Chelmsford, MA—Dec. 27, 2011—Kewill, Inc. has acquired the Shipping Expense Management System (SEMS) from Pointandship Software, Inc. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. With this asset acquisition, Kewill adds cloud-based software for both parcel shipping and expense management to its already market-leading portfolio of shipping (parcel, LTL, TL) solutions.
With the SaaS-based SEMS solution Kewill provides multi-carrier desktop shipping to large and mid-sized companies. These organizations typically have significant, but distributed package shipping requirements but lack an in-house infrastructure to manage the shipping process. The result is an often considerable and poorly understood expense.
SEMS will join Kewill’s portfolio of shipping products that include Kewill Flagship, a multi-carrier, multi-facility, high volume solution, and Kewill Clippership, a multi-carrier solution for the SMB segment. SEMS enables Kewill to offer a cloud-based desktop shipping capability for this important market.
SEMS was designed and built on a foundation of deep domain expertise and shipping experience. SEMSgives businesses of all sizes unrivaled control over their outbound shipping, inbound tracking, billing and reporting capabilities. This end-to-end shipping solution offers express, ground, freight and courier services through all major carriers, and unifies every aspect of the users’ shipping needs into a single, cloud-based application. The result is reduced shipping expenses and improved operational efficiency.
