2 former IBM general managers to fund hospitality industry mobile platform

DVI Equity Partners, LLC (DVI) has announced an investment of capital and strategic growth expertise in Tacit Innovations Corp, the company said.

The investment brings together former IBM general managers Robert Griffin, now DVI managing partner, and Marc Altshuller, now Tacit chairman, who both believe Tacit´s mobile platform Maeganâ„¢ is a game changer for the hospitality industry. The platform integrates existing point-of-sale, payment, loyalty and student card systems to measurably improve efficiency, profits and customer experiences.

A recent survey conducted by orderTalk, a provider of online ordering software, indicates more than 45 percent of US adults will increase their use of online ordering within the next 12 months, joining the nearly two-thirds of Americans who regularly make digital purchases.

Griffin added that DVI´s investment in Tacit is in keeping with its stated mission to support companies founded and led by women and minorities. Tacit founders are entrepreneurs Cris Jucan and Brenda Crainic.

Griffin will join Tacit´s co-founders Cris and Brenda, along with Altshuller and Joel Shapiro, Professor of Data Analytics at Kellogg School of Management, on the Tacit board of directors.

Tacit Innovations is devoted to changing the face of the hospitality industry by increasing efficiency, lowering costs and delivering greater customer satisfaction. The company became a provider of the order and payments industry by offering a flexible and easy-to-implement solution that delivers proven results. Tacit works with many of the most prominent companies in the managed food services space, such as multi-unit brands, campuses, stadiums and corporate dining.
