"Today we are going to depend on supervisors to make those choices, to have those conversations with employees and good supervisors help employees get to the right role at the right time. But to be completely dependent on supervisors means we are leaving some of that to chance, and in a global organisation where we have 130,000 employees, technology can better inform us with those things - when the jobs are ready and the people are ready for those jobs. So that is the purpose for installing HCM."
There are also plans in place to deploy cloud financial software, as well as its enterprise asset management [EAM] tools.
"We are looking completely to Cloud Suite Financials for our primary financial systems - we are in the process of doing that now. And then we are looking EAM very closely. We view EAM as one of Infor's best products, and it has the chance to do a lot of predictive work for us in future."
