Aptean acquires ERP and SCM provider Apprise
Global enterprise software company Aptean has announced the acquisition of Apprise, which provides ERP and SCM solutions to importers and distributors of consumer goods.
The deal looks set to strengthen Aptean’s ERP and SCM solution suite, and is their second acquisition in the logistics sphere this year. In February 2017 the company acquired irms|360 - a division of Upp Technology which includes warehouse management and asset management solutions.
Aptean CEO Kim Eaton said “Apprise has built a comprehensive set of industry-focused enterprise software solutions and a reputation for great customer service and experience.
“We look forward to working with the Apprise team to build on their current success in the consumer goods industry and to help accelerate their growth.”
Apprise, which has been trading in the consumer goods market for over thirty years, hopes that Aptean’s global presence and scale will help them expand in markets where they have growth potential.
Apprise CEO Jeff Broadhurst said “We are excited to join Aptean and leverage their scale in markets where we see opportunities for growth.
“Apprise will benefit from Aptean’s global presence and best practices as we continue to bring new innovation to our customers.”
