enVista Sells Enspire Omnichannel Software and Global Freight Audit & Payment Services to Körber

The acquisition enables enVista to focus on the market for supply chain, enterprise business, and automation solutions and moves Kӧrber’s omnichannel and freight audit & payment strategy closer to becoming the global supply chain software champion.

Körber Acquires enVista’s Omnichannel Enspire Commerce™ Platform and Global Freight Audit and Payment Service

Körber has signed a definitive agreement to purchase enVista’s Enspire Commerce™ platform and its Freight Audit and Payment (FAP) service.

enVista’s capabilities expand Körber’s portfolio to enable businesses to deliver upon ever-increasing consumer expectations in today’s highly competitive omnichannel landscape.

Meeting today’s consumer expectations requires digitization and integrated processes from order capture through to final delivery.

With this acquisition, Kӧrber becomes a single, global provider of omnichannel commerce, fulfillment, and transportation software.

By combining Kӧrber’s unique depth of software with enVista, organizations have a simple, compelling means of aligning and digitizing commerce and supply chain operations end-to-end.

Chad Collins, CEO at Kӧrber Supply Chain Software

“Körber is the trusted fulfillment and distribution technology partner for thousands of organizations worldwide,” said Chad Collins, CEO of Software at Körber Business Area Supply Chain.

“Acquiring enVista’s commerce platform enables our customers to manage the life cycle of the order from multiple demand sources and network-wide inventory. The freight audit and payment service provides a single source of transportation visibility and tracking typically not available in ERP or TMS solutions. This, with the addition of enVista CEO Jim Barnes and 400 commerce and transportation experts, furthers our ambition to be a global supply chain software champion through an integrated solution suite.”

enVista’s Order Management System (OMS), part of the Enspire Commerce platform, enables order visibility across channels and actionable data. These capabilities are heightened when used in tandem with Kӧrber’s fulfillment solutions. As a result, customer demands are met in real-time.

Furthermore, the microservices-based, API-first, headless architecture enables rapid integration and scale – once again bolstered when integrated with Kӧrber’s cloud-based solutions. 

The full functionality of enVista’sEnspire Commerce platform goes beyond OMS. It spans order orchestration, enterprise inventory availability, store fulfillment, customer care, dropship, marketplaces, subscriptions, product information management (PIM), point of sale/mobile point of sale (POS/mPOS), mobile fulfillment, and shipment experience management.

enVista’s FAP service will complement the business’ OMS and WMS capabilities to provide unparalleled new levels of last-mile profitability, control, intelligence, and customer experience. By providing a single source of transportation visibility while simultaneously optimizing and governing transportation spending, enVista and Körber empower tomorrow’s supply chains to fully unlock the value of their transportation activities.

Jim Barnes, CEO at enVista

“Leading retailers, distributors, and brands realize commerce and supply chain solutions must integrate and digitize,” said Jim Barnes, CEO at enVista.

“Our next-generation omnichannel commerce and FAP solutions, combined with Körber’s order fulfillment capabilities, deliver the seamless omnichannel brand experiences consumers expect. Körber’s global sales, implementation and support capabilities will strengthen enVista offerings, providing new levels of value, competitive advantage, and market momentum. I look forward to bringing my 30 years of experience in supply chain and commerce to the team.”

enVista is one of “Seven Providers That Matter Most” in the Forrester 2021 OMS Wave Report. They are consistently named in the Gartner Market Guides for FAP Providers and DOM Solutions. Kӧrber’s WMS has been named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems for the 4th consecutive year. Körber’s global reach will increase with enVista’s significant presence in North America, the UK, India, and APAC.
