Kewill, Inc. buys the Shipping Expense Management System from Pointandship
December 21, 2011 - LM Editorial
Kewill, Inc. announced acquisition of the Shipping Expense Management System (SEM) from Pointandship Software, Inc.
While terms of the transaction were not disclosed, company spokesmen noted that this deal will add cloud-based software for both parcel shipping and expense management to its portfolio of shipping (parcel, LTL, TL) solutions.
“With this SaaS solution we are able to support the largest enterprises as well as the small and mid-size business markets (SMB) with both premise - as well as cloud-based shipping solutions,” said Michael Dolan, Chief Operating Officer for Kewill Inc. “This enables us to not only offer scalable choices for the market but also supports our rapidly expanding VAR, reseller, and partner channels.”
Other details disclosed to LM included:
*With the SaaS-based SEMS solution Kewill can provide multi-carrier desktop shipping to large and mid-sized companies. These organizations typically have significant, but distributed package shipping requirements but lack an in-house infrastructure to manage the shipping process. The result is an often considerable and poorly understood expense.
*SEMS will join Kewill’s portfolio of shipping products that include Kewill Flagship, a multi-carrier, multi-facility, high volume solution, and Kewill Clippership, a multi-carrier solution for the SMB segment. SEMS enables Kewill to offer a cloud-based desktop shipping capability for this important market.
*As with other Kewill products, SEMS was designed and built on a foundation of domain expertise and shipping experience.
Kewill said that SEMS gives businesses of all sizes control over their outbound shipping, inbound tracking, billing and reporting capabilities. This end-to-end shipping solution offers express, ground, freight and courier services through all major carriers, and unifies every aspect of the users’ shipping needs into a single, cloud-based application.
Over 7000 companies use Kewill solutions including FedEx, Ford, Mazda, Nestlé, Nike, Palm, Procter & Gamble, Smith & Nephew, UPS, Parker Hannifin, and Overstock.com (O.co)
As reported here last week, Kewill recently signed alliance agreement with INTTRA – a multi-carrier e-commerce platform for the ocean shipping industry.
