News points

  oInfor plans to integrate Infor10 EAM and ClickSoftware to help
    organizations achieve best-in-class schedule optimization for the
    management of large and complex resources, including the ability to allow
    schedule adjustments based on real-time feedback. Integration is
    accomplished with the use of Infor10 ION technology, Infor's lightweight
    middleware platform.
  oThe integrated application uses mobile capabilities to allow users to
    easily allocate resources that best fit specific work order tasks and
    adjust resource allocation based on live feedback from field service
    teams, boosting visibility and productivity.
  oInfor's partnership with ClickSoftware was established in response to
    increased demand for scheduling capabilities that can handle large
    personnel numbers, optimize complex crew availabilities, minimize schedule
    windows for specific assets or tools, and continually adjust to the
    demands of an internal and external workforce.
  oUK-based defense leader AWE (the Atomic Weapons Establishment) is the
    first company to deploy the integrated application, and plans to use the
    capabilities to reduce its carbon footprint and deliver productivity
    benefits across the business.
