SSA Global, a provider of extended enterprise solutions and services, has completed its acquisition of substantially all of the assets of Arzoon Inc., a provider of integrated logistics and global trade management technology. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
“Today’s acquisition of Arzoon demonstrates our ongoing commitment to provide worldwide customers with increased value through extended solutions,” says Mike Greenough, president, chairman and CEO of SSA Global. “The combination of SSA Global and the supply chain execution functionality from Arzoon is a natural fit. We share several customers in the manufacturing sector, including companies in the high-technology, consumer packaged goods, logistics and transportation industries.”
Arzoon’s unified supply chain execution (SCE) infrastructure, which is used to increase supply chain velocity and performance, will augment SSA Global’s existing supply chain management (SCM) solution and strategy. Arzoon brings its n-tier global logistics execution solution, which includes global transportation management, international trade compliance, inventory visibility, exception management, and trading partner management, to the SSA SCM portfolio. SSA Global customers will gain greater visibility into core SCE processes while reducing transportation and logistics costs, integrating security and trade compliance, and improving procurement, fulfillment and customer service.
SSA Global will initially focus on integrating Arzoon into SSA Transportation Management, a current SSA SCM offering. By combining Arzoon’s functionality with SSA Transportation Management, as well as SSA Warehouse Management, SSA Global plans to offer an SCM solution designed to help companies move products globally with the lowest total landed cost, while also providing visibility into their supply chain
