IBS Partners with Fast-Growing MercuryGate for Transportation Management Solutions

IBS Customers Gain New Ways to Tap Best Carriers, Rates and Routes to Improve Business Visibility, Productivity and Reduce Freight Costs

SOLNA, Sweden, March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- International Business Systems (IBS), a global leading integrated ERP and supply chain solution provider, today announced a partnership with MercuryGate International, one of the fastest growing Transportation Management System (TMS) companies in the industry, to bolster its TMS capabilities in IBS Dynaman (Warehouse Management) and IBS Enterprise (Enterprise Resource Planning) software.

IBS.

IBS is the trusted industry leader of ERP and WMS distribution software, preferred for consistently improving operational efficiencies and business performance for mid-market companies challenged by the complexities of managing distribution.

MercuryGate delivers cloud-based, collaborative, global transportation management solutions for shippers, carriers, brokers, freight forwarders and third party logistics providers.  These solutions enable them to plan, optimize, execute and settle global transportation movements while providing complete end-to-end control tower visibility and decision support.  Gartner positioned MercuryGate in the Challengers Quadrant of its Magic Quadrant for Transportation Management Systems, dated 13 February 2014 (G00258086, Analyst(s): C. Dwight Klappich, et al.)

MercuryGate TMS solutions will be integrated into the IBS Business Suite, serving customers in key verticals like pharmaceuticals, food & beverage, automotive aftermarkets, 3PL and wholesale distribution.  They will extend the supply chain, enabling IBS customers to optimize their transportation networks, improve carrier selections, ensure accurate pricing, and provide end-to-end shipment visibility and partner collaboration. 

"Our partnership with MercuryGate expands our TMS footprint and gives our customers additional ways to realize cost reductions and greater ROI on their technology investments," said Tim Conroy, General Manager of the Americas, IBS.  "MercuryGate is a highly rated company and one that is capitalizing on the growing need for TMS solutions.  IBS customers will gain better controls over their transportation operations as a result."

TMS is growing in adoption and continues to offer companies opportunities for lower freight spend and for meeting the new omni-channel landscape head-on, according to an ARC Advisory Services study entitled, "2012-2017 TMS Global Market Research Study," published last year.  Companies can achieve a savings of about eight percent with TMS through greater visibility and optimization, the market research firm reported. 

"Transportation is under increasing scrutiny by companies looking to reduce costs, and MercuryGate continues to drive industry adoption of TMS," said Dan Vertachnik, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer at MercuryGate.  "Our partnership with IBS will help third-party logistics providers, retailers, manufacturers and distribution companies streamline business processes, reduce transportation costs, better serve their customers and reduce supply chain risk."

IBS solutions are designed to provide benefits such as lower IT cost through fixed monthly fees, reduced business risk, faster time to value and greater flexibility combined with the advanced functionality of the industry-leading IBS Business Suite solution.

Today's partnership was announced at IBS Connect, IBS Americas' Customer Conference 2014 in Scottsdale, Ariz., a gathering of thought leaders to discuss business and technology trends, and the future of the supply chain.
