RedPrairie Demonstrates Continued Focus on Supply Chain in the Cloud


Global Supply Chain and Retail Technology Provider Announces Launch of On-Demand Supply Chain Business Unit

RedPrairie Corporation, a global supply chain and retail technology provider, today announced the launch of RedPrairie On-Demand Supply Chain, an operating business unit dedicated to delivering supply chain solutions in the cloud. As part of the company's on-demand product roadmap, RedPrairie On-Demand Supply Chain will support advanced functionality for warehouse management (WMS) and transportation management (TMS) delivered in both a single and multi-tenant model.

After acquiring on-demand WMS provider SmartTurn and on-demand TMS provider Shippers Commonwealth, in 2010 and 2011 respectively, RedPrairie became the only provider to offer a complete supply chain solution in the cloud.

According to Brian Schoenbaechler, general manager of IntegraCore, a third-party logistics provider and RedPrairie customer, "Supply chain visibility is at the heart of our client-driven business, and RedPrairie's supply chain in the cloud has been our cornerstone. Because RedPrairie's innovative thinking has removed the barriers tied to inaccessible data, we've enhanced supply chain excellence with customers and prospects alike. Not only have we expanded our business because of RedPrairie, but our clients have benefited highly with better collaboration and accountability."

RedPrairie offers supply chain solutions that address the operations of any supply chain operation, from the smallest facility to the most complex shipping center, to the broadest supply network or distribution chain. During its annual user conference RedShift which took place earlier this year, RedPrairie announced its on-demand product strategy to its customers outlining its plans to support multi-tenancy for TMS and fully integrate its on-demand product portfolio. Phase one of the rollout of its product roadmap, which includes the support of multi-tenancy for TMS, will be completed by the end of the year.

"RedPrairie is the only company that can offer a mix of solution functionality, delivery model and price that can accommodate any business, no matter how big, small, simple, or complex their supply chain operation may be," said RedPrairie President of Global Operations, Doug Braun. "Whether you are looking for a low cost solution to manage inventory and shipments in a small warehouse, production facility or even a construction yard, to a uniquely customized combination of WMS and TMS to run multiple mega-DC's, the suite of on-demand software solutions complements RedPrairie's ability to address those needs."

RedPrairie has put commerce in motion for the world's leading companies for more than 35 years by optimizing inventory, improving employee productivity, and increasing speed to market. Best-of-breed supply chain, workforce, and all-channel retail solutions from RedPrairie help ensure visibility, collaboration, and velocity between manufacturers, distributors, retailers and consumers to guarantee the consistent flow of goods from raw materials to finished products in the hands of consumers.
