Apptricity Supply Chain Management is a mobile solution suite that automates supply chain operations. The suite contains modules that cover Warehouse Management, Asset Management, Work Order Management, Inventory Management and Transportation Management.
The key for SCM software is to ensure that they cover the whole lifecycle from product development, marketing, production planning, manufacturing and distribution, both in terms of warehousing and transportation, finance, customer service, but not forgetting returns management and service management. Appricity Supply Chain Management Solution does all of this.
Up until 2014, the company has been very North America focused. This year has seen Appricity open an office in London as an entry point for Europe. This has also been reflected in the way the company has gone to market as it has a direct sales force supported by a consultancy group. Its partners are currently all technology based. The move into Europe has led to the setting up of an Appricity Global Channel Program. This program covers Solution Providers, Service providers, Systems Integrator and Distribution partners as well as Technology Partners.
