Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that HAND Enterprise Solutions Company, Ltd. (HAND), one of the largest IT consulting firms in China, has joined the Infor Partner Network (IPN) as an Infor Alliance partner. This relationship demonstrates continued momentum behind the IPN in Asia and China following recently announced alliances with Neusoft Huiju and Healthlink. Headquartered in Shanghai, HAND will deliver implementation support and services for Infor Enterprise Asset Management (EAM), Infor Supply Chain Execution (SCE) and Infor M3 to customers across greater China.
"We strive to be a leader in IT services by developing a deeper understanding of our customers' individual businesses and challenges," said Bin Wu, chief technology officer, HAND. "Our partnership with Infor will be based on the philosophy that applications should be purpose-built with the needs of different organizations in mind, rather than a one-size-fits-all mentality."
Specializing in business process optimization, ERP implementation and system integration, HAND will focus on multiple industries including industrial manufacturing, equipment, distribution, and automotive. Infor M3, an ERP designed for companies that make, move or maintain products, provides the flexibility to manage mixed-mode and complex environments across each of these verticals. When integrated with Infor SCE or Infor EAM, businesses can create a comprehensive system to manage operations from inventory and assets to production and financials.
"It is important that we provide manufacturing and distribution customers in China with access to local resources, such as consultants who understand the nuances specific to our regional market," said John Du Bois, general manager, Infor China. "Infor has established a goal to double revenue in Asia over the next three years, and partnering with companies like HAND plays a critical role in our ability to achieve this objective."
The IPN is a global network designed to provide the tools and resources necessary to help partners grow a profitable and sustainable business around Infor products.
