Sapphire Systems has announced an expansion of its partnership with Infor to include the delivery of Infor CloudSuite Industrial (SyteLine) software to the international manufacturing community.
Sapphire has a prior relationship spanning across twenty years with the enterprise software provider, re-selling Infor SunSystems, Infor d/EPM & Infor EAM, and recently was awarded Infor’s OCFO (Office of the CFO) Partner of the Year award.
Sapphire System’s CEO, Ian Caswell, said the opportunity to further develop the relationship into the manufacturing sector made perfect sense for both parties: “We are always looking for opportunities to expand and improve our software offerings, and we had identified the manufacturing industry as a gap in the market for us. Infor CloudSuite Industrial (SyteLine) is a well-established application and provides us with a market leading enterprise software product to build upon our manufacturing-based expertise. It is the latest in a series of products we have adopted or developed ourselves in order to deliver industry-specific software applications to the markets we serve.”
“Sapphire is a leading Infor partner with a track record of success in many vertical industries and Infor has a proud heritage of working with pioneering manufacturers throughout the UK, US and beyond,’” said Peter Stanley, vice president, European Partner Sales, Infor. “Consequently, this expansion into manufacturing is very well timed as innovations around Industry 4.0, the Internet of Things, 3D printing and smart factories has created an incredibly active market. We are confident that Sapphire will rise to the challenges of these new technologies, capitalise on the experience Infor has already amassed, and develop substantial opportunities to deliver real value to the global manufacturing community.”
