SSA Global Technologies, Inc., a global provider of extended enterprise solutions and services, announced the acquisition of Provia Software, Inc., a provider of order-to-delivery supply chain execution (SCE) solutions.

The acquisition of Provia provides SSA Global a small-to-medium market SCE solution that affords a cost-effective approach for distribution-intensive companies. The acquisition brings SSA Global and its customers an integrated Web services offering that features warehouse management, order management, analytics, transportation management and RFID capabilities. Provia's solution complements SSA Global's existing supply chain management (SSA SCM) offerings, which target larger, high volume distribution fulfillment customers. By adding Provia, SSA Global can now offer demand-driven solutions for any size company's supply chain.

There are strong synergies between SSA Global and Provia given that many of SSA Global's large customer base serve these same industries including third-party logistics (3PL), consumer packaged goods, food and beverage, high tech and electronics, wholesale and retail.

SSA SCM, which includes SSA Advanced Planning and Scheduling, SSA Warehouse Management and SSA Transportation Management, is a comprehensive solution utilized by leading retailers, logistics and distribution companies, and manufacturing firms to fuse the demand chain with the supply chain. SSA SCM provides companies with the ability to forecast demand; take an order; give an accurate promise date; source and manufacture the right goods; position inventory properly; and pick, pack and ship efficiently while maintaining a minimal finished goods inventory.
