Infor has announced that The Edgewater in downtown Madison, Wis. has selected Infor SunSystems, the hospitality-specific application for financial management.

The Edgewater chose Infor SunSystems because of its hospitality-focused accounting functionality and ability to meet the hotel’s needs right out-of-the-box without requiring extensive customization. Its combination of usability and flexible, scalable architecture will help the hotel prepare for future growth, as The Edgewater can easily expand or alter its use of the application to meet changing business demands.

“The Edgewater was looking for a financial package that would meet our current and future operational needs. We needed a system that gave us ease of transactional processing as well as overall reliance on the financial output,” said Laura Klocke, controller of The Edgewater. “Infor SunSystems is a turnkey solution that incorporates time saving integrations with our POS and PMS systems. In addition, it offers a comprehensive budget package that gives us greater insight into our numbers, which improves our financial decisions and ultimately facilitates a better experience for our guests.”

By automating manual processes and automatically capturing financial data across all business units, Infor SunSystems will allow The Edgewater’s finance department to focus on more value-add tasks for the organization, rather than spending time processing transactions. The application’s in-context business intelligence capabilities will also enable decision-makers to drill down into comprehensive, real-time data, allowing them to analyze financial information to identify areas for potential cost savings and increased efficiency, as well as create custom reports to more easily demonstrate compliance.

“Infor recognizes that purpose-built financials are critical in today’s hospitality market, where hoteliers are continuously looking for new ways to reduce costs and increase profitability,” said Stewart Applbaum, senior vice president and general manager of Infor Hospitality. “Infor SunSystems helps companies to optimize profitability by delivering the metrics decision-makers need to derive actionable insights about their business in real time.”

Infor SunSystems combines financial management with purchasing, inventory and performance management to deliver accurate, real-time information on everything from established key performance indicators (KPIs) to critical tax data. The Edgewater will integrate Infor SunSystems with its existing property management system (PMS) and point of sale (POS) application using Infor ION®, a lightweight middleware platform that enables connectivity between both Infor and third-party systems. This will create enterprise-wide visibility for The Edgewater, helping managers to improve strategic decision-making based on greater insight into revenue and spending.
