LONDON, Aug.3, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Infor, the industry’s cloud computing company, today announced that Group of sparrows, a specialist in engineering and maintenance services for the global energy and industrial sectors, has decided to move its existing Infor EAM on-premises asset management system to the Infor cloud as part of its program digital transformation.

Sparrows Group has a long-standing relationship with Progressive, which has been its Infor EAM partner since initial implementation in 2015. Sparrows Group has benefited from the rich functionality of Infor EAM for many years. Infor EAM is already helping to drive the group’s end-to-end purchasing and supply chain management process. This is coupled with the powerful Infor OS platform for purchase approval on mobile devices. The multi-currency solution is used throughout Europe by Sparrows, Middle East, African and Asian sites.
Sparrows decided now is the time to reap the benefits of a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution. The company asked Progressive to use its specialized expertise to support it in the next step of its digital journey. Infor’s cloud solution will help support 400 Sparrows asset management and provisioning users, and Sparrows’ remaining on-premises systems will be integrated into the new cloud EAM.
The move to the multi-tenant Infor cloud brings the potential for significant cost savings and business benefits to Sparrow Group, including:
Lower total cost of ownership
Transparent access to the latest updates and innovations
Improved performance, reliability and availability
“We are delighted to have agreed to move to the Infor cloud,” said Michael reid, director of financial systems for the Sparrows group. âThe benefits of SaaS were clear, automatic software updates and cybersecurity compliance are just a few of the many benefits. We look forward to working with Progressive to move from our current on-premise solution.
âWe applaud Sparrows for making the forward-looking decision to move to a SaaS EAM solution,â said Chris Walcot, CEO of Progressive TSL. âProgressive will use its technical expertise and specialized tools to ensure a smooth transition of Sparrows Group’s 400 Infor EAM users to the Infor cloud. “
âWith Infor EAM’s breadth of capabilities, Sparrows has been able to optimize its supply chain and procurement operations that surround its asset management business,â said Anwen robinson, Infor GM and SVP from UK & Ireland. âBy using Infor EAM in the cloud, Sparrows can expect more transparency, control and better decision-making options, helping to improve the performance and efficiency of its global operations.
