NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Oct 1, 2012) - Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced the general availability of its Customer Interaction Hub. The Customer Interaction Hub is an enabler for the intelligent orchestration of customer dialogues and leverages the entire Infor CRM Epiphany Suite. Built specifically for the Financial Services and Telecommunications industries, this new solution offers a comprehensive infrastructure to store and present all customer interactions in an organized way, providing organizations with key information that enables them to develop long-term relationships with customers.
"For an organization to engage in effective dialogue with their customers, visibility of all interactions is key," said George Wright, senior vice president and general manager of CRM, Infor. "The Infor Customer Interaction Hub was developed to address the growing need for companies to relate to empowered customers; it connects, feeds, and controls enterprise-wide operational and analytical solution capability in order to maximize the effectiveness of current and planned interaction opportunities. This new offering is one part of our Customer Experience Management (CXM) growth strategy."
Folksam, one of Sweden's largest insurance companies, plans to gain several benefits from the Customer Interaction Hub.

"Infor's willingness to partner with us to develop a specialized solution, coupled with their industry-expertise, made them the clear choice to help us meet our goals.

Using the Customer Interaction Hub, Folksam will have better management over its leads, aligning information and messaging with the right customer in real-time via the appropriate channel.
