Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced its partnership with Travis Perkins, the UK's largest distributor of building materials.

Travis Perkins operates more than 20 businesses spanning the trade, construction and home improvement markets with more than 2,000 outlets across the UK. Embarking upon its most significant investment in information technology to date, Travis Perkins selected Infor CloudSuite™ to deliver a variety of strategic, technical, and financial benefits with the goal of enhancing the experience for its customers and employees across the business.

"We have a national footprint and an evolving customer base who are increasingly relying on digital technology to do business. We therefore wanted to equip our colleagues with simple IT solutions in Branch", said John Carter, CEO of Travis Perkins plc.

"Through working in partnership with Infor we will embark on implementing the biggest systems change in the history of Travis Perkins Group which will enable us to remain agile, increase our productivity and to keep providing excellent customer service".

Infor Services, in cooperation with Travis Perkins, will manage the CloudSuite implementation for its merchant businesses and the solution will be deployed in the cloud. The solution will provide increased flexibility to adapt to changing market conditions, bring new locations and facilities on-line, and vary processes across multiple business units, as well as the capacity to support continued growth. Ease-of-use was also an important factor in the selection of Infor CloudSuite by Travis Perkins, as the company strives to provide an exceptional experience for its people. 

"To be chosen to support an iconic group like Travis Perkins, with a rich history that spans more than 200 years, to help transform its business is a tremendous honor for Infor, and a testament to our strategy of delivering intuitive, beautiful applications with mission-critical functionality in the cloud," said Stephan Scholl, president of Infor.
