Minnesota-based HighJump Software Inc has expanded its existing supply chain management suite.
The company has done this by acquiring TrueCommerce Inc, a Pennsylvania-based company that provides an end-to-end suite of trading partner connectivity solutions including Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) translation and data mapping software, transaction network and on-boarding services.
HighJump says the TrueCommerce solutions can enable trading partner connectivity for 3,000 customers, features predefined integration to many major ERP systems and can be deployed in either SaaS or on-premise models.
The TrueCommerce trading partner integration solution complements HighJump Software’s existing supply chain application suite, which spans from supplier to store shelf.
It also includes:
• warehouse management systems;
• transportation management systems;
• route accounting systems;
• manufacturing execution;
• mobile sales; and
• ERP data collection.
“Our view is that supply chain applications must allow users to connect with a broad ecosystem of trading partners to maximize value,” says Russell Fleischer, HighJump Software CEO.
“The TrueCommerce solution platform, and our previous move to cloud-based applications, will help translate this vision into reality for our customers.”
Trading partner collaboration is increasingly important, explains HighJump, as organizations strive to reduce costs and improve service levels.
By combining integration solutions with application functionality, organizations are able to ensure consistency in business processes and accuracy of information exchanged with trading partners.
“TrueCommerce has filled a unique need in the market for simple, robust and affordable EDI solutions for small and midsize businesses,” says Nick Manolis, TrueCommerce CEO.
