Sterling Commerce has bought rival enterprise resource planning (ERP) software supplier Comergent Technologies in an £81.7m deal that will create a single system for Sterling to offer businesses.

Companies that use Sterling Commerce, such as Kimberly-Clark and Pfizer, have taken a best-of-breed approach to managing their supply chain software.

Sterling Commerce hopes that by integrating Comergent’s applications with its own ERP system it will be able to offer users a single platform capable of managing all their supply chain processes.

The software supplier’s CEO, Samuel Starr, said, “By integrating Comergent’s eBusiness Application Suite into our multi-channel order fulfilment software, we plan to offer a modular end-to-end solution for the challenges that customers historically have handled through a complex and costly mix of point solutions.”

By integrating the two systems, Sterling Commerce will provide users with an end-to-end order fulfilment system.
Sterling Commerce has also acquired Comergent’s customer list. These customers include DirecTV and Pearson Education.
