RedPrairie Makes a Smart Turn into SaaS WMS
My attendance of RedPrairie Corporations’ RedShift 2010 user conference (for the first time ever) confirmed what I have long sensed about the company’s

smartturn  NMC’s ownership. It  acquired SmartTurn , a provider of on-demand inventory control and warehouse management systems to small and medium enterprises (SME’s), for an undisclosed sum. RedPrairie has meanwhile added SmartTurn’s multi-tenant SaaS WMS product to its E2e suite and renamed it RedPrairie On-Demand WMS . Over time, the product will be integrated with (or interfaced to) appropriate complementary RedPrairie’s offerings. SmartTurn CEO Jim Burleigh will continue to lead the On-Demand WMS

Are Manhattan Associates and RedPrairie's Paths Really Diverging?


My 2009 series on a few good supply chain management (SCM) players portrayed Manhattan Associates (NASDAQ: MANH) and RedPrairie Corporation as fierce competitors. Indeed, these two vendors continue to duke it out at almost every large-scale selection deal for a warehouse management system (WMS), distribution labor management system (LMS), or transportation management system

smartturn  as it did with SmartTurn (a SaaS WMS product that was acquired just prior to RedShift 2010), but these on-demand businesses are quite different. While SmartTurn is a true multi-tenant SaaS model serving smaller single-site companies, ShipComm uses RedPrairie’s flagship TMS solution to offer TMS on a hosted basis to Tier 1 and mid-market companies. Although ShipComm markets its  multi-tenant SaaS  capabilities, only some add-on modules such as ShipBid for carrier bidding and ShipMart for market Read More

RedPrairie and JDA Software Merger, Part Three: What Does it Mean for Manhattan Associates and Other SCM Players?


On November 1, 2012, RedPrairie Corporation and JDA Software announced their merger. Under the terms of the agreement, the entities affiliated with RedPrairie will effect a cash tender offer to acquire all outstanding shares of JDA common stock for $45 per share. My initial positive and negative thoughts on the merger were outlined in Part One of this blog series, while Part Two discussed how the

For high volume WMS deployments, you still need a pretty big internet pipe, since the response time has to be nearly immediate. For some time, the cloud will not be able to provide these response times, and Manhattan will have some time to figure out its go forward strategy. Last year, Read More

RedShift 2012: RedPrairie’s Three-year Transformational Journey


The recently held RedShift 2012 user conference was reportedly a huge success for RedPrairie, a vendor of supply chain management (SCM), workforce management (WFM), and multi-channel retail solutions. (I could not attend the multi-day event in person, but I was kindly debriefed by RedPrairie after the event). The business world has lately been transformed by a host of phenomena such as digital

smartturn  solution by RedPrairie (formerly SmartTurn , which was acquired in 2010) continues to sign new customers and its revenue is increasing. The small size of these deals doesn't add a lot to the bottom line though. RedPrairie now has two solid implementations of the Collaborative Flowcasting product, and they are good references. Kraft gave a compelling presentation on its implementation at RedShift 2012. Now that the vendor has some live customers and the word is getting out, interest is picking up. We will Read More
