CargoWise’, a global leader in technology solutions for logistics service providers (LSPs), announced a new distribution partnership with ERP specialists RBC Group to target rapidly expanding markets in Eastern Europe and Russia. Formed in 2008, RBC Group has quickly grown in size and reputation, establishing itself as the leading supplier of business intelligence and enterprise resource planning software in the region, with offices in five countries across Eastern Europe and more than 250 mid-market and enterprise customers.
‘We were looking to do business with a software company capable of providing world-leading, sophisticated solutions and tangible results not only to our existing customers, but to the entire logistics industry in our region ’ one that could provide us with the opportunity to expand into new vertical markets,’ says RBC Group Managing Partner Anton Poretskov. ‘We saw that CargoWise’s ediEnterprise solution is becoming an indisputable first choice for the logistics industry globally, and believe it has the potential to become the industry standard for Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and other former Soviet Union countries as well.’
According to Poretskov, the ediEnterprise software from CargoWise provides an attractive solution as it offers a combination of industry-specific content, business interaction capabilities, and attractive, flexible licensing arrangements. ‘Our goal,’ he said, ‘is to provide local businesses with access to technologies that are used by the most advanced international companies, enabling Eastern European forwarders, NVOCC and WMS providers to expand and effectively compete in new markets.’
CargoWise VP Partner Management, Volodya Bilanovsky, is enthusiastic regarding opportunities in the Eastern European region and says RBC Group is an ideal partner because of the company’s depth of experience with enterprise-class software, and its existing customer base. ‘As a part of BRIC (the countries of Brazil, Russia, India and China), Russia is rapidly becoming a world-leading economic powerhouse. We are delighted to have a strong local partner with the skills and capacity to establish CargoWise software in a region with such strong growth potential,’ Bilanovsky says. ‘This new arrangement with RBC Group will make it possible for us to assist local companies to expand into new markets, and we’re looking forward to providing them with access to our world-class software.’
