“We are just getting started but we are soon going to be at 100 employees here actually,” Pam Murphy, Infor COO said.

“We continue to expand and grow this new office as we land more business and more deals. We are super excited.”

Murphy said the company is still hiring for its Charleston location, which is one of 200 locations worldwide.

The company sells end to end industry specific solutions for the companies and industries that they serve. This includes manufacturing, distribution, public sector and healthcare.

Murphy said her company is different from the competitors because of the flexibility.

“Solutions that we provide for the public sector are very different from the systems that we produce for our manufacturing customers. That makes us different because of the other competitors in our field offer the same software and it needs to be tailored to fir their specific needs and specific requirements.”

She said two of the biggest reasons why Infor chose Charleston was a highly skilled and capable workforce along with the cost of living.

Mike Hall, chief of staff for Gov. Jim Justice, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin, U.S. Senator Shelly Moore Capito, Amy Goodwin, City of Charleston Mayor, Kevin Samuelson, Infor CEO, Ed Gaunch, West Virginia Commerce Secretary, and Murphy were all on hand for the ribbon cutting ceremony.
