Infor formalises partnership with Catalyst
Strategic agreement is designed to support Infor’s planned growth in the MEA region
Business application software provider Infor has announced a partnership with global systems integrator, Catalyst Business Solutions.
The strategic agreement will support Infor's planned growth in the Middle East and Africa region by helping Catalyst to market, implement, train and provide professional services for Infor's ERP LN, ERP VISUAL, Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) and Performance Management (PM) solutions across the Middle East and Africa.
"As an established systems integrator with enterprise applications experience, we welcome Catalyst to our growing network of channel partners," said Jean-Philippe Pommel, Infor's vice president of channels, EMEA. "We look forward to working shoulder to shoulder with Catalyst to help educate companies in the Middle East and Africa regions about the immense value Infor solutions can bring to their operations."
According to Infor, Catalyst has extensive experience in the Middle East, Africa and Indian Ocean region and will focus on getting small and medium sized organisations on board with Infor products and solutions.
Catalyst will also help to build a local ecosystem for deployment, training and support in the Middle East and Africa region.
"We've witnessed Infor's increasing scale and the impressive investments in its development of pertinent solutions for what we consider are a rather neglected market segment in EMEA. We've also seen the new management team's impact over the last six months," said Jean-Baptiste Blanc, vice-president, sales at Catalyst Business Solutions. "In addition to its recently launched portfolio of truly innovative solutions, we were impressed with Infor's new channel partner network programme, which provides extensive support in the form of local resources, marketing and training. We welcome the opportunity to support Infor in its growth ambitions for the Middle East and Africa regions and look forward to a long term and fruitful partnership."
