RedPrairie has announced that they have appointed Avant-Garde Communications (AgCom) as the RedPrairie Value Added Reseller to deliver their supply chain execution and retail productivity software solutions in the Russian Federation.
Don Scott, President of Avant-Garde Communications, said Russia has moved forward in leaps and bounds economically in the last two or three years, particularly in terms of distribution networks and retail logistics. There is a massive expansion out to the regions from Moscow and this poses major challenges to company management and their supply chain IT systems. We see a major opportunity here for RedPrairie.
Martin Hiscox (pictured), President and Managing Director, International, RedPrairie, confirmed that Russia is a vibrant, growing region which RedPrairie is keen to enter as part of its international expansion. Said Hiscox, This partnership continues the RedPrairie tradition of working with local people who have local knowledge and languages, to give our customers a better service. He continued, The AgCom approach to resolving customer issues fits well with ours, and we expect this to be a key differentiator in the Russian market. AgCom have a proven record of successful system implementation and we are sure we can work well together. We already have some exciting projects in view.
Scott reflected We were bowled over by RedPrairies end-to-end (E2eTM) solution suite which we saw at their RedShift International User Conference last October in Brussels. This kind of revolution is exactly what Russian business needs right now, and RedPrairie will be part of the exciting developments going on here.
