ShipComm and RedPrairie have been strategic alliance partners for more than a decade, and now formally join forces to leverage their track record of success in serving both the Fortune 1000 and mid-market. Focused on the needs of shippers of all types and sizes, while offering rapid implementation, ShipComm’s TMS and Collaborative Transportation programs currently manage more than 300 enterprise freight sites for large- and mid-cap clients.
“The union of ShipComm and RedPrairie will expand our presence and responsiveness to the needs of the TMS marketplace in our On-Demand offerings to bring total cloud computing solutions that are accessible to all sectors within our served markets”, says Mike Mayoras, RedPrairie CEO.
Adds Bob Shagawat, CEO and Founder of ShipComm, who will serve as a strategic advisor during the transition period, “For RedPrairie and ShipComm, formally joining forces under one roof is a natural evolution of our successful partnership since 2000. We will continue to provide cutting-edge programs of the highest quality and most advanced functionality to our current customers, as well as progressive shippers joining our growing family of clients.”
