TAMPA, Fla. & HOUSTON — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 2, 2010 — EnRoute Emergency Systems LLC, an Infor company, today announced the release of its next generation computer-aided dispatch (CAD) software. The release is an important step to bringing public safety agencies the latest in Microsoft technology to facilitate deployment of their mission critical applications.
The software, part of EnRoute Dispatch solutions, streamlines integration with standard software packages and infrastructure and provides EnRoute customers with a migration path enabling them to adopt technologies that are newer, faster, easier to use, as well as more cost effective to deploy and own.
The announcement is being made concurrent with the APCO 76th Annual Conference & Expo in Houston August 1−4. APCO is the world’s largest organization dedicated to public safety communications.
EnRoute’s product release follows news from Infor, EnRoute’s parent company, that Infor selected Microsoft as preferred technology and tools provider for Infor Software Solutions.
Next-generation Infor software solutions that use Microsoft tools and technologies will be designed to more tightly integrate widely adopted Microsoft server-based products and industry-standard technologies, enabling IT to deploy Infor solutions faster and manage them more easily.
Infor expects to accelerate the introduction of new products through increasing alignment with Microsoft technologies because it will allow greater code re-use, more standardization of technologies across applicable Infor applications, and decreased overall design complexity.
"In Infor we see a leading partner that is using the Microsoft platform to provide simplicity and flexibility for great customer value," said Walid Abu-Hadba, corporate vice president, Developer and Platform Evangelism, Microsoft Corporation.
"Companies want simplified, integrated solutions to help manage their business processes, and by integrating Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2, Silverlight and SharePoint 2010 into their solutions, Infor will help companies of all sizes-from SMBs to Fortune 500 companies-improve their efficiencies and reduce costs by simplifying how they use business software," said Abu-Hadba.
"The business software industry is at a crossroads," said Jim Schaper, chairman and chief executive officer of Infor. "For too long, business software vendors have failed to meet the needs of mid-size companies that are increasingly frustrated with the high cost and complexity of traditional enterprise applications that were designed for multi-billion dollar corporations.”
“By integrating the rich functionality of Infor's applications with Microsoft's intuitive technologies, we will be able to provide mid-size businesses with fast and affordable solutions that meet their functionality needs and are easy to use,” Schaper said. “This combination of power and simplicity is the direction our industry is headed."
