Infor launches channel recruitment drive


Infor has launched a channel partner recruitment campaign across Europe,
Middle East and Africa (EMEA) with the aim to significantly increase its
number of partners in these regions.

To support continued growth levels in 2009, Infor is looking for both
resellers and system integrators to drive sales of its Enterprise Resource
Planning (ERP), Supply Chain Management (SCM), Warehouse Management (WM),
Enterprise Asset Management (EAM), Human Capital Management (HCM), Expense
Management (EM), Performance Management (PM) and Financial Management (FM)
The recruitment campaign builds on Infor's recent EMEA channel successes
which include more than 350 customer wins over the last 12 months. Channel
revenue accounts for 18 percent of the company's total licence revenue in
EMEA. The campaign will comprise a series of road shows in September,
following the company's annual EMEA partner conference, in Marbella, Spain,
on 3 September.
"Infor is the world's tenth largest software company, and having acquired
some of the best solutions in the market we provide channel partners with
proven solutions for their customers," says Jean-Philippe Pommel,
vice-president: EMEA Channels and Alliances at Infor. "Our approach to
channel recruitment is focused on quality over quantity.
"We are not looking to take on thousands of partners and risk dilution of
our focused approach, but a smaller number of partners which are well
aligned with our products and company ethos."
