RedPrairie Extends WFM Offering with Vortex Connect Acquisition

RedPrairie announced the acquisition of Toronto-based Vortex Connect, a mobile workforce management solution provider for business-to-employee communications and operations. The combination of assets – RedPrairie Enterprise Workforce Management (EWFM) and the Vortex mobility platform – creates a single provider of mobile-enabled solutions that manage the workforce across operational disciplines including stores, warehouses and distribution centers.
The Vortex acquisition enhances RedPrairie's market leadership in workforce management by embedding RedPrairie EWFM with capabilities including mobile shift management and bidding, mobile communications and operations management and employee self-service. The features enable companies to streamline operational processes, maximize employee productivity, reduce costs and enhance efficiencies by communicating data in real-time through multi-channel touch points.
RedPrairie will also leverage the Vortex acquisition to establish a Mobility Center of Excellence in Toronto. The Center for Excellence will focus on utilizing mobility effectively throughout the extended supply chain as well as the application of mobility across RedPrairie's solution footprint. It will also place Vortex's mobility experts at the center of RedPrairie's research and development, product strategy and mobile solutions groups to promote innovation, thought leadership and mobility integration for existing and emerging solutions.
