It is not possible to run a business without proper recording keeping material. For small businesses which have less than five employees records can be kept even in writing- there is no need for sophisticated documenting. But for large companies such as major petroleum companies, pen and paper will be too much work. Therefore there is a need to use business administrative software. There are many companies which produce business software but the ones that stand out from the pack are Oracle Corp. SAP, IBM and Charles Phillips Infor. Any serious business person has heard of customer relationship management software, expense management, workers management and supply management software- has you ever stopped to ask yourself who produces these programs?
Business and music chairs
It has been said once that business is a game that any entrepreneur needs to know how to play in order to win against the competitors. Therefore this is why companies like Oracle Corp, Hewlett- Packard and Infor have been working so hard to come up with strategies that will enable them to boost their sales and increase the number of their customers. When it comes to experience, it is safe to say that one of the most experienced CEOs in the software production industry is Charles Phillips. Mr. Phillips just before being named Infor’s new CEO had been working at Oracle Corp. as a co-president alongside a lady called SafraCatz. Six weeks after moving from Oracle Corp. He was replaced by Hewlett-Packard’s former CEO, Mark Hurd.
At Infor, Mr. Phillips replaced Jim Schaper who remains as the chairman of the company. Larry Ellison the CEO of Oracle said that it was through Mr. Phillips’ efforts that the company was able to move towards becoming a more customer centered organization. Oracle is among the top three software producing companies but so is Charles Phillips Infor which is coming up. Recently it reached $2 billion in revenue. Through purchasing several smaller vendors the company has more than seventy thousand clients.
Charles Phillips has worked with several other companies in leadership positions. Just before he moved to Oracle he had been working at Morgan Stanley & Co. Inc. In as much as he has moved around a lot he still remains a member of the boards of:
