Blue Yonder Acquires Microservices Provider

07/27/2020

Blue Yonder has acquired Yantriks, a SaaS provider of commerce and fulfillment microservices.

This acquisition combines real-time transactional systems with supply chain planning, forecasting and fulfillment solutions to power modern commerce, enabling companies to integrate their supply chain assets.

Blue Yonder, formerly JDA Software, will marry its Luminate Commerce solutions with Yantriks’ technology to augment customers’ existing systems. These combined solutions are available to deploy today and can improve real-time inventory visibility, omnichannel fulfillment, and personalized customer experiences.

Girish Rishi, Blue Yonder CEO, noted that companies now require the ability to deliver products quickly and accurately, with costs optimized through plan-to-order-to-fulfillment alignment. “The combination of Yantriks and Blue Yonder brings together end-to-end systems that begin with the very start of the shoppers’ journey and allows the entire supply chain to be organized around their preferences and choices,” Rishi noted.

“Customers increasingly expect a unified experience that is no longer just about brand, product and price,” said Eugene Amigud, Yantriks founder. “The supply chain, its capabilities, and the ability to promise and deliver customer-facing fulfillment strategies in real-time, is the differentiator enabling B2B and B2C companies to adapt, evolve and succeed.

Wayfair saw “unprecedented demand” and “record numbers of new and repeat customers” in its second quarter of 2020, as shoppers turned to improving their homes during the pandemic and shopping online. Hear what CEO Niraj Shah has to say about e-commerce adoption going forward.

There’s no doubt this may be the strangest back to school season on record. As class supply lists hit parents’ inboxes, many are still debating if they will even send their children into the classroom this fall. However, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to threaten the normalcy of purchasing paper and pencils, there’s still time for retailers to ramp up their back to school promotions.

The back-to-school buying season is here, and both parents and retailers are preparing for an unprecedented, unpredictable event that won’t look anything like the sales of the past. To successfully connect with customers, retailers will have to dig deeper into a few key trends.
