DiCentral Inc., a leading innovator in supply chain management solutions and B2B integration, today announced that the company has acquired ALLiGACOM, a leading supply chain management (SCM) solution provider with a cloud-based EDI integration environment for ERP platforms and business applications. ALLiGACOM’s solution will be brought to the market as a strong value-add to DiCentral’s comprehensive supply chain integration suite.

“ALLiGACOM has been a strong player in the EDI market for a long time and serves a number of clients that are going to be a great fit to DiCentral’s existing customer base,” says DiCentral CEO Thuy Mai. “Their products are a perfect addition to our existing solution suite and we are excited to formally bring ALLiGACOM’s proven software into our supply chain integration suite to extend the benefits we offer leading organizations managing complex supply and demand chains.”

As it was in the ‘90s when there was a substantial upswing in large companie implementing ERPs, the next 15 years will be all about supply chain optimization. Small and mid-size companies will be evaluating and implementing SCM solutions as their number-one initiative. The consolidation of DiCentral’s offerings with the solutions brought to the table by ALLiGACOM provides the best possible option for these businesses to manage their supply chains and exceed their corporate goals.

“It’s no longer just about EDI,” says Jacques Dulac, president of ALLiGACOM. “With the acquisition, DiCentral not only strengthens its market position as the leader in supply chain integration, but our customers and the market as a whole will benefit from the increase in options and an overall stronger supply chain management solution suite. It is a very exciting time for the supply chain industry.”

Since 2000, DiCentral has been an industry leader in supply chain integration management software and services. With over 6000 valued customers processing millions of transactions annually, DiCentral has consistently delivered quality products and services across the retail, healthcare, pharmaceutical, automotive, chemical, logistics, warehousing, food, consumer goods industries, and more. In short, DiCentral’s offerings simplify the way their customers do business through supply chain integration.

Thuy Mai will continue as CEO of the corporate parent, DiCentral, while Jacques Dulac will continue to lead ALLiGACOM’s Canadian division as its president; the operations and the Canadian team will stay in force. With the acquisition, the global presence of DiCentral and its offerings are now much more substantial - making it easier to further penetrate markets in Europe, Asia, and Latin America.
