TECSYS, Visar Logistics Partner

Combine software with 3PL services for companies outsourcing distribution processes

Montreal  October 2, 2002  Visar Logistics is set to implement a Web-based supply chain management solution from TECSYS while also partnering with the software provider to jointly market their services.

Houston, Texas-based Visar is a full-service third-party logistics provider (3PL). The company is implementing TECSYS' EliteSeries suite of applications for supply chain management.

The EliteSeries suite includes modules for enterprise performance management, distribution management, warehouse management, transportation management and e-commerce.

In addition, TECSYS and Visar will join forces to co-promote their core competencies with business development and marketing initiatives.

The two companies believe the combination of the software and a 3PL provider will offer a compelling solution for businesses seeking to outsource their distribution processes.

"During stormy and sunny economic times alike, businesses will look to focus on their core competencies and outsource the rest," said Nam Vo, senior vice president of business development at TECSYS. "Visar&will lead the way with its logistics services by concentrating on customer service and supply management."

Added Vo, "We believe that having the right 3PL and software technology, Visar and TECSYS will deliver better visibility and get the right product to the right customer in the most efficient way."
