enVista, Indianapolis, Ind., launched Enspire Commerce, a new software solutions business created to provide what is said to be the market's first and only true cloud-based, multi-tenant architecture solution focused on omni-channel selling, optimization, fulfillment and integration for small to mid-market retailers, distributors and third-party logistics service providers (3PLs).

The Enspire Commerce Enterprise Commerce Management (ECM) platform enables companies to readily leverage and rapidly integrate any or all of Enspire Commerce's solutions, including retail engagement/point of sale, trading partner management, order management and e-commerce solutions.

"Many mid-market companies face the same omni-channel complexities as larger retailers,” says Jim Barnes chief executive officer. “We founded Enspire Commerce to address gaps in the marketplace for price-competitive solutions that solve the complexities of omni-channel inventory visibility, order routing and fulfillment execution between retailers and their stores, logistics partners and vendors. At the heart of our ECM platform is an integration framework that allows trading partners to connect and create trading partner communities. This is a very different, customer-centric approach to retail that drives revenue and profitability by capturing sales, fulfilling from multiple inventory sources and delivering a unified cross-channel brand experience to consumers. If you are a retailer with multiple sales channels, a distributor that sells to retail or a 3PL that services retail customers, Enspire Commerce can help manage your end-to-end supply chain.”

The Enspire Commerce leadership team is comprised of CEO Jim Barnes (president and CEO of enVista); Michael Ingardia, chief technology officer; Jason Futch, managing partner, retail engagement/POS; and Gene Weaver, managing partner, business development.
