US: Infor Completes Acquisition of Starmount

Infor, a provider of business applications specialised by industry and built for the cloud, has completed the acquisition of Starmount, a modern store systems provider serving large and mid-market retailers. No financial details of the deal were disclosed.

Starmount provides POS, mobile shopping assistant, and store inventory management products along with a data-rich commerce hub to engage shoppers, streamline operations, and support consistent cross-channel customer interactions.  The company counts Abercrombie & Fitch, Burlington Coat Factory, Perry Ellis, and Urban Outfitters among its customers.

Infor said the deal will help accelerate delivery of Infor CloudSuite Retail, a modern suite of enterprise applications delivered in the cloud.  The company noted: “The market is littered with antiquated software built 20 or 30 years ago that just can’t provide what modern retailers need. They want alternatives, built in the cloud, with native support for mobile.  This acquisition will help Infor bring such solutions to market faster.”
