Infor sued by customer over license audit

Mid-market enterprise resource planning vendor Infor is being sued by one of its customers in the US, PC World has reported today.

BMP America says Infor unfairly imposed extra fees following a license audit.

The dispute revolves around BMP America’s use of Infor’s MAPICS application. Infor says the textiles manufacturer allow its Asian sister company, BMP Asia, and its local system integrator to access the application.

Infor says both BMP Asia and the systems integrator must each pay a one-off license fee of around $75,000.

BMP disputes this, arguing that it only used the system to service BMP America customers based in Asia, and was therefore operating within the terms of its existing of its own licenses. It is seeking recognition from a New York court that it does not owe Infor any more money.

Infor does not commnet on ongoing legal disputes, the company said.
