COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado – February 17, 2011 – Accellos has appointed Bill Knapp as General Manager of its shipping and EDI products and its Supply Chain Essentials product line.

Formerly President of vSync, Inc., Knapp came to Accellos in January 2010 by way of acquisition. In early 2010, he took on the responsibility of overseeing Accellos’ ADC (automated data collection) sales team, and eventually broadened his leadership to the entire ADC team. He became an Accellos General Manager in the fall of 2010 and continues to preside over the ADC team and vSync.

Knapp brings a wealth of experience and qualifications to Accellos, having held key positions at vSync and other corporations such as Sterling Commerce.

Knapp manages several Accellos One products including Ship, Nexus, Pulse, Schedule, and Collect for GP. He also oversees the vSync Transaction Network, vSync EDI for Microsoft Dynamics® GP and AX, and vShip. He works primarily out of the vSync office in Columbus, Ohio, leading at least 25 people in multiple product teams and geographic locations.

“Bill Knapp is a great choice as GM of our new Supply Chain Essentials business unit,” said Ross Elliott, Accellos CTO. “His experience with our channel and with products, like EDI, that improve a company’s competitiveness in their market give him a unique perspective.  Our customers should prepare themselves for great solutions and even greater focus on delivering value.”
