RedPrairie Corporation, a leader in global supply chain technology solutions, has bought supply chain execution provider LIS. Operating under the RedPrairie name, the enlarged group projects 2004 revenues of US$130M and has more than 600 people from offices in the US, UK, mainland Europe and China.
