With this successful collaboration, GIV Solutions extended its portfolio of offerings with vertical industries based on INFOR EAM™, adding them to the traditional EAM and Asset management industries.

The firm’s solutions handle the inspections, real time monitoring, analytics and algorithms for optimal usage of budget in maintenance and life cycle support of infrastructure. Additionally, the solutions allow effective collaboration between the organizational parties involved, including external contractors and public.
