HighJump Software, a global provider of supply chain management software, has announced it has acquired Atlas Products International, a United Kingdom-based provider of Software as a Service (SaaS)-based business-to-business (B2B) EDI integration, secure data transfer, and e-invoicing solutions.
Atlas is a market leader in EDI and B2B integration with over 2,200 customers in the UK and Ireland. At the center of Atlas’ product line is Atlas Exchange, a secure document exchange providing a “connect-once, access-all” network, securely linking retailers, manufacturers, suppliers and logistics service providers. Atlas B2B integration tools provide transformation and translation of critical business documents on-premise or in the cloud. Atlas also provides a SaaS-based Supplier Portal that synchronizes the trading network’s product catalogues and streamlines the electronic invoice exchange and settlement between members of the network.
“Atlas offers a unique set of solutions that allow companies to more efficiently transact business electronically and compete more effectively in a connected marketplace,” said Michael Cornell, CEO of HighJump Software. “This acquisition extends our global trading partner network, both functionally and geographically, and complements our existing HighJump B2Bi business which leads the market in Denmark and Nordic region of Europe and our TrueCommerce trading partner integration network in North America.”
“This alignment with HighJump provides Atlas tremendous opportunity with additional resources to enhance and market our solutions,” said Allan W. Gray, founder and CEO of Atlas. “Our solutions are complementary with the HighJump Software suite and our customers will find value in the technology platform and additional product offerings provided by HighJump.”
