05 Mar Amber Road Acquires ecVision
Amber Road (NYSE: AMBR), a leading provider of global trade management (GTM) solutions, announced that it has acquired ecVision, a cloud-based provider of global sourcing and collaborative supply chain solutions for brand-focused companies.
ecVision helps many of the largest brand companies in the world to effectively manage their relationships with product suppliers, raw material vendors, product testing and social compliance audit firms, and global logistics companies. Driven by the need to get the right products to market faster and respond to ever shortening ‘seasonal’ cycles, retail brand companies must collaborate with their suppliers and tier-n material vendors to speed innovation and manage product compliance with fine-tuned control over costs.
“U.S. and European-based brand companies are under constant pressure to bring new products to market faster,” said Kevin O’Marah, Chief Content Officer at SCM World. “It’s all about accelerated merchandise innovation and rapid, profitable execution. More effective collaboration with Asian-based manufacturers is key to that equation. Where ecVision helps drive these benefits on the front end of the process, Amber Road picks it up at point of shipment to ensure compliant, cost-effective global delivery to the brand or retailer. It’s a very synergistic union.”
