Founded in 1996, Mantis is an international WMS/ logistics software and solutions vendor. The company’s flagship WMS/logistics platform software suite, Logistics Vision Suite (LVS), marks a great leap in WMS technology. LVS offers true adaptability and outstanding flexibility in a high-performance environment to help businesses achieve quick return on investment (ROI) and lower total cost of ownership (TCO).
Recently, Mantis joined forces with Ecovium—a leading logistics IT provider in the DACH region to—shape the future of logistics.
Mantis’ award-winning WMS, combined with the strong complementary products portfolio of Ecovium, will make the group a global provider with a 360-degree Supply Chain Execution (SCE) solutions portfolio. With this positioning, Ecovium will play a key role in international markets.
“Together, we will offer integrated, state-of-the-art SCE solutions on a worldwide level by combining platforms for WMS TMS, shipping, and customs. Our common vision is to offer customers intelligent optimization of the end-to-end supply chain processes. This is where we see the added value. We call this “The Simple Chain”” says John Pedder, the COO of Mantis Americas.
After extended market research, Mantis identified that the future of the supply chain is SCE convergence, where SCE functional silos are broken down.
Both Mantis and Ecovium, in discussion for a potential common future, acknowledged the common goal and realized that this was a perfect match, as they offer complementary software and IT solutions for the supply chain and operate in complementary geographies.
The management team at Ecovium is very impressed with the Mantis team. Mantis has done an outstanding job in establishing itself as a leading WMS provider with a global reach, and the extensive expertise complements the Ecovium strategy perfectly. Now that they have joined forces, experts from all areas of logistics IT will work together on intelligent solutions for the entire value chain. On top of that, both Mantis’ and Ecovium’s partners will now be able to deliver more to their markets, and better meet their customers’ aspirations.
In their rigorous market research, the duo has found that the logistics market in North America is vibrant and growing by double digits. Especially during the pandemic era, the growth is steady and strong. To this end, Ecovium and Mantis consider North America an indispensable chain of the logistics growth of Europe and the focus of the Ecovium portfolio umbrella.
