Increased Adoption for Infor Hospitality-Specific Applications and Cloud Implementations Contribute to Success
Infor, the industry cloud company, announced significant momentum for its hospitality division at HITEC 2015 earlier this year. Over the last two years, Infor has seen a more than 200 percent increase in its SaaS hospitality solutions bookings. In addition, hospitality-specific applications such as Infor CloudSuiteTM Hospitality, Infor d/EPM for Hospitality, Infor Customer and Marketing Management (CMM), and Infor Human Capital Management (HCM) brought on new relationships with more than 700 customers over the last fiscal year ending April 2015. Some of these include Wyndham Hotel Group, Kempinski Hotels, Auberge Resorts, Intrawest Resorts, and Hard Rock International.
Infor CloudSuite Hospitality delivers rich capabilities to help manage all operations within a single solution, while also providing the reliability and security of hosting data in the Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) cloud. Global organizations can benefit from a faster implementation and the suite’s monthly subscription-based delivery model, which helps to generate cost savings by minimizing upfront IT expenditure and delivering the flexibility to scale up or down as needed.
“Now is the time for hospitality organizations to make the move to the cloud because as market competition increases, the cloud represents a viable means to help reduce costs, enhance services to guests and improve differentiation,” said Stewart Applbaum, senior vice president and general manager, Infor Hospitality. “Infor recognizes the challenges and concerns that hotel and gaming operators experience when considering a shift away from on-premise systems, which is why we offer industry-specific options coupled with the security, reliability and scalability that decision-makers are seeking. Our objective is to help organizations maximize profitability return from their IT investment, while also providing a clear path for transition to the cloud.”
In addition to core products for hotel operations and revenue management, Infor offers numerous applications designed to connect the front and back-office, helping to create a more collaborative culture and facilitate a unified approach to achieve larger business objectives. Infor HCM applications, including Infor Talent Science and Infor Talent Management, help hoteliers to hire the most qualified candidates to optimize employee performance, whereas financial applications such as Infor SunSystems allow organizations to close books quickly while capitalizing on real-time reporting and analysis. Combined with the power of Infor ION®, hoteliers can establish connectivity across the enterprise to promote more strategic decision-making and greater overall efficiency.
