Infor acquires process ERP vendor, IncoDev

Just a few days after changing its name from Agilisys, Infor Global Solutions is back on the acquisition trail, picking up process ERP vendor IncoDev.

Okay, I'll admit it. Until reading Infor's press release, I had never heard of IncoDev. It just goes to show how many enterprise software vendors there still are out there, in spite of the consolidation currently underway in the industry.

Some background on IncoDev. The company, founded in 1982, is headquartered in Hamburg, Germany. The press release says that it "provides ERP software to large and midsized companies within the chemical, dyes and paints, life science, food and beverage industries." It sells direct in Germany and through partners in other western European countries. It claims over 200 customers

IncoDev's software offering, Blending 5.7, provides functionality for financial management, production planning and inventory management for specific process industries. They also claim that it is "certified for the pharmaceutical industry" (although it is not clear by whom.) The solution also includes integrated quality management, a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) and hazardous materials management.

Addition of IncoDev's offerings strengthens Infor's process industry credentials, which were already established through its original product, Adage, which it inherited from its spinoff from SCT.
