Infor, provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, has announced that metals trader Interalloys UK has invested in Infor SunSystems. The application is designed to deliver complete financial management to the trading start-up, with transparent, easily understood reports across non-ferrous concentrate, minor metals and iron ore desks.
Following a thorough review of the market, Interalloys UK chose SunSystems on the basis of its flexibility and the options available for formatting reports. Hosted by Infor partner Nixe as part of a strategy to reduce the initial capital expenditure and enable a stringent service level agreement, SunSystems expects to mitigate risk with global, web-based access and automatic back-ups.
"SunSystems is an excellent fit for us in a number of ways," commented Alex Vallet, CFO, Interalloys UK. "We looked at alternative options but they did not offer the right structure for us. By comparison, the options offered by SunSystems struck a good balance between flexibility and guidance. Critically, SunSystems offers us this whilst still being big enough for us to grow with the application. And as traders, we are driven by profit and loss, so the reporting offered by SunSystems was another key factor for our choice."
"As an agile start up in a keenly competitive field, it is vital for a business such as Interalloys UK to capitalise on the latest developments in technology and processes from the very start," said Jon Casey, director, financial management solutions, Infor. "SunSystems delivers this best practice in a cost-effective manner and will offer Interalloys the flexibility to support new growth strategies and help meet complex regulatory requirements."
