Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) January 10, 2013
Blue Ridge and LogFire announced their strategic partnership to form a demand-driven, multi-tenant, end-to-end supply chain solution in the Cloud. These leading managed services and SaaS solution providers will integrate their respective supply chain planning and execution solutions to generate greater effectiveness by connecting to and capitalizing on retailer’s demand-shaping initiatives.
Linking the LogFire supply chain execution solutions with the Blue Ridge planning, forecasting and replenishment solutions will enable retailers to close the loop between demand-shaping activities and product availability. Retail industry analysts assert that the resulting improvement in product availability will assure that retailers capitalize on demand drivers to increase customer loyalty and revenue.
Blue Ridge and LogFire agree the benefits of a unified supply chain solution in the Cloud are not limited to efficiency improvements, but also extend value to the retailer in the form of rapid innovation and constant advancement. Greg White, CEO of Blue Ridge commented, “Our companies share a vision of a completely connected supply chain that meets the needs of today’s omni-channel retailer.” White continued, “Our multi-tenant solutions allow us to innovate at a rate never before seen in supply chain solutions; providing enhancements throughout the year instead of waiting for an annual release, or a large, risky, costly upgrade effort.”
“The Cloud has enabled us to provide a cohesive supply chain solution, driven by consumer demand,” stated Diego Pantoja-Navajas, Founder & CEO of LogFire. “By seamlessly connecting previously disjointed phases of the supply chain, we ensure that a company’s supply chain management is tightly integrated and visible, increasing efficiencies and creating profit-driving opportunities. Our solutions are not just hosted versions of traditional licensed products, we offer true multi-tenant cloud platform solutions,” added Pantoja-Navajas.
LogFire and Blue Ridge, along with many of their key customers, will be participating next week in National Retail Federation’s (NRF) 102nd Annual Convention & EXPO in New York City, January 12-16. Executives from both companies will be available in Booth C226 on Level 1 of the Javits Convention Center. As a special offer to NRF show attendees, both companies will be giving away two free 6-month Software as a Service (SaaS) subscriptions to the winning companies that sign-up at the show to migrate away from their traditional systems.
The companies will also offer an onsite book signing at NRF on Monday, January 14th at 10AM, 1PM, and 3PM. Author Gary Patterson will be in attendance signing free copies of his new book, Million Dollar Blind Spots. Attendees can also share ideas with Anders Armandt, Procurement leader from this year’s Retail TouchPoint’s Customer Engagement Award winner, Procurator. Anders will be available at the booth Monday January 14th at 11AM, 2PM and 4PM, and Tuesday January 15th at 10AM to discuss his company’s winning supply chain strategies.
