Inforum 2017 Diamond Sponsor Avaap to Showcase Innovation at Annual Conference
EDISON, N.J. (July 06, 2017)- Avaap, the largest IT services provider strategically focused on Infor and Epic software, today announced the successful go-live implementation of Infor CloudSuite Financials tightly integrated with Epic at Palos Health, a multi-facility community hospital based south of Chicago in Palos Heights, IL. Infor CloudSuite Financials (CSF) is a complete financial management platform delivered in the cloud with industry-specific functionality, end-to-end capabilities and robust integration. The implementation was completed on schedule in nine months and will be showcased at Inforum 2017, the largest annual Infor customer conference to be held July 10-12 in New York City.
Palos joined forces with Infor and Avaap to replace its legacy ERP system and transform finance and procurement operations, streamline and standardize payable and receivable processes, and take advantage of a modernized technology platform that’s optimized for growth. Infor CSF is built on Infor’s Xi technology platform and features cloud computing architecture, open source software, and in-memory computing technology, delivering high performance, support for open standards, enhanced productivity, responsive design, and mobile access via a wide range of devices – all without complex customizations.
As the 2017 Diamond sponsor of Inforum, Avaap will be joined on stage by Palos’ Vice President of Finance Roger Russell to talk about the implementation process, dynamic global ledger functionality, role-based design, and how working with systems integrator Avaap allowed Palos to achieve a faster deployment. In addition to sharing Palos’ go-live success during the opening session, Russell and the implementation team will deliver a case study presentation on Wednesday, July 12, highlighting lessons learned as an early adopter.
“This has been the most exciting technology implementation I’ve ever experienced,” said Russell. “Infor CloudSuite Financials’ next generation global ledger provides unprecedented flexibility, a full source to settle procurement solution and unified information for more informed decision-making and reporting, allowing us to bring true transformation to financial operations at Palos. Inforum attendees will learn how having a single vendor and strategic partnership for all operational needs and efficiencies has allowed Palos to implement in the most seamless manner possible and bring a consumer-grade experience to our financial and procurement teams.”
Added Avaap Vice President ERP Service Delivery Adam Goldstein, “Avaap has been an early investor in Infor CloudSuite Financials, developing an implementation methodology and training resources to help customers benefit from leading-practice application processes and quicker time to value. The Infor, Palos and Avaap teams worked diligently to demonstrate how powerful partnerships prevail. We are truly honored to support Palos and look forward to the next phase of collaboration between our three organizations.”
