New Infor Marketplace to be One-Stop Shop for Unique Software Offerings
Infor has announced the new Infor Marketplace, a curated showcase of solutions that can augment and enhance customers’ existing Infor investments. The Infor Marketplace is designed to make it easier for customers to discover, source and license industry and micro-vertical solutions that integrate with Infor’s portfolio of enterprise software.
The Infor Marketplace currently serves as a listing marketplace, where customers can register to receive information and assets related to a wide range of Infor and partner solutions and services. Going forward, Infor plans to develop it into a real-time provisioning platform, where users can conduct frictionless e-commerce.
Soma Somasundaram, Infor Chief Technology Officer & President of Products, said, “The launch of Infor Marketplace underscores our commitment to providing a smart, preconfigured and modern enterprise ecosystem. We expect to provide access to hundreds of solutions that have been pre-integrated with Infor software or built with Infor platform technologies. From partner-developed apps, which support certain niche industry parameters, to free Infor-developed content such as visualisations, extensions and reusable widgets, the Infor Marketplace is intended to showcase new and innovative solutions for our customers.”
The Infor Marketplace also showcases Infor’s large and growing partner network. It provides Infor’s ISV (independent software vendor) partners with additional visibility to more than 65,000 Infor customers. In the coming months, the Infor Marketplace is expected to provide additional capabilities to Infor ISV partners, which should simplify customer acquisition, billing, payment processing, and automated provisioning.
The Infor Marketplace is intended to serve as a one-stop shop for customers looking to source unique and innovative software solutions – including analytics, AI and machine learning apps – and find value-add extensions to Infor products that deliver even greater industry-specific capabilities.
It also is expected to include a searchable index of partner solutions designed to help maximise the value of customers’ Infor ecosystem investments. Users also can see ratings and reviews from other customers on what solutions are helping their businesses most.
Companies and partners interested in having their products and services listed on the Infor Marketplace can send an e-mail to InforMarketplace@infor.com for additional information.
The Infor Marketplace is powered by AppDirect, a leading subscription commerce platform designed to remove the complexity of building a recurring business model.
