Workshop partner at the Supply Chain Conference 2020, Descartes, has bought Peoplevox for £18.9m.
Peoplevox provides cloud-based e-commerce warehouse management solutions, (eWMS), and serves direct-to-consumer e-commerce brands.
The eWMS allows customers to connect to webshop front ends, and translates order information into mobile-driven pick and pack processes within the warehouse.
It then feeds parcel delivery systems for shipment.
The company’s customers include direct-to-consumer brands, e-commerce retailers and traditional retailers with physical stores looking to enhance their online presence to meet the need for omni-channel deliveries to consumers.
Jonathan Bellwood, founder of Peoplevox and VP of industry solutions at Descartes said: “successful e-commerce supply chains require flexible fulfilment systems that can scale up and down during peak periods, while maintaining connections with a complex ecosystem of sales and delivery channels.
“By combining with Descartes, we see an opportunity to extend our market reach and integrate with complementary technologies to manage the full lifecycle of domestic and cross-border e-commerce shipments.”
