Infor is currently among the top software companies in the world. Recently, it released Infor10, its newest product line anticipated to revolutionize business with its set of innovative and sophisticated features. Fusing mobile technology with best-in-class applications and speed, Infor10 is seen as the future of business software, allowing users to accelerate operations to keep up with the ever increasing velocity of commerce.

For Charles Phillips, Infor’s position in the industry places it in the heat of the competition. But for him, Infor’s edge over its considerably larger competitors is its corporate culture that may be summed up in its new slogan, “Survival of the fastest.” Indeed, Charles Phillips, its CEO, fosters a zeal for speed and continuous motion among the members of his company.

Charles Phillips and his wife, together with two friends, established the Phillips Charitable Organizations to help aspiring minority engineers finish their studies and give assistance to poor single mothers.”

“It is a core value for us, and our mantra, internally and externally,” Phillips said.

Charles Phillips: Infor’s finest revealed

Featuring mobile accessibility, smooth product integration, and a user-friendly interface, Infor10 represents a new development in the company’s product roster. Working behind the scenes prior to the release, Charles Phillips, Infor’s new CEO, has been bringing the company toward a new direction, reflected entirely in the new brand.

The new product line, Infor10, boasts of a middleware layer that, while limited in scope, offers fast, smooth integration among the products in its roster—the first in the history of Infor. This striking first feature is part of the company’s efforts to move away from its holding company image and provide its clients with more innovative solutions.

The middleware layer allows the industry-specific suites in the Infor10 to remain unique while remaining integrated; the company believes that integrations should be part of the application, not the implementation. The programs are provided with a new, user-friendly interface (Workspace) and mobile accessibility through smart phones (Infor10 Motion).

From Charles Phillips

Steered by Charles Phillips, Infor’s new direction aims to provide its clients with faster, more efficient solutions that don’t need to rely on doing something over multiple platforms; as Phillips puts it, “You build it once.” This is the case with Infor10, which not only is considerably smaller as a result (as it comes in 3 CDs) but also is considerably faster and easier to use.
