TAGG Logistics and DM Fulfillment create a competitive advantage by utilizing the SPS Commerce retail community
MINNEAPOLIS, June 24, 2014 – SPS Commerce, Inc. (Nasdaq: SPSC), a leader in retail cloud services, today announced that its Universal Network is enabling third-party logistics providers (3PLs) to stay ahead of the increasingly complex fulfillment needs of omnichannel retail. Logistics companies including DM Fulfillment and TAGG Logistics have chosen to integrate to the SPS Universal Network using Retail Standard XML (RSX) as a critical capability in their omnichannel fulfillment businesses. With a single connection to SPS Commerce, the retail industry’s largest trading partner network, these logistics firms efficiently support their customers’ trading partner omnichannel fulfillment requirements, including the rapidly expanding direct-to-consumer delivery.
“Suppliers and retailers are looking to their 3PL partners to meet the ever-changing expectations of today’s consumer for rapid delivery of a rapidly expanding assortment of products,” said Peter Zaballos, vice president of marketing and product at SPS Commerce. “By connecting once to the SPS Universal Network, 3PLs can support their omnichannel customers by seamlessly fulfilling orders originating from stores, mobile apps, e-commerce sites and other channels. 3PLs taking advantage of these agile capabilities are leading the omnichannel era.”
Helping Customers Sell Across Multiple Channels – TAGG Logistics
In 2013, TAGG Logistics integrated their business to the SPS Commerce Universal Network, enabling instant access with the largest network of retail trading partners. The SPS Commerce solution integrates with TAGG’s internal systems, which include a warehouse management system (WMS) and transportation management system (TMS), delivering automated scalability to support TAGG’s growing customer base.
“TAGG’s focus is to help our clients grow across multiple sales channels, from e-commerce to big-box retailers. The SPS Universal Network provides a critical capability we depend on enabling our clients to sell more products across multiple shopping channels, especially when each week seems to bring new channels and fulfillment requirements,” said Tod Yazdi, principal at TAGG, “We’ve been able to seamlessly and efficiently process orders from channels as diverse as client web-sites, Amazon, Wal-Mart and even Facebook and Groupon.”
Currently, TAGG is connecting to a broad range of high-volume customers and their trading partners and continues to add connections from within the growing SPS network.
Delivering Branded Omnichannel Fulfillment – DM Fulfillment
In early 2014, DM Fulfillment added SPS’s Universal Network integration to its omnichannel fulfillment capabilities, effortlessly accessing hundreds of retailers with a single connection.
