Accellos and HighJump Software, global providers of supply chain management software and trading partner network technology, have agreed to merge. The combined entity will provide networked trading partner connectivity, as well as warehouse management, transportation management and route delivery systems. It brings together 11,000 customers in 23 countries with operations in North America, Asia and Europe.
The principals say this creates the opportunity for organizations of all sizes to work with a single technology provider offering an adaptable technology backbone for omni-channel supply chain operations. The merged company will operate under the name HighJump and continue to use the Accellos brand for midmarket supply chain execution technology. Accellos founder and CEO Michael Cornell was appointed CEO.
“Discussions with our customers have made it clear that omni-channel is a catalyst for rethinking their supply chain and its underlying technology,” said Cornell. “This combination brings extremely complementary technology to both Accellos and HighJump customers.
A joint announcement stated that the combined company is committed to all the Accellos and HighJump product lines going forward, and that current customers’ investments in existing solutions will continue to be protected.
