The Infor Implementation Accelerators, provided to customers since 2013, are preconfigured industry solutions accompanied by project plans that provide more predictable results. The Signavio value proposition is to help drive value from the implementation of the enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. This is significant, as Info-Tech research shows that average ERP implementation only delivers 30% of the expected value.
The partnership will add the Signavio Business Transformation Suite to the Infor Implementation Accelerators. The Suite includes the Signavio Collaboration Hub for a central repository of knowledge sharing as well as tools for mapping processes, including real-time mapping of actual business processes for analysis.
