How do you create a $2.2 billion company almost overnight through mergers and then build a sophisticated treasury operation from the ground up in just a year-and-a-half? Infor, a financial technology company based in suburban Atlanta, Ga., did it with a combination of good systems, good people and good legal structure. "We built a robust, complex business quickly, but we didn't have the infrastructure to go with it," recalls Mark Henry, treasurer and senior vice president of tax and risk management. "We were a technology company, but we were doing a lot of tasks manually. However, since 2006 we have automated and integrated a sophisticated treasury operation around our own financial software products."

Key treasury technology includes Infor's own Enterprise Resources Planning (ERP) system–third largest after SAP and Oracle–a new, installed SunGard Integrity treasury workstation, Weiland's bank account administration system and a Cognos module to handle cash reporting, explains Susan Lee, director of treasury.

Since a treasury workstation would be critical, Henry brought in consultancy Strategic Treasurer LLC, also in Atlanta, to help with the RFP and selection that ultimately led to Integrity. "We use our own software products extensively," Henry notes, "but the one type of financial system we don't offer is a treasury workstation on the level of SunGard."
