Canon Europe Deploys Visibility & Event Management for European Operations

Descartes service to enable global manufacturer to validate business value before committing to pan-European deployment

Waterloo, Ontario — March 2, 2006 — Canon Europe NV, based in The Netherlands, said this week that it has completed its pilot and signed a longer-term subscription to deploy The Descartes Systems Group Inc.'s Visibility & Event Management solution for its Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) operations.

Canon Europe is using Descartes Visibility & Event Management, an on-demand, Web-based solution that works across enterprises, geographies and transportation modes to track and trace shipments to its customers in the EMEA region.

Descartes provides a framework that lets Canon Europe monitor, measure, query and report on order and delivery information at the line-item level. Descartes' Visibility & Event Management solution leverages the Descartes Global Logistics Network, one of the world's largest multimodal networks of transportation and logistics services providers and their customers.

"We are excited that our visibility solution can address an important delivery management requirement for Canon Europe," said Arthur Mesher, CEO of Descartes. "This is a great example of how Descartes' services-based business model allows companies such as Canon Europe to pilot and see the business value of our solutions before having to make significant financial commitments to use our technology."
