Infor wins Qioptiq software deal

Infor , the rapidly
expanding software consolidator, has won a contract to supply Qioptiq with
business software for all its business units.

Qioptiq is backed by the Candover group and supplies advanced optical
products. The business will be using Infor’s PM MPC product, a performance
management tool that reduces the amount of time required for reporting,
budgeting and analysis.

‘The goal is to implement a common solution in order to have a single
integrated database and set of reporting standards globally, which are the same
at all our sites,’ said Philippe Cotte, Qioptiq Group’s financial controller.

In separate news, Infor rival Coda bagged a coup of its own. The group’s Fast
Close product, which helps accountants to close books faster, has achieved
‘SAPxApps’ certification.

This means that the Coda product can interoperate with applications from SAP
and other vendors that are compliant with the SAP NetWeaver platform to help
users improve period-end close processes.

The certification was achieved by demonstrating that Fast Close by
CODA is compatible with the
SAP NetWeaver Portal and meets all of the technical and business criteria
established by SAP
for its SAP xApps Certified status.
