Infor Expands Sustainability Offerings with Acquisition of ENXSuite
Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced it has acquired the ENXSuite product line. A natural complement to Infor10 EAM's convergence of energy and asset management, ENXSuite is a cloud-based energy performance management (EPM) platform that provides actionable energy intelligence enabling companies to continuously plan, analyze, and manage their entire energy and sustainability footprint. This acquisition further strengthens Infor's position as a leader of enterprise solutions for energy management and sustainability, helping customers manage and control energy costs, as well as operational and environmental compliance.
Infor has acquired the ENXSuite product line, a sophisticated energy data integration platform and energy consolidation product that augments Infor10 EAM's demand reduction and conservation capabilities by enabling organizations to transform their energy, carbon, water, and waste assets into measurable and manageable financial assets.
Infor10 EAM is a comprehensive enterprise asset management and sustainability solution that monitors and manages the design, commissioning, performance, energy efficiency, and maintenance of company assets, helping to reduce energy consumption and related costs by as much as 20 percent while helping to ensure optimal asset performance.
The unified view of energy sources provided by coupling ENXSuite and Infor10 EAM capabilities will help organizations determine the causes of energy waste and expense. This enhances programs targeted to prevent waste by integrating energy intelligence, visibility, and management controls into the organization's day-to-day business processes.
Infor will showcase its sustainability offerings at its EAM Customer Forum in Greenville, SC from November 7th to November 10th. Customers presenting at the forum include CERN, City of Des Moines, Lockheed Martin, Lowe's, Invenergy, and Wayne Farms.

Cloud-based Asset Management is Hot Topic at EAM Customer Forum
Infor recently held its annual EAM Customer Forum in Greenville, South Carolina, to discuss best practices and foster collaboration with more than 400 customers, partners and Infor product experts. Topics varied from product roadmaps and mobility, to green initiatives, but the benefits of cloud-based asset management was the hottest topic.
"One of the biggest challenges that we had as a new company in a new industry was obtaining true operating costs for our sites, as well as localizing data instead of having it at each site and on different servers," said Larry Spring, CMMS coordinator, Invenergy. "With the hosted environment, it's all in one place, and we have much greater corporate visibility to reach in and take a look at the data."
The cloud-based version of Infor10 EAM Enterprise provides users the same functionality as the on-premise version, but in an environment hosted by Infor, significantly reducing the cost of maintaining the software and easing the upgrade process.
Companies such as Invenergy, JBT AeroTech, Black Hills Corporation, and Keystone Foods, which use Infor10 EAM in the cloud, all shared positive experiences:
"We manage about 22 airports, and as far as being a maintenance company that's very diverse, it was important to find a solution and hosting company that could work with us to support a growing business and multiple locations that aren't connected by a wide area network," said Stephen Tatton, Business Systems and New Technology manager, JBT AeroTech. "It's unbelievable, the benefits we've had from being a hosted customer. We've only had two instances where the system has been down since 2002, one of which was an upgrade. We're up and running 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and working in airport environments, this is very critical to us."
"To have Infor applying the patches and keeping the data backed up has just been tremendously affordable and successful for us," said Sue Bidwell, principal software developer/analyst, Black Hills Corporation. "As a customer, I like not having to worry about the back up or the whole IT infrastructure that would be required for an on-site solution."
"When we initially evaluated solutions, our IT staff was smaller, and we didn't want to invest the money for all the equipment and hardware needed for a self-hosted product," said Jimmie Ellington, CMMS project manager, Keystone Foods. "We also knew that we needed to back up our information and wanted to have a secure system, so we decided to go with the hosted environment and let Infor take care of all the IT processes."
