Touchstone FMS Business Unit HeadMore
Last week we had the pleasure of being a gold sponor for Infor’s first UK and Ireland EAM (Enterprise Asset Management) Summit, not quite on the scale of Inforum 2019 held in New Orleans in warm September, but The Midland Hotel in Manchester on a rather drizzly autumn day. Thankfully, that is the only negative thing I can say about the event, and I’m not sure even Infor EAM can control the weather!
Hats off to Infor they organised a well attended, engaging and very informative day for customers and channel partners of Infor EAM. Around 100 people turned up on the day from Infor, channel partners and customers. Infor were well represented including UK&I Managing Director, Simon Quinton, Regional VP (EMEA) for EAM Frederic Russo and a number of other senior managers all of whom added value to the day.
The agenda was well put together and contained a well balanced mix of product and technology update sessions, roadmap, partner presentations, complementary product presentations and interesting user case stadies. Transport for Greater Manchester talked about their recent Go live on EAM, Atomic Weapons Establishment a long time user of EAM and then a couple of case studies from partners. During our partner presentation I was proud to not only talk about Touchstone and the work we do with EAM but I was especially pleased to introduce our client Ports of Jersey who are the stars of a recent video case study for us, and to give the video its world premiere!
In putting this summit together I believe Infor have found a great new formula to engage with customers, partners and their subject matter experts in an interesting, engaging and constructive way; so why not a Summit for SunSystems or d/EPM? I’ve already asked the question, so watch this space.
In closing, there is an event that I believe all users (or prospective users) of Infor software should be attending (and which you can now register for) and that’s Infor Inspire, to be held on 3rd March 2020 in London at ExCel. This is your chance to hear it from the top; from Kevin Samuelson Infor’s new CEO, Cormac Watters Infor EVP for EMEA and GM International Markets and Soma Somasundaram CTO, President Products. As well as sessions from the Infor top team, there will be education sessions, product updates and opportunities to network with your peers as well as the Touchstone team who will also be attending, I look forward to seeing you there.
