New Managed Service Allows Accellos’ proven 3PL Software to Be Deployed and Managed in an Enterprise Cloud

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado – April 23, 2012 – Accellos, Inc., a leading provider of supply chain execution software solutions, has launched a new Cloud managed service for its AccellosOne Enterprise 3PL product.

The new managed service will be offered to both existing and new customers running Accellos’ proven 3PL management software. The service includes the provisioning of the computing infrastructure required to run the software, system and database and administration services and technical support on the software. The service is sold as a subscription.

Key benefits of the Cloud managed service for AccellosOne Enterprise 3PL include:

  • Flexible subscription pricing
  • Elastic computing resources
  • System and database administration services ensures a healthy and stable system
  • High-availability data center provides redundant power, internet and cooling to maximize uptime
  • Automated system monitoring proactively identified issues before they impact operations
  • The ability to personalize the system to meet needs of 3PL operations

“We continually see our 3PL customers focused on the core of their operations including servicing their clients with perfect inventory and order execution,” said Joe Couto, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Accellos 3PL Business Unit.  “Although technology is important to 3PL’s, few want to be burdened by managing the underlying infrastructure to keep their systems running. Our new managed service removes this burden from the customer allowing them to focus on their core business.”

Accellos has teamed with Amazon Web Services to deliver the new Cloud service. AccellosOne Enterprise 3PL will utilize the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, which provides enterprise-class cloud technology that can be scaled to meet the needs of Accellos and Accellos customers.

“Cloud computing technology is perfect for 3PLs,” said Ross Elliott, EVP and Chief Technology Officer at Accellos. “The Cloud provides elastic computing resources that can flex as a 3PL grows. Additionally, it allows the 3PL to align its revenue and expense, because you don’t have large capital investment for expensive server hardware with the Cloud.”

The AccellosOne Enterprise 3PL platform is an integrated technology platform that addresses all the critical components of a multi-client 3PL operation. The system was designed by experienced 3PL professionals with experience working in multi-client 3PL operations. The AccellosOne Platform contains rich functionality developed over 20 years of working with multi-client 3PL operations and has gone through continuous technology updates to ensure it is easy to support and has a low total cost of ownership.
