Kevin Samuelson, CEO at Infor, said: “Helping customers navigate today’s turbulent environment requires a deep understanding of the forces shaping their companies and their industries at large. We believe our innovative cloud technology, infused with industry-specific expertise, is what sets Infor apart.

“Rather than trying to build a single product to serve all industries, we’ve invested billions to create separate, industry-specific product suites, which go into the details for sub-verticals to meet certain specific needs of those customers,” he explained. “For example, we don’t have just a manufacturing suite, we have a suite that is purpose-built for the automotive industry – with specific key processes, functions and attributes germane to the sector – all built into our products. This structure is designed to enable faster deployments and deliver more value, over time, than generic, horizontal alternatives on the market.”
