VistaLogix Global Teams with IBM

Will work with broad range of industries to embrace Smarter Commerce

Blue Bell, Pa.—Sept. 19, 2011--VistaLogix Global LLC announced it has been named an IBM global reseller of IBM Sterling Transportation Management System.  Together with its sibling in the chemical industry, Chemlogix LLC, VistaLogix brings a deep bench of logistics resources and expertise to help clients in multiple industries maximize the potential of IBM TMS and their carrier networks.

IBM TMS is part of IBM’s Smarter Commerce initiative that helps companies transform their business processes to more quickly respond to shifting customer demands in today's digitally transformed marketplace.  IBM TMS is an on-demand (SaaS) transportation solution enabling shippers to transform their supply chain networks by optimizing and automating inbound and outbound transportation processes. TMS provides Web-based access to a collaborative network of carriers, shippers and customers along with a comprehensive toolset for planning and executing the entire range of transportation activities.

“In this new era of the empowered consumer, companies need to conduct smarter commerce by adapting sourcing and procurement of goods and services based on customer demand by optimizing supplier interactions across extended value chains,” said John Mesberg, vice president, B2B & Commerce Solutions, IBM Software Group.  “Expanding our relationship with VistaLogix, a long-standing and strategic reseller of IBM TMS, will provide our clients with a wealth of knowledge and expertise to embrace new transportation models and respond to ever-changing market demands.”

“A TMS is only as good as the integration of the solution into a shipper’s logistics processes and out into the shipper’s network of carriers,” notes VistaLogix Technologies Vice President, Mike Skinner.  “The flexibility, ease-of-use and depth of functionality we experience in the IBM TMS helps to enable our project managers to quickly integrate the solution across our clients’ entire shipping organization in order to deliver tangible, measurable results.”   

Skinner adds, “With roots in the challenges and complexities of chemical logistics, and through our many successes implementing TMS with consumer goods manufacturers, VistaLogix is ideally positioned as an IBM partner to help clients take their TMS implementations to the next level.  Combining IBM’s significant investment in the technology with our investments in selling, deployment and support resources will create opportunities for rapid growth and expansion of this industry leading solution.” 

VistaLogix Global will be supporting IBM’s Smarter Commerce Global Summit 2011 as a Premier Sponsor in San Diego, Sept. 19 – 21.  The Smarter Commerce Global Summit 2011 brings together a powerful combination of best practices, new technology and services, marketing and supply chain experts and industry perspectives into one event.
