Accellos, HighJump Software Merge

Supply chain management software providers Accellos, Colorado Springs, Colo., and HighJump Software, Minneapolis, agreed to merge, creating a market leader with 11,000 customers in 23 countries with operations in North America, Asia and Europe. The combination of the two companies creates a product portfolio that is uniquely positioned to meet the advancing needs of retailers, distributors, manufacturers and logistics service providers to manage complex order fulfillment cycles and collaborate with supply chain partners.

The combination of Accellos and HighJump brings together a unique set of technologies, including networked trading partner connectivity, warehouse management, transportation management and route delivery.

The merged company will operate under the name HighJump and continue to use the Accellos brand for mid-market supply chain execution technology. As a result, Accellos founder and CEO Michael Cornell was appointed chief executive officer.

“Discussions with our customers have made it clear that omni-channel is a catalyst for re-thinking their supply chain and its underlying technology,” says Michael Cornell, chief executive officer of Accellos. “This combination brings extremely complementary technology to both Accellos and HighJump customers. Our collective supply chain execution product portfolio is one of the broadest and most adaptable in the industry, and covers the unique needs of large enterprises, 3PLs and SMBs. HighJump’s trading partner network is a model for the power of a next generation ‘connect-once, access-all’ network that can provide significant value to Accellos customers. Additionally, HighJump and Accellos share a common culture rooted in a relentless focus on developing innovative products and strong customer support. This focus allowed us to add over 1,100 new customers in 2013 alone. We think this combination will further allow us to continue to meet and exceed the expectations of our customers and partners in the future.”
