Infor Wins Technology Innovation Award at Equip'Hotel Show

Cloud and Mobile Among Capabilities Contributing to Prestigious Recognition for Infor HMS

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Nov 20, 2012) - Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that Infor Hospitality has been awarded a prestigious Equip'Innov Award for one of the most innovative products in the technology category at the Equip'Hotel Industry Conference and Exhibition in Paris. Infor HMS was selected because the application has made significant strides in cloud, mobility and social network integration solutions, expanding rapidly into international markets.

Infor HMS is a multi-departmental application that touches the important areas of the business -- whether it's financial asset management, central reservations, revenue management or corporate office, on-property operations, sales, marketing, maintenance or staffing schedules. Infor Hospitality connects hospitality-specific strategy and plans to front- and back-office systems so organizations have tools to operate more efficiently, make better decisions faster and maximize revenue opportunities. Benefits also include financial and scalability offered through the cloud, which reduce IT infrastructure costs and provide greater flexibility to expand or upgrade as the business changes. 

"Infor is changing the way the hospitality industry operates. We understand the pain points that hoteliers face and tailor our solutions to help navigate through them successfully," said Wolfgang Emperger, director, sales, Hospitality, Infor. "This award further validates the great strides we've been making as a company in the Hospitality industry and we will remain committed to continued innovation in our software applications to make our customers as efficient and profitable as they can be."

Infor was among approximately 1,800 other exhibitors at the show and Infor HMS is the only PMS (Property Management System) to win this award.
