INDIANAPOLIS (August 1, 2018) — enVista, a global consulting and software solutions firm, announces today it has been selected by Emergent Cold, to support its major growth through an enterprise warehouse management system and labor management system evaluation and selection.
Formed in 2017, Emergent Cold (Emergent) is the ninth largest temperature-controlled service provider and currently on pace to reach number five within the year. Its recent growth has called for aggressive plans to address both the developed and emerging markets and finding the right systems selection and implementation partner was a crucial component to that plan.
Emergent is building a global temperature-controlled distribution network and a global enterprise IT suite focused on simplifying the process of accessing and managing markets around the world for its customers. enVista will partner with Emergent to design the best in class operational processes and systems to support Emergent's diverse customer requirements across a global footprint and supporting them with best in class applications. The first phase of the selection and implementation process will take place in the Asia-Pacific region, where Emergent has operations across Australia, New Zealand, and Vietnam.
The "Emergent Way" IT suite will include a customer pOréal that will provide customers with self-service order management, inventory visibility, and standardized KPI reporting to simplify the management of their temperature-controlled supply chain in developed and emerging markets globally.
"enVista has dedicated practice areas capable of designing and implementing best in class IT suites, so partnering with them enables Emergent to scale up and support our explosive growth with IT resources experienced in evaluating, selecting, and implementing solutions globally," said West Hutchison, SVP of Global Operations for Emergent Cold.
