Blue Ridge and LogFire Align Forces at NRF’s 102nd Annual Convention & Expo to Showcase Supply Chain Planning and Execution Solutions in the Cloud
Leading cloud-based supply chain solutions providers partner to leverage unified demand-driven supply chain solutions for forecasting, planning and replenishment as well as multi-channel extended warehouse management, including in-store inventory management.
January 10, 2013, Atlanta, Georgia – Blue Ridge and LogFire announce their strategic partnership to form demand-driven, multi-tenant, end-to-end omni-channel supply chain solutions in the Cloud. These leading managed services and SaaS solution providers are integrating their respective cloud-based supply chain planning and execution solutions to generate greater effectiveness by connecting to and capitalizing on demand-shaping initiatives across ones entire network.
Market demand and adoption of cloud-based supply chain management continues to rise as companies of all sizes look to improve their overall inventory and supply chain efficiencies. Linking LogFire’s extended warehouse management capabilities for all omni-channel distribution, including in-store inventory management in real time, with Blue Ridge’s multi echelon demand planning, forecasting, and replenishment will enable retailers to close the loop between demand-shaping activities and supply chain planning and execution. The resulting improvement in cost savings and product availability will assure that organizations can both increase profits and customer loyalty at the same time.
“The benefits of a unified cloud-based omni-channel supply chain solution are not limited to efficiency improvements. The benefits also extend to rapid innovation and IT cost reductions”, commented Greg White, CEO of Blue Ridge. “Our multi-tenant solutions allow us to innovate at a rate never before seen in supply chain solutions; providing enhancements throughout the year instead of waiting for an annual release or a large, risky, costly upgrade effort.”
“The Cloud has enabled us to provide a cohesive supply chain solution, driven by consumer demand. Businesses have been looking for both ways to improve their operations and further reduce IT costs,” stated Diego Pantoja-Navajas, Founder & CEO of LogFire. “By leveraging the cloud as our common platform companies can gain granular precision and real time planning capabilities that increases efficiencies and create profit-driving opportunities. Our solutions are not just hosted versions of traditional licensed products, they are true multi-tenant cloud-based and cloud-developed solutions,” added Diego Pantoja-Navajas.
LogFire and Blue Ridge, along with many of their key customers, will be participating next week in National Retail Federation’s (NRF) 102nd Annual Convention & EXPO in New York City, January 12-16. Executives from both companies will be available in Booth C226 on Level 1 of the Javits Convention Center.
