Mediasurface (UK, AIM: MSR), the fastest growing content management solution provider, has announced that Infor has rolled out Morello across the enterprise to manage central and regional websites in 26 regions worldwide

14 May 2007: Infor, a provider of business specific software that helps enterprising organisations of all sizes adapt to change, today announced that it has adopted Morello from Mediasurface to manage web content across the enterprise. The new Infor site has just gone live and plans to re-launch all of the company’s 26 regional sites are currently under way with completion planned for the end of June 2007.

Infor has enjoyed rapid growth in recent years, both organically and through acquisitions, and was looking for a content management solution that would help them manage their extensive global portfolio across 26 regions. The requirement for a single technology that would support their internet, extranet and intranet activities while remaining easy and intuitive for business contributors to use was paramount. Morello provides an easy to use platform that requires minimal training for operation. The infrastructure is easy to adopt and the scalable nature of the solution allows it to be adjusted for multiple areas of operation.

Following the successful implementation of Infor’s website, plans are now underway to manage the company’s intranet on Morello. Once the intranet is transferred to Morello, employees will have the ability to manage online content and distribute documents themselves without the assistance of the web development team, therefore making the intranet a much more valuable marketing platform for Infor.

Venson Kuchipudi, Senior Director Inter Marketing for Infor commented:

“Our web content is an important part of our business model and our intranet is a large part of our marketing machine. Being able to manage all these elements, including our regional sites, on one platform is a real asset to the company. With the main website we went from concept to roll out in less than six months. Another major benefit was the minimal level of training, which only required a one day training session in order to get our business users up, running and contributing to the site. Now that business users can edit their own online content, the web development team has ceased to be a bottle neck when it comes to keeping content up to date.”

Andy Peart, Chief Marketing Officer for Mediasurface said:

“With content creators having the ability to upload directly this is a huge benefit for the IT department as they can now focus on other areas without causing issues for the web content of the company. The relationship with Infor came about through our work with SSA Global, a Morello user that was acquired by Infor. They were able to re-brand their site instantly following the acquisition and this impressed Infor to the point where they wanted to work with us on an enterprise wide level. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Infor in the future and helping them to further develop their online presence.”
