San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 30, 2007
Varsity Logistics, Inc., the leader in integrated shipping/transportation management solutions for the IBM® System i platform, and SYSTIME, a global business solutions provider and the third largest JD Edwards practice worldwide, today announced a new co-marketing partnership focused on making high-performance, high-ROI supply chain management solutions more accessible to companies in North America that run Oracle JD Edwards and routinely ship physical goods. SYSTIME has chosen to work more closely with Varsity in order to ensure that its clients better understand and have access to a full range of shipping/transportation management solutions that can mitigate rising costs, improve business performance and secure customer satisfaction within a very short, multi-month timeframe.
Rising fuel and transportation costs and increasing shipping and supply chain complexity are driving more and more companies (large and small) to upgrade their capabilities to manage and optimize shipping processes and outcomes. The area of shipping and transportation management is increasingly being recognized as a missing link in the supply chain management process and the order-to-cash business cycle. Transportation carrier alternatives and trading partner compliance requirements have become so complex and dynamic that shipping and transportation can become a costly bottleneck and source of customer dissatisfaction, if not properly managed.
Varsity's ShipSoft™ modular solution suite for the System i allows U.S. based shippers to optimally plan, execute and control their shipment flow through a complete range of parcel and freight shipping alternatives. Varsity's solutions enable end-to-end shipping process and data integration not only within a shipper's enterprise, but also across external transportation carriers, customs and other regulatory agencies and the shipper's customers/trading partners themselves. Varsity's solutions are already implemented and proven at significant numbers of JD Edwards user companies in the manufacturing, wholesale and retail sectors.
"We are very honored to team-up with a premier service specialist like SYSTIME to bring additional value to the JD Edwards/IBM® System i base. SYSTIME shares our long-standing commitment to high value, integrated IT/business solutions and uncompromising customer support," reported Andrew Karpie, Senior Director of Business Development at Varsity Logistics. Shauna Gerth, SYSTIME's Manager of Strategic Alliances, added: "Varsity Logistics' unrivaled reputation for quality and excellent customer service, commitment to increasing net-new shareholder value and customer-driven product development makes them an ideal alliance for SYSTIME. This partnership supports SYSTIME's vision of being a complete global business solutions provider."
