Infor And Ciber Form Partnership Focused On Customized Solutions And Quick Value To Clients

NEW YORK and GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo., June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, and Ciber, a global IT consulting company, have entered into a strategic agreement to help speed implementations and significantly expand the number of trained consultants globally for Infor applications.  Both companies are specialized by industry and will deliver programmatic services and advanced implementation methodologies that Ciber's 7,000 consultants will use to accelerate high quality implementations of Infor applications.


Equipment service, management and rental dealers will be among the first to benefit from the alliance. Based on Infor's robust M3 product, and extended by Ciber's consulting practice, the solution is designed for rapid deployment that accelerates business value to clients. Infor's M3 application provides the tools needed to manage the full range of operations for organizations that are in the business to make, move, or maintain products, including distribution, equipment service management and rental, fashion, food & beverage, and manufacturing. This integrated solution allows businesses to monitor transactions throughout their organization, including asset management, supply chain activities, customer and supplier relationships, manufacturing operations and financial management. M3 consolidates these into one coherent view of operations, enabling companies to be more responsive in today's dynamic marketplace.

"Infor's strategy of providing customers solutions that are specialized by industry requires strategic partnerships with proven industry leaders," said Stephan Scholl, president of Infor. "Ciber is an ideal partner for Infor because the company's solid expertise in our target industries, including equipment, manufacturing, healthcare, distribution, and the public sector will help speed time to value for customers."

"The alliance between Infor and Ciber combines the power of leading-edge software with rapidly scalable business and implementation expertise to directly benefit clients.  At Ciber, we measure success the same way our clients do -- by results. With Infor, we will deliver pre-configured solutions that shorten implementation timeframes, increase adoption and drive tangible business results," said Ciber CEO Dave Peterschmidt.

Ciber's relationship with Infor dates back to 1995, when the company partnered with Lawson Software, which Infor acquired a year ago. As one of Infor's largest systems integration partners, Ciber implements full-scale business transformation projects through business process calibration and change management, as well as functional and technical services supporting Infor applications and technology. Ciber delivers solutions supporting budgeting, financial processes and analysis, human capital management, and manufacturing and distribution systems. The company also offers expertise in several of Infor's targeted vertical industries. The Infor experts on Ciber's team have enhanced client systems capabilities through more than 2 million consulting hours.
