Körber Buys enVista's Omnichannel Enspire
July 21, 2022
has signed a definitive agreement to purchase enVista's Enspire Commerce
platform and its Freight Audit and Payment (FAP) service. enVista's capabilities
expand Körber's portfolio to enable businesses to deliver upon ever-increasing
consumer expectations in today's highly competitive omnichannel landscape.
Meeting today's consumer expectations requires digitization and integrated
processes from order capture through to final delivery. With this acquisition,
Kӧrber becomes a single, global provider of omnichannel commerce, fulfillment
and transportation software. By combining Kӧrber's unique depth of software with
enVista, organizations have a simple, compelling means of aligning and
digitizing commerce and supply chain operations end-to-end.
"Körber is the trusted fulfillment and distribution technology partner for
thousands of organizations worldwide," said Chad Collins CEO Software, Körber
Business Area Supply Chain. "Acquiring enVista's commerce platform enables our
customers to manage the life cycle of the order from multiple demand sources and
network-wide inventory. The freight audit and payment service provides a single
source of transportation visibility and tracking typically not available in ERP
or TMS solutions. This, with the addition of enVista CEO Jim Barnes and 400
commerce and transportation experts, furthers our ambition to be a global supply
chain software champion through an integrated solution suite."
enVista's Order Management System (OMS), part of the Enspire Commerce platform,
enables order visibility across channels and actionable data. These capabilities
are heightened when used in tandem with Kӧrber's fulfillment solutions. As a
result, customer demands are met in real time. Furthermore, the microservices-based,
API-first, headless architecture enables rapid integration and scale – once
again bolstered when integrated with Kӧrber's cloud-based solutions.
The full functionality of enVista's Enspire Commerce platform goes beyond OMS.
It spans order orchestration, enterprise inventory availability, store
fulfillment, customer care, dropship, marketplaces, subscriptions, product
information management (PIM), point of sale/mobile point of sale (POS/mPOS),
mobile fulfillment and shipment experience management.
FAP service will complement the business' OMS and WMS capabilities to provide
unparalleled new levels of last-mile profitability, control, intelligence and
customer experience. By providing a single source of transportation visibility
while simultaneously optimizing and governing transportation spend, enVista and
Körber empower tomorrow's supply chains to fully unlock the value of their
"Leading retailers, distributors and brands realize commerce and supply chain
solutions must integrate and digitize," said Jim Barnes, CEO at enVista. "Our
next-generation omnichannel commerce and FAP solutions, combined with Körber's
order fulfillment capabilities, deliver the seamless omnichannel brand
experiences consumers expect. Körber's global sales, implementation and support
capabilities will strengthen enVista offerings, providing new levels of value,
competitive advantage and market momentum. I look forward to bringing my 30
years of experience in supply chain and commerce to the team."
