The recent announcement by Infor about the availability of CloudSuite for Wholesale Distribution is part of the company’s efforts towards rapid acceleration of migration of its on-premise applications to the Cloud. With this latest addition, Infor CloudSuite now comprises of 14 separate micro-verticals that its customer base can access on the Cloud.
Infor has been strategically pushing customers to migrate to the cloud as quickly as possible so that the revenues from CloudSuite will soon start to be a significant chunk of Infor’s revenue. The availability of Enterprise Distribution and Wholesale Distribution is a step towards giving customers an incentive to migrate to the Cloud.
In a recent statement, Charles Phillips announced that he wanted over 50 per cent of the company’s revenue in 2016 to come from cloud based applications. However, the company does not view their strategy as an attempt to force customers to move to the Cloud. Rather, the availability of CloudSuite products gives customers the flexibility of migrating their applications to the Cloud as there are advantages in doing so.
Although in comparison to other micro-verticals, Wholesale Distribution is one of the later ones to join the CloudSuite, companies can experience several advantages of using Infor CloudSuite over the legacy systems that they have employed until now.Contact us to learn more about our Infor Product Services
