Independent energy company Gulfsands recently selected Infor SunSystems Cloud as its financial platform via Infor Gold Channel Partner Progressive TSL. The first customer of the multi-tenant cloud financial application, Gulfsands stands to benefit from increased security, reduced risk, and a smaller physical and environmental IT footprint, enabling greater resource availability and focus on its core business goals. Per the press release, Gulfsands selected Infor SunSystems Cloud having been a long-standing SunSystems on-premises user. As an independent, public energy company with a growth strategy, having a robust platform from which to support its potential, scale and business expansion is crucial, as is the ability to handle the varying currency, taxation and legislative demands of a wider geographic reach. Additionally, the cloud delivers a much easier way of supporting an increasingly dispersed workforce, whether it involves finance professionals working from home or in geographically-spread projects and teams.
