INFOR LAUNCHES MOBILE PLATFORM
Infor has introduced Infor10 Motion, a cloud-based mobile platform built on its Ion integration framework. The company also kicked two applications into the market this week: Road Warrior, a mobile CRM application, and ActivityDeck, which allows users to respond to important tasks, receive real-time alerts, and approve pending requests.
Motion applications can plug into systems such as ERP, CRM, expense management or supply chain management because of Ion’s loosely coupled architecture. Infor said the platform is core product independent and can provide a consistent user interface across back-office applications. The applications are also described as being “app aware” which means they can detect when another app on the device could provide additional functionality, including consumer apps. For example, Infor said Road Warrior incorporates Skype and FaceTime within a customer's contact record so sales personnel can move into consumer collaboration tools with their customers. The Motion App Manager provides a single location for a company to deploy Motion applications quickly within an existing IT infrastructure. Road Warrior and ActivityDeck are available for secure installation through the Apple iTunes Store. Last modified on Sunday, 16 June 2013
