Certpoint Systems of Roslyn Heights to be bought by Infor

Certpoint Systems Inc., a Roslyn Heights business software developer, has agreed to be acquired by Infor, a larger competitor based in Manhattan.

Certpoint, founded in 1996, has about 100 employees, including 50 on Long Island. It publishes software in 30 languages, used by 1,300 businesses in more than 80 countries.

Infor, which employs about 12,400 people, did not disclose terms of the sale, scheduled to close by April 1. In a statement announcing the deal, the company said acquiring Certpoint would broaden its reach in sectors including health care, automotive, finance and manufacturing.

“Infor and Certpoint share a common culture -- a focus on innovation and business impact,” said Ara Ohanian, who describes himself as chief executive and happiness officer of the Long Island company.

Certpointwas among the few Long Island companies to receive venture capital funding last year, securing $1.6 million.
