Antony Savvas

Sterling Commerce has completed the acquisition of Comergent Technologies, a developer of e-business software, for about $155m (£80m).

With the addition of Comergent, Sterling Commerce now delivers an end-to-end order management offering that will help companies increase revenue and reduce costs and order fulfilment lead times, said Sterling.

AMR Research analyst Bill Swanton said, “Sterling has an opportunity to provide a platform that combines communications and collaborative functionality for the three major faces of e-business: customer-facing, supplier-facing, and logistics-facing.”

Comergent offers an e-business platform and application suite that simplifies and improves selling and distributed order management processes for complex products. 

These applications complement the existing Sterling Commerce Supply Chain Application Suite.
