We’re kicking off the new year with some exciting news. Today, we’d like to welcome Germany-based Gastrofix, a local leader in hospitality POS, to the Lightspeed family.
2019 was a big year for Lightspeed as we completed a series of major acquisitions, including golf course management solution Chronogolf, Switzerland-based POS provider iKentoo, and Australia-based Kounta. Now, by joining forces with Gastrofix, we’re building upon its existing presence in countries such as Germany, Austria, and Norway.
Lightspeed is committed to bringing together the best minds in the industry in order to provide the world’s best business tools to our customers. Expanding physically into the German market brings us powerful new resources that we can use to innovate, grow, and serve our customers even better.
“Gastrofix and Lightspeed’s common goal of digitizing the hospitality industry with versatile, efficient solutions made the pairing a perfect match,” says Dax Dasilva, Founder and CEO of Lightspeed. “We are proud to bring on board Gastrofix with their talented team of POS solution providers. This, combined with our evolving cloud-based offerings, will create new opportunities for hospitality businesses to reach their highest potential amidst shifts in the industry.”
As we look towards the future, it is important to take a moment and appreciate how far we’ve come. We’d like to thank all of our customers and employees for an incredible 2019 and couldn’t be more thrilled about what’s to come in 2020.
