Elastic Path and Jagged Peak Partner to Streamline Ecommerce Order Process

Technology partnership helps brands save time and money on order management

Vancouver (October 28, 2014) – Elastic Path Software, an ecommerce company helping the world’s biggest brands generate more revenue, announced a strategic partnership with Jagged Peak that will help brands save time and money by streamlining traditionally complex order and fulfillment processes. Jagged Peak’s Order Management System (OMS) software is now part of Elastic Path’s Extended Commerce Solution, making it easier to capture, manage and fulfill orders in today's omnichannel retail environments.

Understanding Omnichannel
According to MIT’s report, “Beyond the Checkout Cart,” 80 percent of shoppers check prices online. One-third of them access the information on their mobile devices while they are inside the physical retail locations. In fact, the web influenced $1.1 trillion in store sales. The retail experience has moved from only online or only in-store to multiple integrated channels driven by demanding consumers that want everything at their fingertips. The MIT report suggests, the “omnichannel consumer is the central force shaping the future of e-commerce and brick-and-mortar stores alike.”

Creating Perfect Orders and Optimal Fulfillment
Jagged Peak’s software is a distributed OMS that aggregates and manages the lifecycle of any order type from any source. The software automatically creates “perfect orders,” which means simultaneously assessing inventory availability, customer proximity and delivery time to provide optimal fulfillment and meet the customer promise date. This allows brands to reduce shipping costs and enhance overall customer satisfaction through improved order delivery performance.

“A complete commerce suite requires cross-channel order and warehouse management capabilities to enable new and personalized fulfillment models in order to meet the expectations of today’s omnichannel consumer,” said Peter Lukomskyj, Vice President Products for Elastic Path. “This partnership allows us to quickly and easily arm our customers with leading OMS software, while extending the capabilities and benefits of our enterprise ecommerce solutions.”

Shop, Return and Fulfill Anywhere
“Consumers expect to be able to shop anywhere or return anywhere, and to meet that demand companies must be able to fulfill anywhere,” said Vincent Fabrizzi, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer for Jagged Peak. “Elastic Path’s commerce platform was built from the ground up to seamlessly connect enterprise business systems with best-of-breed software like ours. Our OMS provides functionally rich and highly scalable technology that will help Elastic Path’s customers optimize order management. This partnership is a great opportunity for us to extend our reach and visibility into the world’s biggest brands.”

Elastic Path offers a complete suite of enterprise-class commerce solutions encompassing all customers’ needs. In addition to Jagged Peak, Elastic Path has signed multiple partnerships since September, including Agility Multichannel for product information management (PIM) and MRM//McCANN for managed hosting services.
