TPMTech: The Evolution of Infor Nexus
Two decades ago, Infor Nexus (then called GT Nexus) was an outsider in the logistics technology world, aiming to paint a new cloud-based version of how supply chains could run. But for a few years, the company has grappled with transitioning from the upstart to the incumbent. Product maturity brings stability, but companies that have lasted can also be perceived as being static, especially as venture capital has fueled a thousand new brands targeting parts of what Infor Nexus provides its customers. Over the past decade, GT Nexus (at the time) has merged with its kindred spirit, Tradecard, been acquired by ERP provider Infor, and was rumored to be for sale during the pandemic. In this one-on-one discussion, Heidi Benko, vice president of product management and solutions strategy, will discuss the lure of single end-to-end software suites, the company’s staying power, the challenge of competing with newer entrants, and where Infor Nexus goes from here.
