Infor Aligns With MercuryGate to Strengthen Transportation Management

Agreement Provides Infor SCE Customers With Increased Speed of Integration, Implementation and Time to Market

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 17, 2014) - Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 73,000 customers, today announced a reseller agreement with MercuryGate International to bolster transportation management within the existing supply chain portfolio. The agreement will extend the Infor Supply Chain Execution (SCE) application with the leading MercuryGate Transport Management System (TMS). The ability to deliver MercuryGate TMS with Infor SCE will provide a more robust Supply Chain Execution solution for operations of manufacturers, logistic providers and companies with transportation management needs.

MercuryGate TMS is a single platform transportation management solution that enables companies to manage their multi-modal, multi-leg transportation across geographies while providing control tower visibility and decision support and managing fully loaded transportation costs. This provides a direct competitive advantage for companies of all sizes from the smallest shipper to the largest multi-national corporations. MercuryGate's ezClick architecture and configurable dynamic workflow process enable the solution to quickly adapt to fit the requirements of any shipper or logistics service provider. The flexible, easy to use solution offers a rapid time to value and Return on Investment (ROI).

"By aligning with Infor, MercuryGate is now able to offer our clients and prospects the opportunity to integrate with the broad portfolio of Infor supply chain products while providing Infor clients the opportunity to integrate with a single platform TMS that will manage all of their global transportation requirements, truck, rail, ocean, air, barge and parcel," said Daniel Vertachnik, EVP, CCO, MercuryGate International. "The integrated Infor and MercuryGate solutions offer companies of all sizes the opportunity to supercharge their businesses and to gain a competitive edge in the market."

MercuryGate TMS enables Infor SCE and enterprise resource planning (ERP) customers to rapidly customize the solution and select the delivery option that is right for them. The sophisticated application architecture and modular approach provides a more extensive layer of integration to create an end-to-end supply chain solution. The delivery options include Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) delivered in a multi-tenant shared environment or in a single-tenant dedicated environment or as a traditional license model delivered in a secure hosting center or on-site at the client location. The cloud solution enables users to access the system from any browser anywhere in the world, to store and recover data in the cloud and to collaborate with all trading partners across the supply chain. The open architecture of MercuryGate TMS makes for a simple integration to Infor SCE and ERP applications and other Infor and third-party systems including accounting, warehouse management systems (WMS) and legacy platforms.

"The inclusion of MercuryGate TMS provides an added layer of innovation to our existing supply chain execution offering, this allows our customers to utilize a single transportation management solution that opens the door to new growth initiatives," said Nathalie Regniers, industry strategy director, Supply Chain Management, Infor. "Our customers are now able to control the costs associated with shipping regardless of the size and scale of their organization."
