Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, announced on Monday, March 4, that it has reached an agreement to acquire CERTPOINT Systems Inc.
Based in Roslyn Heights, New York, Certpoint is widely regarded as an innovative provider of SaaS-based learning management software (LMS) and learning content management software. CERTPOINT has a strong global presence, serving more than 1,300 businesses in more than 80 countries and 30 languages. CERTPOINT’s customers include global brands and leading organizations such as Honda, Stanley Black & Decker, Lutheran Medical Center, Meritas Health, and Toyota.
After a thorough evaluation of the marketplace, Infor will acquire CERTPOINT for its thought leadership and ability to deliver contextual, social, and mobile learning technologies that have transformed the discipline of learning from a back-office support function to an extended enterprise talent optimization tool.
“Infor and CERTPOINT share a common culture—a focus on innovation and business impact,” said Ara Ohanian, CEO and chief happiness officer, CERTPOINT. “Our aim is to offer clients all the advantages of our combined strengths, building further on our ability to transform knowledge into tangible business results.
The acquisition of CERTPOINT will make the Infor Human Capital Management Suite among the most comprehensive end-to-end offerings the market has to offer, by providing innovative, complementary LMS capabilities that help companies educate and train employees, distributors, partners, and customers. CERTPOINT’s globalized learning technologies extend Infor’s top-ranked talent, payroll, human resource and workforce management solutions, all unified with Infor’s market-leading Enwisen HR Service Delivery platform.
Financial terms of the deal are not being disclosed. The transaction is expected to be completed by April 1, 2013.
