Infor Acquires Vivonet: What’s the Deal?

By now, you’ve read the press release and have some perspective on the news. As of September 17, 2018, global technology innovators Infor have acquired Vivonet.

But, what does this very good news mean for existing Vivonet customers, or technology leaders in the hospitality industry who want to learn more about how Infor can help their businesses succeed?

To help put it all into practical context, here’s a set of frequently asked questions, and a list of resource links to help you understand what Infor is about, where we’re going as an organization, and what the advantages to hospitality organizations will be as a result.

Who is Infor anyway?

Infor is a global leader in providing cloud-based software for specific industries in 170 countries. That includes hospitality companies. The company generates approximately $3 billion in annual revenue with 16,500 plus employees worldwide who have a passion for customer success.

Differentiating by industry, Infor provides “last mile” functionality in complete mission-critical software suites as multi-tenant cloud applications. Infor customers include Kempinski Hotels, Mohegan Sun, Emirates Palace, Accor Hotels, and Temmos Hotels, just to name a few.

Why did Infor acquire Vivonet?

Infor and Vivonet share a vision for providing cloud-based solutions to the hospitality sector that includes enterprise level restaurants and food services providers as well as hotel brands. By investing in and developing cloud-based solutions, both companies have independently sought to create ways for hospitality businesses to be smarter and more data-driven, to scale their operations more cost-effectively as the competitive landscape shifts and changes, and to help them deliver a consistently superior guest experience.

This common focus presents a natural progression for Vivonet, and a significant value-add for Infor, too. Infor now has the capacity to deliver a more complete hospitality solution, particularly for companies in the food service management, full and quick service restaurants, and hotel food-and-beverage outlet sub-verticals. That’s an exciting prospect for everyone.

What does it mean for Vivonet customers?

On a practical level, contacts at Vivonet will not change for existing customers and operations will continue as they are. Of course, we've expanded the base of expertise around cloud technology, AI, predictive analytics, data science, and beyond.

In an evolving hospitality industry that relies more and more on fast and data-driven business strategy, this is very good news for Vivonet customers.

Where do Vivonet customers go to learn more about Infor?
