SSA Global acquires Arzoon's assets



Last month, SSA Global acquired all of Arzoon Inc.'s assets. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

SSA Global plans to integrate Arzoon's transportation management software into SSA Transportation Management to offer a more comprehensive supply-chain management system.

"The combination of SSA Global and the supply chain execution functionality from Arzoon is a natural fit," said SSA Global Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Mike Greenough in a prepared statement. "We share several customers in the manufacturing sector, including companies in the high-technology, consumer packaged goods, logistics and transportation industries."

Arzoon marketed a LIFE software suite that included Arzoon® FastTrack Rail Manager and Arzoon® Rail Rate Manager designed to streamline the process of rail-shipment sourcing, execution, tracking and payment settlement. Canadian Pacific Railway, CSX Corp., Norfolk Southern Corp. and Union Pacific Corp. were Arzoon investors.

A SSA Global Technologies Inc. subsidiary, SSA Global provides extended enterprise resource planning software designed to manage corporate performance, customer and supplier relationships, product lifecycles and supply chains.
