Infor is partnering with DBS Bank, Southeast Asia’s largest bank, to integrate digital trade financing capabilities into the Infor Nexus global network of more than 68,000 businesses. Per the press release, the two companies’ first joint program recently went live with one of the world’s largest global apparel companies, providing faster and more cost-efficient digital trade financing to suppliers in the apparel company’s supply chain ecosystem, which comprises mostly small-to-medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).  Gary Schneider, VP of sales for Infor Financial Supply Chain Management, comments, “This is an important relationship for Infor, where a common vision of data-driven financing bonds us and presses us forward.
