Charles Phillips: Infor soars in the healthcare industry

When Charles Phillips’ Infor acquired Lawson Software in July last year, critics considered the merger as the event that truly sealed the ERP vendor’s place among software giants like Oracle and SAP. With an extensive mark in HCM technology in industries like healthcare, Lawson was seen as an extremely valuable addition to Infor’s ranks—an expectation that Lawson has fulfilled several times then and now.

Indeed, the developments over the last few months since Infor’s acquisition of Lawson have proven the latter’s worth. Aside from helping the ERP system provider successfully place itself as one of the most reliable platforms in human capital management (HCM), Lawson also helped expand the industries covered by Charles Phillips’ Infor. Apart from being a leader in the aerospace and automotive sectors, Infor now counts itself among the ERP providers that call the healthcare industry their turf—with recognition to emphasize it.

Infor’s Lawson Healthcare placed 29th on the 2012 Healthcare Informatics 100, a listing of leading healthcare IT vendors in terms of revenue in the United States. It was released by Healthcare Informatics, a magazine for healthcare IT leaders, in partnership with market research firms Porter Research and ST Advisors. The rankings were based on revenues from products and services during the fiscal year 2011, back when Lawson was still operating as Infor’s affiliate.
