Infor Partner Network Attracts More than 110 Global Resellers in Eight Months
Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced strong momentum for the Infor Partner Network. Attributed to Infor’s recent growth, innovative new products, and increased support and resources for partners, more than 110 channel partners around the world have signed on to become new licensed resellers of Infor products since the launch of the IPN last June. Infor has announced a goal to form 400 new reseller partnerships in the next three years.
“Further developing our channel partner program is important to Infor because it enables us to drive progress in all regions of the globe and plays a key role in our success as a company,” said Jeff Abbott, vice president, Global Alliances and Channels, Infor. “With four consecutive quarters of year-over-year double-digit license growth, leading resellers are anxious to become part of Infor’s ongoing evolution and expansion. We are leading the field in terms of innovation and channel partners realize the strong growth potential by partnering with Infor.”
New partners from around the globe include Brinel, Cambridge Online Systems Limited, Consultoria e Serviços Ltda., IBIS, Lucidity Consulting Group, Premier Computing, Inc., and VICOR Business Services, Inc.
“We chose to become part of the Infor Partner Network because of Infor’s heavy investment in research and development and its focus on delivering new products and enhancements at an accelerated rate,” said Noermeson Tertuliano da Silva, director of Poliedro Informática, Consultoria e Serviços Ltda. “We believe Infor is outpacing the competition in innovation, particularly ION and Infor10 Workspace, both released in the past year. Selling Infor’s portfolio of products will help us increase our profits by providing the type of solutions that our customers are looking for.”
“For Lucidity, many of our customers run multiple enterprise systems and many run Infor. Our customers ask us a lot about Infor and want an alternative to other solutions,” said Clint Brice, CEO, Lucidity Business Solutions. “With our industry vertical focus, Infor was a natural evolution for our business to meet the needs of our customers."
Members of the Infor Partner Network benefit from a variety of tools and incentives offered to help them grow a profitable and sustainable business around Infor products. These resources include an incentive-based commission structure, customized training and certification options, and a Market Development Funding (MDF) program to assist partners in planning how to best utilize capital to generate future profit.
“The on-boarding training that we received was excellent, and having access to Infor sales resources has proved invaluable in positioning us to expand our business,” said John Vivian, president, VICOR Business Services, Inc. “The investment that Infor is making in this program is encouraging and makes us feel that we are equipped to grow as Infor grows, making them the ideal partner for us.”
Infor plans to continue recruiting resellers from all regions in order to build a global network to deliver the highest quality of support and services for its channel partners, as well as broaden the availability of its diverse solution portfolio.
