Agilisys changed its name to Infor Global Solutions, effective Sept. 6. The company said the new name represents the company after the acquisitions it has made in the past two years. Most recently it purchased NxTrend, which helped it expand its presence in the distribution software market, in June (SUPPLY HOUSE TIMEs, July 2004, page 24).

The company provides enterprise software for distribution, automotive, specialty chemical/pharmaceutical, consumer packaged goods, discrete manufacturing, and food and beverage industries.

Ken Walters, president and COO, said the company's strategy is to continue its growth globally. “Our new name is intended to support that growth but does not indicate a change in our company's direction.”

The company launched a Web site,, to introduce the company's new brand identity.
