Infor Acquires Vivonet, Extending Its Restaurant Management and POS Capabilities

The addition of Vivonet's robust restaurant POS platform capabilities, which also includes inventory and procurement functionality for companies in the foodservice management sector as well as for full and quick service restaurant, and hotel food and beverage micro-verticals, should be a good fit for Infor.

Infor, a leading provider of cloud-based hospitality solutions, has acquired Vivonet, which offers solutions for POS, kiosks, kitchen systems, payments, labor scheduling, and food and labor cost management. Infor already has hospitality functionality that covers property management, revenue management, asset and incident management, analytics, and artificial intelligence.
