Infor Delivers Cloud to Equipment Rental Industry

Infor CloudSuite™ Equipment Rental Now Available to Enhance Business Agility

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - August 16, 2016) - Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced the availability of Infor CloudSuite™ Equipment Rental, a ready-to-run cloud-based solution built to specifically meet the needs of equipment rental organizations. The solution was designed to help companies streamline core processes, support business growth, boost efficiencies, and increase opportunities for innovation.

Infor CloudSuite Equipment Rental is designed to help organizations attain a competitive advantage through a quick time-to-value and, compared to non-cloud software solutions, lower upfront investment. The system has the potential to reduce labor costs with simple deployment options to help meet companies' growth needs as they prepare to enter new markets, acquire businesses or add users. The system will also promote global growth and business agility by optimizing rental fleets. The application allows equipment rental organizations to focus on customer engagement and provide their customers better service by providing the equipment they want, when they want it, and for the right price.

Infor CloudSuite Equipment Rental contains a set of core functionality with the option to add applications and process support as a company grows. It provides an out-of-the-box approach with a highly prescriptive pre-configured database with extensive process documentation. Infor CloudSuite Equipment Rental's industry-specific functionality and its leverage of Implementation Accelerators for Equipment Rental for rapid implementation help differentiate the Infor cloud solution from other cloud offerings available in the market.

"Equipment rental organizations deal with a lot of moving parts, whether they operate on a local or global scale, so creating efficiencies where they do not currently exist can be vital. One way to achieve such an advantage is by enhancing asset visibility to help determine where the equipment is, what condition it is in, and any problems that may arise. When working to design Infor CloudSuite Equipment Rental, we were keeping this all top of mind," said Andreas Hellstrom, senior industry and solution strategy director, Infor. "This solution is built with the same cloud functionality and security as other CloudSuite applications, but with specific features for the industry and the ability to integrate with other key applications. Our goal was to provide a single view of the entire lifecycle to increase efficiency and support cost management."
