Liberty Healthcare Management, Inc. Upgrades to the Cloud With Infor

Infor UpgradeX Provides Simple Migration to Newest Infor Lawson Healthcare Applications in the Cloud

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - January 07, 2016) - Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced that Liberty Healthcare Management, Inc., a family-owned and operated company with a strong commitment to a complete senior care continuum based in North Carolina, has successfully migrated its Infor Lawson applications to the cloud via the Infor UpgradeX program. Infor UpgradeX is an Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud based modernization path that helps organizations better manage cost and enable better collaboration across the extended enterprise.

An Infor customer since 2009, Liberty recognized that moving to Infor CloudSuite Healthcare would help them to better manage vital resources, including people, supplies, clinical data and financial assets. Part of the suite, Liberty will get a completely new version of their current Infor solutions deployed in the cloud, including Infor Lawson Supply Chain Management, Infor Lawson Human Resource Management, and Infor Lawson Enterprise Financial Management, which delivers more predictable service performance, allows users to make better business decisions, and better aligns operations. "We're a very satisfied long term Infor customer and have already seen significant benefits by moving to the cloud," said Kris Benton, supervisor, Software Development, Liberty Healthcare Management, Inc.

With more than 3,800 users at 45 sites, this upgrade will help to reduce customizations, eliminate the need to hire additional in-house staff for system administration and maintenance and improve the system's hardware performance. These upgrades applications will also help cut down on administrative work, leaving staff to focus on more critical tasks and ultimately enhance the quality of patient care.

"Liberty chose Infor's UpgradeX program because it offers cost savings while freeing up local resources. This program allows Liberty to remain agile in an ever-changing healthcare environment. The reliability and flexibility of Infor CloudSuite will allow Liberty to keep costs down while allowing us to grow and continue to provide superior patient care," said Richard Gallo, vice president, Information Systems, Liberty Healthcare Management, Inc. "Liberty's overall experience throughout the UpgradeX process was very smooth. Infor provided the right resources at the right time to ensure our migration and upgrade went as smoothly as possible."

Liberty also implemented Infor Lawson Business Intelligence (BI), Infor Human Resource Management, and Infor Process Automation. Together, these tools will provide consolidated analytics and data from across the organization into one system. Having all this key business information together in real-time will help decision makers at Liberty make more informed business decisions.

"The healthcare industry needs cloud-based applications to better steer through challenges on limited budgets by improving security, boosting operational performance, keeping systems as modern as possible, and optimizing applications for improved productivity," said Mike Poling, senior vice president, Infor Healthcare. "Infor's cloud-based specialized applications for healthcare deliver a system that can support an organization's future needs, while still ensuring departments and facilities run efficiently and effectively today."
