Atlanta, GA, December 02, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- Infor, one of the largest global providers of enterprise software, and Atrion International, a global software company focused on regulatory compliance, will explore how companies can ensure regulatory compliance while minimizing the total cost of maintaining compliancy through an integrated solution during a live joint webinar, “Proactively Monitoring and Designing Compliance Into Your Products,” Tuesday, December 5, 2006. Atrion International and Infor partner to provide Infor PLM Optiva, a single, real-time, company-wide point of reference for compliance issues throughout the product lifecycle.
As companies look to enter new markets, expected revenue gains are often offset by increased regulatory and compliance support costs, fines and market withdrawals. To fully capitalize on these emerging opportunities, companies need to minimize the cost and lead-time to be compliant, while protecting corporate image and brand equity.
“As a leader in providing enterprise solutions to process manufacturers worldwide, Infor understands how critical compliance is to strategically growing these types of businesses, whether through globalization or product innovation,” said Rory Granros, Infor process industry and product marketing manager. “This webinar will highlight proactive compliance strategies to help lower total cost of ownership, become fully compliant and improve product penetration rates in new markets.”
Additionally, companies will learn how compliance risks can be reduced by implementing an integrated PLM solution, resulting in on-time product launches, faster market penetration, and, potentially, an increase in revenue and profits.
When: December 5, 2006 from 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EDT
Who: Rory Granros, process industry and product marketing manager, Infor
Ken Bubeck, manager of business development, Atrion International, Inc.
