MARLBOROUGH, Mass., March 12, 2002 - Kewill E Commerce (LSE: KWL), the leading provider of multi-carrier shipping management software, announced today that Intek Integration Technologies, Inc., a leading mid-tier WMS provider, will adopt Kewill’s Clippership and Kewill.Ship technology as a standard offering within the company’s Warehouse Librarian™ Warehouse Management System (WMS).
"The combination of Kewill and Intek solutions addresses the growing need to manage the complexity of shipping compliance and to shorten order-to-delivery cycle times in today’s supply chain,” says Bob Malley, CEO of Kewill Systems. “To maximize profitability and remain competitive, businesses today require a fully integrated solution which includes compliant transportation management.”
