SSA Global Technologies, Inc. (Chicago), a global provider of extended enterprise solutions and services, today announced the acquisition of Provia Software, Inc., a provider of order-to-delivery supply chain execution (SCE) solutions.
The acquisition of Provia provides SSA Global a small-to-medium market SCE solution that affords a cost-effective approach for distribution-intensive companies. The acquisition brings SSA Global and its customers an integrated web services offering that features warehouse management, order management, analytic, transportation management and RFID capabilities. Provia's solution complements SSA Global's existing supply chain management (SSA SCM) offerings, which target larger, high volume distribution fulfillment customers. By adding Provia, SSA Global can now offer demand driven solutions for any size company's supply chain.
"Through the Provia acquisition, SSA Global increases its current position in supply chain management by bringing new capabilities to companies in industries we already know and serve," said Mike Greenough, chairman, president and CEO of SSA Global. "SSA Global offers Provia customers and prospects an SCE solution supported by the strength and financial viability of a large software solutions partner."
