Nucleus Research Recognizes Infor as Leader in Human Capital Management in Latest Value Matrix

Report Highlights Cross-Functionality in Financial Management, Key Acquisitions, and Mobile Capabilities

NEW YORK –  Oct 09, 2017

Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced that Infor Human Capital Management (HCM) has been recognized again as a Leader among human capital management applications in Nucleus Research’s latest Technology Value Matrix for HCM. Nucleus Research placed vendors in the Leader category who continue to improve in offering HCM solutions that are legitimately end-to-end, helping to enable employers to practice HCM as an interconnected discipline.

“Infor’s several-year streak continues in retaining its position mid-pack in the Leader quadrant of the HCM and WFM Value Matrices,” said Brent Skinner, analyst, Nucleus Research. “Infor’s position within the Leader quadrant of this year’s HCM Value Matrix is unsurprising. The vendor continues to innovate its functionality and provide a level of usability that benefits its customers. As Infor continues to migrate its legacy installation base to the vendor’s cloud solutions, Nucleus sees the company further solidifying its new reputation as a fully in-the-cloud provider.”

Nucleus Research also states that Infor’s functionality for onboarding draws on the full breadth of the vendor’s suite and attendant, sophisticated technology for the enterprise. According to the analysis, this enables Infor to complement the conventional streamlining of workflow behind onboarding with unconventional ideas. For instance, the system can determine the retailers whose products might appeal to a new hire and then send him or her a related coupon ahead of his or her first day on the job. Nucleus Research believes the incremental improvements to employee engagement that such capabilities fuel is beneficial. (1)
