IBS is the trusted industry leader of ERP and WMS distribution software, preferred for consistently improving operational efficiencies and business performance for mid-market companies challenged by the complexities of managing distribution.

netLogistiK brings more than 13 years of experience in the implementation and support of technology solutions for retailers, 3PL and distribution companies, and manufacturers in Latin America.

With an inaugural partnership and office established in Mexico City earlier this year, IBS and netLogistiK will now bring the same focus to sales, marketing, service and support in the Bogota location.

"After visiting many IBS customers in the region and learning about their level of commitment to IBS solutions, our business strategy dictated a greater presence in the region," said Tim Conroy, General Manager for the Americas, IBS.  "Local representation and language support are imperative for success in this market, so we are very excited about expanding our partnership with netLogistiK to enable those capabilities.  We see netLogistiK as an extension of our IBS team and are now better positioned to help mid-sized companies improve their distribution initiatives in the region."

The Latin America market for supply chain management software grew to revenues of $337-million in 2012, according to market research firm Gartner.

"Our presence in the Latin America market is strong, but it is important to align with smart technology companies to drive our reputation and business growth," said Angel Torres, Director of netLogistiK Colombia.  "IBS has a great reputation in Europe and the U.S., so the company's solutions will help strengthen our own Latin America portfolio of products and services delivered to our valued customers."

IBS applications are designed to provide benefits such as lower IT cost through fixed monthly fees, reduced business risk, faster time to value and greater flexibility combined with the advanced functionality of the IBS industry-leading ERP and Supply Chain solutions.
