Yesterday, SAP AG announced the acquisition of Triversity, a leading North American provider of point-of-sale (POS) software solutions, for an undisclosed sum. The Toronto-based company’s retail solutions include traditional and enterprise point-of-sale, store inventory management, POS loss prevention, store back-office, and in-store and multi-channel customer service, among other things. According to SAP, Triversity’s solutions are “highly complementary” to SAP’s existing retail solution offering. Moreover, Triversity has more than 250 retail customers, among them a number of joint customers with SAP. The transaction is scheduled for completion in October.
At the same time, SAP announced that 28 Oracle customers had chosen its “Safe Passage” program since its launch in January 2005. A few days before, SAP had expanded its safe passage program with a business process outsourcing offering.
