After acquiring on-demand WMS provider SmartTurn and on-demand TMS provider Shippers Commonwealth, RedPrairie became the only provider to offer a complete supply chain solution in the cloud.
According to Brian Schoenbaechler, general manager of IntegraCore, a third-party logistics provider and RedPrairie customer, “Supply chain visibility is at the heart of our client-driven business, and RedPrairie’s supply chain in the cloud has been our cornerstone.”

During its annual user conference RedShift which took place earlier this year, RedPrairie announced its on-demand product strategy to its customers outlining its plans to support multi-tenancy for TMS and fully integrate its on-demand product portfolio. Phase one of the rollout of its product roadmap, which includes the support of multi-tenancy for TMS, will be completed by the end of the year.
