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.
