What is Infor Public Sector (IPS)

Infor Public Sector is a suite of applications made for all levels of government. The IPS suite of applications includes solutions for budgeting, finance, procurement, asset management, etc. to help meet the needs of public entities. This system is typically utilized to improve service with features that maximize responsiveness to demand for citizen services like 311, emergency management, or education and transportation needs.
