Accellos and HighJump Software, each leading global providers of supply chain management software and trading partner network technology, have announced they have agreed to merge.

The merger creates a market leader with 11,000 customers in 23 countries with operations in North America, Asia and Europe. The combination of Accellos and HighJump brings together a unique set of technologies, including networked trading partner connectivity, warehouse management, transportation management, and route delivery. The merger aims to provide customers with a single technology provider for omni-channel supply chain operations and organizations of all sizes.

The merged company will operate under the name HighJump and continue to use the Accellos brand for midmarket supply chain execution technology. Accellos founder and CEO Michael Cornell has been appointed CEO.

“Discussions with our customers have made it clear that omni-channel is a catalyst for rethinking their supply chain and its underlying technology,” said Cornell. “This combination brings extremely complementary technology to both Accellos and HighJump customers. Our collective supply chain execution product portfolio is one of the broadest and most adaptable in the industry, and covers the unique needs of large enterprises, 3PLs, and SMBs. HighJump’s trading partner network is a model for the power of a next generation ‘connect-once, access-all’ network that can provide significant value to Accellos customers.”

A press release stated the combined company is strongly committed to all Accellos and HighJump product lines going forward, and current customers’ investments in existing solutions will continue to be protected.
