Dear Customers and Partners,
On September 6, 2016, Oracle announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire LogFire, a provider of cloud-based warehouse management applications. LogFire’s built-for-the-cloud solution provides an integrated warehouse, inventory and workforce management platform that easily scales with increased volume and complexity.
Supply chain organizations are under enormous pressure to capitalize on evolving business trends such as omni-channel fulfillment, integrated logistics and dynamic sourcing, while simultaneously increasing efficiency and reducing costs. To meet these challenges, Oracle Supply Chain Management (SCM) Cloud offers a broad suite of innovative applications that enables organizations to modernize their supply chain processes. The addition of LogFire will complement the logistics functionality of the Oracle SCM Cloud by adding cloud-based warehouse management capabilities.
The LogFire team brings significant knowledge and capabilities to Oracle that will extend the value Oracle SCM Cloud already brings to our customers and partners.
The Palerra team is expected to join Oracle, bringing significant knowledge and capabilities to Oracle.
