Proactis Group, the spend control and e-procurement software provider, has partnered with UK-based Lake, a provider of spend control solutions based on Proactis and Infor FMS SunSystems.
Building on its regional partner network, Proactis has appointed Lake as its UK master distributor for Proactis’ complete range of software products to Infor FMS SunSystems customers. The range includes purchase-to-pay (P2P), employee expenses, e-invoices, supplier relationship management, e-sourcing, contracts management, and e-catalogue management.
Master distributor status will see a closer co-operation between Proactis and Lake, bringing tangible benefits for Infor FMS SunSystems customers, including access to out-of-the-box integration between Proactis Spend Control and Infor FMS SunSystems, specialist cross-platform reporting tools and added value services aimed at helping clients maximise the value of a combined Proactis and Infor FMS SunSystems solution.
As part of the new agreement, the two companies are building closer ties between their respective client support and development teams. This latest partner appointment by Proactis is part of the company’s strategic plans to strengthen its focus in key geographic regions and technology markets.
