City of Moncton Embarks on Pioneering Connectivity and Collaboration Program

Infor Ming.le to Deliver a Centralized Platform for Social Collaboration, Business Process Improvement, and Contextual Analytics

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 29, 2014) - Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that the City of Moncton, located in New Brunswick, Canada, has completed an important step in its effort to deliver a step-change in public management through technology. The city has upgraded to the latest version of the Infor Public Sector suite (Hansen), including Infor Community Development Regulation (CDR), Work Management and Customer Relationship Management (CRM). Next, the city will implement Infor Ming.le™ to integrate information from these systems into a centralized, enterprise-wide collaboration platform to help optimize employee interactions and allow users to follow information via events, people, activities and tasks within their organization.

Key city officials elected to upgrade in order to remain current on their Infor applications and to benefit from the customer service functionality and added flexibility. The project, which was completed under budget in only five months, allows the city to more easily change and integrate new applications in the future.

News Points

  • Infor applications have simplified daily tasks for City of Moncton users by reducing the number of systems that they utilize. In the past, employees had to access components such as the Geographic Information System (GIS) separately. Now, with an integrated approach, they have a more holistic view of critical data directly through the Infor system.
  • The city has the option to easily configure the overall look-and-feel of the applications and can tailor screens to deliver role-specific information to end users. Through faster access to real-time data, Infor helps to increase the speed and efficiency for employees in their day-to-day processes.
  • Now that the city is utilizing a web-based version of Infor applications, they expect to require less support from the internal IT department. Users can also access the system from any location, as there is no longer a need to physically install applications on each employee's computer.
  • In the future, the city plans to deploy Infor Ming.le to facilitate greater collaboration and communication between users and activities. The implementation of Infor Ming.le will allow users to follow event-driven tasks and utilize valuable information in real-time. This style of next-generation connectivity enables users to work smarter and faster by staying up to speed with events as they unfold. City officials and management are also considering the use of Infor Motion™ to provide users in the field with direct access via their mobile device.
