Infor, a leading provider of business application software with operations serving more than 75 000 customers, has announced that it will hold its annual EMEA Channel Partner Conference in Estoril, Portugal.
The conference is the first major channel event in EMEA since Infor announced plans to double channel revenues in the next three years, with the launch of the Infor Partner Network (IPN) in June.
The event will also be the first opportunity for many Infor channel partners to network directly with partners originating from the recent Lawson acquisition.
The EMEA Channel Partner Conference will be held at The Palacio Estoril Hotel, near Lisbon, Portugal on the 04 and 05 October 2011.
The event brings together senior Infor executives and channel partners from across EMEA, and features keynote presentations from Soma Somasundaram, senior VP, development; Jeff Abbott, VP, global alliances and channels and Jean-Philippe Pommel, VP, channels, EMEA.
Details will be shared on the success of the new Infor Partner Network (IPN) which was launched in June. This new programme provides Infor Channel Partners with the tools, resources and financial incentives to help them rapidly grow a profitable and sustainable business around Infor products.
Infor channel partners benefit from the programme’s highly competitive commission rates, new performance bonuses, a comprehensive training and certification programme, and a market development funding (MDF) programme.
Infor will also update partners on its technology strategy and showcase its latest product innovations which offer partners a unique opportunity to sell business software designed to help end user businesses operate faster by changing the way they do their work, making working capital run faster, getting products to market faster, identifying trends faster and helping IT departments respond faster to business strategy.
“Our commitment to the channel has never been stronger and I look forward to sharing how Infor is partnering for success with our channel to drive immense growth over the next three years,” says Jeff Abbott, VP of global alliances and channels, Infor.
“With an industry leading channel programme, and disruptive, innovative new products to take to market, it is an exciting time for Infor and partners alike.”
