Paramus, NJ and Bangkok, Thailand -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/15/2007 -- Made4net and M-Focus, have signed a partnership agreement appointing M-Focus as an authorized provider of Made4net's SCExpert™ in Thailand. The partnership between M-Focus, an experienced business solutions provider in Thailand, and the leading supply chain execution solutions company, Made4net, expects to capture a substantial market share in one of the highest growth regions for supply chain management software in Asia/Pacific.
M-Focus and Made4net have combined forces to meet the emerging demand for enterprise solutions at a time when the Thai market is seeing accelerated growth in global and domestic trade. Small and medium sized businesses are aligning with the Thai Government’s plan to establish Thailand as a logistics hub in Indo-China and responding to the ICT Ministry’s promoting the use of RFID technology to track and trace products and adopt efficient software solutions to increase supply chain visibility. This trend has resulted in an expanding need for a real end-to-end supply chain execution solution in an increasingly complex supply chain environment.
The teaming of M-Focus and Made4net will empower Thai enterprises with the comprehensive solutions and high visibility needed in this expanding supply chain environment. M-Focus’s rich experience as a business solutions provider in Thailand, representing numerous international business solution packages throughout the years, and Made4net’s SCExpert™ will provide distributors and 3PL’s with in-depth consultations, rapid implementation services and continued monitoring to ensure a highly accurate, transparent and efficient supply chain.
"We have a lot of experience in the business of enterprise solutions, and we have been looking for a supply chain execution solution that we could lead the market with for quite a long time. We found Made4net to be a very unique solution having the ability to provide a true end-to-end solution for the entire execution part in the supply chain, based on one platform." said Pricha Pantumsinchai, CEO of M-Focus.
Commenting on the partnership, Amit Levy, Director at Made4net explained, "These are powerful solutions, from Warehouse to Delivery. Their innovative architecture will allow us to approach not only the high-end market, but also the medium market, which is definitely an interesting market segment with a huge potential.
