The acquisition further strengthens RedPrairie's Retail Platform with proven functionality that will benefit customers with reduced operating costs from advanced store inventory and labor management planning.

"The continued functional expansion and enhancement of our retail platform allows us to provide customers with a broader and more flexible array of solutions for the challenges they face every day," says Mike Mayoras, RedPrairie CEO.

Adds Guy Dille, former President of SofTechnics and now Senior Vice President, Retail for RedPrairie, "Our company is proud of its successful history in retail. Joining RedPrairie allows us to draw from an even wider pool of resources to continue providing our customers with the tools for success and quality of service they have come to expect from us."

Mayoras continues, "The SofTechnics suite of fully-integrated software solutions has helped many leading retailers manage inventory, reduce operating costs, improve business operations and dramatically increase productivity.
