Infor, a global provider of industry-specific cloud applications, today announced a strategic alliance with the leading software and services company in the Nordics, Tieto. The alliance will see Infor’s industry-specific cloud capabilities and Tieto’s local service delivery come together to help make digitalization a reality for manufacturers in Finland, with a view to the proposition being expanded over time into additional Nordics territories.
Tieto is regionally recognized as a tier 1 service provider with proven delivery models and localization in the Nordic region. “We are partnering with Infor on the implementation and service delivery to ensure a positive and robust experience for companies who have selected Infor solutions to run their business operations,” says Jaakko Tapanainen, Head of Industrial and Consumer Services Finland at Tieto. “We see customers wanting more out of their solution landscape and data. Infor has products and solutions, and we at Tieto have capabilities and expertise to implement to customers’ environment.”
The partnership will extend Infor’s commitment to the Finnish market, bringing its enterprise applications spanning ERP, BI & analytics, Enterprise Asset Management and Product Lifecycle Management to retailers and manufacturers across the region. Focused on manufacturers in the machinery & equipment, food & beverage and wider process industries initially, the joint proposition is designed to help expedite performance and carve out differentiation in a crowded market.
“Both Infor and Tieto have strong credentials in Finland’s manufacturing sector: Tieto has a reputation for excellence in service delivery, while Infor’s micro-vertical multi-tenant cloud strategy is second to none. By joining forces, we are looking forward to maximizing our proposition and helping our customers to obtain the necessary data insights to boost performance even further,” comments Johan Made, General Manager, Infor, Nordics. “We are in the throes of a digital revolution and our aim is to help the markets we serve to exploit untapped potential and carve out business models which will see them thrive long into the future.”
