The Netherlands: Boskalis Expands Partnership with Infor

Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that Boskalis, a leading service provider of all-round dredging and maritime solutions, will implement the Infor 10x version of Infor LN, which includes Infor ION, Infor Ming.le and Infor Business Intelligence (BI).

Infor’s software will support the organizational change process resulting from the growth Boskalis has experienced in recent years.

Boskalis is headquartered in Papendrecht, the Netherlands, and has more than 11,000 employees in 75 countries across 6 continents. The company is a world-leading expert in the field of dredging and maritime services. In 2012 Boskalis achieved its record revenue of EUR 3.1 billion. The company focuses on projects in the energy, ports and infra markets with primary clients including governments, oil companies, port operators, insurance companies, mining companies, shipping companies and international project developers.

Several changing conditions within the enterprise, such as the merging of companies, expansion of services and an increase in more complex, multi-segment projects created the need for a new IT solution. Boskalis elected to expand its cooperation with Infor because of the best fit for their goals, thirteen years of positive experience with Baan, outstanding support and Infor’s extensive expertise and business knowledge, with the overall performance of Infor software and the Infor 10x roadmap as the most decisive reasons.

Infor ION (Intelligent Open Network), part of the Infor technology stack, benefits Boskalis by delivering improved interoperability. The open middleware platform integrates Infor solutions such as Infor BI, Infor Expense Management (XM) and Infor Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) with third party software. Infor Ming.le provides a uniform user experience.

Getting the right information from our systems is crucial for Boskalis, and we need flexible and agile solutions to achieve our goals,” said Rien Krijger, ICT director, Boskalis. “We were impressed by the innovative, disruptive technologies that Infor produces, which allow them to be ahead in the market. With Infor 10x, we now have the necessary tools for increased control, helping us to standardize processes and further strengthen our global market position.”

“Companies such as Boskalis that are active across the world and exposed to increasing complexity and market changes must rely on innovative, fast, flexible and user-friendly software that can easily grow with business plans,” said Theo Koster, sales director, Infor Benelux. “The possibilities of Infor10x were evident to Boskalis. Infor 10x enables a modern, customer-inspired user experience that incorporates social, mobile and cloud computing in existing environments, unlocking hidden information and analytics when and where it is needed.
