Kewill Acquires Assests of Pointandship Software

Adds cloud-based shipping and expense management to solution set

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. SEMS gives 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.
