Also Monday, Infor announced that it plans to move its main corporate office from Alpharetta, Georgia, to New York, a shift that underscores the changes ongoing at the company. Some shared services, such as human resources, will remain in Georgia.
Infor plans to hire about 75 engineers and graphic designers for the New York office, on top of the 400 hires announced earlier this year, according to spokesman Dan Barnhardt.
The "Innovation Center" Infor plans to open "will focus on the development of new technology that spans our product portfolio such as the Workspace user experience and the integration of social applications in a collaborative environment," he said via email. "We want the best and the brightest working on our development team, and we are tapping in to the talent pool that has been built in New York."
Infor is continuing to develop the Lawson products and will augment them with Infor-led technologies such as Workspace and the ION integration framework, Barnhardt said.
