Infor Listed as Champion in Info-Tech Research Group's 2013 Property Management Systems Vendor Landscape

Mobile Features and Cloud Deployment Noted as Positive Features

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 11, 2013) - Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that Infor HMS has been listed as a Champion in this year's Info-Tech Research Group Property Management Systems Vendor Landscape. Info-Tech Research Group Vendor Landscape reports recognize outstanding vendors in the technology marketplace. Assessing vendors by the strength of their offering and their strategy for the enterprise, Info-Tech Research Group Vendor Landscapes pay tribute to the contribution of exceptional vendors in a particular category. For this Vendor Landscape, Info-Tech focused on those vendors that offer broad capabilities across multiple platforms and that have a strong market presence and/or reputational presence among mid and large-sized enterprises.

Scores for product evaluation were based on eight criteria to determine overall standing including features, usability, integration, architecture, viability, strategy, reach and partnership. Champions receive high scores for most evaluation criteria and offer excellent value. They have a strong market presence and are usually the trend setters for the industry. Listed as a Champion, Infor HMS was recognized as a product with remarkable features and usability, and a vendor that is continuously expanding its hospitality portfolio.

"Infor allows customers to choose which applications they would like deployed onsite and which in the cloud, and gives them the ability to change these choices over time," said Tim Lawless, product manager, Info-Tech Research Group. "Infor HMS is extremely scalable, with clients ranging from boutique hotels to hotels with over 3,000 rooms. Mid to large-sized international hotels that already use some of Infor's other enterprise applications, such as Infinium, should strongly consider Infor HMS. Also, organizations that are looking to take advantage of social media analytics and advanced mobile functionality should keep Infor in mind."

ION-enabled Infor HMS provides enhanced property management functionality that enables hoteliers to serve guests more efficiently, with speed and agility. The solution delivers tools to help hoteliers improve the guest experience, get more repeat business from profitable guests, improve reporting, and empower employees to spend more time with guests.

"A reliable property management system is critical to operating a business at a profit, especially at a time when competition continues to grow in the hospitality industry and guests are becoming increasingly vocal about what they want, and experiences they have had," said Stewart Applbaum, senior vice president and general manager, Hospitality, Infor. "Infor provides our customers with the tools they needs to not only fill rooms for success, but to enhance the overall guest experience through social and mobile tools, and systems and processes that give employees easy access to actionable information about guests and potential guests."
