Announcing: Infor plans to acquire Starmount to accelerate converged commerce
Infor has agreed to acquire Starmount—an innovative retail software company out of Austin, Texas—to accelerate the release of Infor’s Converged Commerce Solution, which will provide retailers a single selling platform across channels.
Infor CloudSuite™ Retail will be enhanced with modern Demand Management, Merchandising, Supply Chain, and Commerce solutions—all backed by an enterprise-class information hub that provides all the data, integration, and process orchestration needed to deliver true omni-channel customer engagement through:
- User-centered design
- Native mobility
- The elasticity and simplicity of cloud computing
- Modern omni-channel architecture
- Support of every in-store interaction
We’re launching a revolution.
Imagine a single, holistic, and fully integrated system that covers—and connects—every facet of your business. Predictive analytics and smart data to improve business processes. Beautiful, intuitive designs to enhance user engagement. Delivery in the cloud so it’s easier to deploy, integrate, and update. A unifying omnichannel experience that’s mobile, social—and millennial.
That’s what we’re building. Yet we’re smart enough to know we can’t do it alone. We’re partnering with savvy retailers to make not just the best retail system ever created, but one that’s grounded in the reality of today’s business environment and ready to adapt to meet tomorrow’s challenges.
Retail will never be the same.
