Over the last few months, Charles Phillips has led Infor through a series of collaborations that marked the ERP vendor’s expansion of its already vast portfolio—a good development for both the company and its customers.

Infor may have been among the top of the industry per se, but for some analysts, it was its acquisition of HCM leader Lawson Software that effectively sealed its place as a true ERP vendor elite. Indeed, making good use of Lawson’s technology, Infor created Infor HCM, a software suite that is counted among the best to date. With its best-in-class applications and tools, it parallels employees’ work with a company’s business strategies and goals. But Charles Phillips was just getting started.

To mark Infor’s commitment to help its customers get the most out of their software investment, the company organized Inforum 2012. The hype over the event had hardly abated when Infor announced its partnership with cloud computing leader Salesforce.com to create Inforce. The new suite will combine Infor’s ERP and financing applications with Salesforce.com’s sales and services tools, creating a powerful enterprise solution geared for effective customer relationship management.
Infor recently announced its partnership with systems integrator TriNET in marketing, implementing, training, and providing professional services for Infor10 ERP Enterprise. This will enable TriNET to work as an extension of Infor Consulting Services or ICS.
"In addition to its recently launched portfolio of truly innovative solutions, we were impressed with Infor's new partner program. We welcome the opportunity to support Infor in its growth ambitions for North America and look forward to expanding our long-term and fruitful partnership," said Dill Sanghera, TriNET’s President and CEO.
