Even though the ERP landscape is growing more fragmented every day, a couple of industry leaders continue to increase their market and revenue streams with tenacity.
One such player is the US-based company Infor. Established in 2002, Infor nets $3 billion in revenue annually and serves 70,000 customers in more than 194 countries.

Infor Has a Lot to Offer

It offers a range of enterprise solutions including, but not restricted to, asset management, financial systems, capital and talent management and resource planning, which happens to be the flagship domain of the company.

Most significantly, in keeping with the rising popularity of the SaaS model and cloud-based software, Infor has enabled the delivery and deployment of five of its most advanced and comprehensive ERP suites through its cloud platform the Infor CloudSuite, to the benefits of this include extending the customizability, the flexibility and the intuitiveness of its popular ERP solutions to SaaS subscribers.

According to the 2014 report titled ‘Market Share Analysis: ERP Software, Worldwide, 2013’, Infor is the fourth largest ERP contender in the market in terms of revenue. It rakes in close to $1.5 billion in sales and its worth in the resource planning domain has been increasing steadily.

Thanks to the launch of CloudSuite, Infor has created a lot of hype around its modular, customizable ERPs which add value to businesses by overseeing the management of both mission critical and everyday operations.
