HighJump, a global supplier of Supply Chain solutions, announced this week a new strategic alliance with Otimis, an organization focused exclusively on HighJump solutions and voice systems. With this new agreement, HighJump and Otimis will work together on marketing strategies, pre-sales, deployment and customer support across Latin America.
HighJump's Warehouse Management System (WMS) has seen double-digit growth throughout the region over the past five years, and has helped customers better manage their highly complex supply chains. HighJump's WMS adaptability enables companies to create efficient workflows that are fully adaptable to the operation. Users can make changes to the system without vendor dependency, which leads to lower total cost of ownership and is crucial in a region in continuous economic expansion.
"HighJump is making an important strategic move in the region, and the Otimis team could not be more enthusiastic about it," said Otimis CEO Helcio Lenz. "It's the consolidation of a long-term relationship between HighJump and Otimis, coupled with commitment and collaboration. HighJump is once again demonstrating a strong focus in this region, and we at Otimis are honored to be a part of it. "
Otimis, with nearly 60 employees fully dedicated to HighJump in São Paulo and Blumenau, has been implementing HighJump solutions worldwide for a decade. The company has supported HighJump in deployments in more than 50 distribution centers with more than 4,000 users. These projects gave Otimis valuable insight into HighJump's solutions.
"There has been an increase in our business in Latin America and Otimis has become increasingly vital to this expansion," said David Houser, HighJump's Senior Vice President of International Sales. "Otimis has a proven track record of attracting great, respected customers in Brazil and turning them into successful HighJump users. We look forward to expanding their expertise to clients and potential customers throughout Latin America."
