US-based cloud software provider Infor has completed its acquisition of retail software developer Starmount, in a move that will help accelerate delivery of its new Infor CloudSuite Retail enterprise applications.

The company first announced the deal at Inforum, its annual user conference, in July.

Starmount provides point-of-sale, 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.

Infor is investing heavily in products that help retailers meet the new demands of the industry, including converged commerce, the next step after omni-channel, in which retailers use a single selling system for all consumer interactions.

According to the software provider, not only does converged commerce improve the customer experience with accurate and timely information across all touchpoints, but it's also cheaper to operate, avoiding many of the costly integrations necessary with traditional omni-channel approaches.

Texas-based Starmount experienced 41% year-over-year growth in 2015 and counts among its customers Abercrombie & Fitch, Burlington Coat Factory, Perry Ellis, and Urban Outfitters.

Terms of the deal are not being disclosed. It follows Infor's recent acquisitions of the GT Nexus global commerce platform and Predictix for demand management.
