Gulfsands Goes Live with Financial System Move into the Cloud with Infor and Progressive TSL
Infor recently announced that independent energy company Gulfsands has deployed Infor SunSystems Cloud as its financial platform via Infor Gold Channel Partner Progressive TSL. Gulfsands is already seeing increased security, reduced risk, and improved functionality and performance. Per the press release, with a multi-tenant model, the smaller IT footprint will minimize administration and task duplication, enabling easier, more consistent access across the world, and a sharper, more-informed focus on its core business goals. It also eliminates the environmental impacts of maintaining an in-house IT infrastructure. Gulfsands, being London based and with recent openings in Abu Dhabi, UAE, opted for a cloud deployment to take advantage of having no physical servers, with reduced risk, cost and improved security as a result, as well as the updated functionality and capabilities in the latest version of SunSystems. Further, the cloud delivers a much easier way of supporting an increasingly dispersed workforce, as users can now access the system seamlessly from wherever they are in the world, which will be a huge benefit as the company scales.
