Infor buys retail software maker Starmount


Enterprise software vendor Infor said it has acquired Starmount to bolster CloudSuite Retail with more converged commerce offerings. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Starmount makes point-of-sale, mobile shopping, and store inventory management software for omni-channel retailers. Infor has been keenly focused on the retail industry since the launch of its Infor Retail business unit last summer. The launch coincided with a collaboration with Whole Foods Market to implement and iterate on the CloudSuite Retail platform, with Whole Foods serving as a sort of test lab for how the software could revamp its merchandising and supply chain operations.
