-market or whether this strategy is solely an effort to detract attention from the slowing growth of their fortune 500 base.
Medium-sized customers do not want all-in-one products that need massive customisation efforts to address their line of business. That approach is a relic of the past, when ERP implementations were akin to corporate open heart surgery.
Infor is a growing company, delivering solutions with industry experience already built in. The bottom line is that customers want more functionality, less complexity and a low total cost of ownership. That is not the plan from SAP.
Created in 2002; 8,100 employees, Infor has more enterprise software customers than SAP -- 70,000.
Infor’s business model fills a void in the market by providing customers, through acquisition and innovation, with proven, business-specific solutions.
Business specific functionality and practices are already built-in to Infor’s solutions which speeds implementation and lower total cost of ownership. Industry experts recognise Infor for its low total cost of ownership and business-specific experience.
