Infor Quote

"While change is a constant, the pace of change and the increase in citizen expectations in the public sector is unprecedented in our time as governments strive to quickly adapt. Most public sector responsibilities have no parallel in private industry. Software designed for general business use doesn't adequately address the unique challenges faced by public agencies," said Bryan Howe, vice president, International Public Sector, Infor. "We are confident that by partnering with Automation Consultants we will be able to meet the high public demands for top quality government services including emergency, safety and productivity systems throughout the public sector in the Middle East."
