RedPrairie Corporation has acquired Toronto, Canada-based Vortex Connect, a provider of mobile workforce management systems that strengthen business-to-employee (B2E) communications and operations.

The combination of assets—RedPrairie’s Enterprise Workforce Management (EWFM) and the Vortex mobility platform—creates a single provider of mobile-enabled systems that manage the workforce across operational disciplines including warehouses, distribution centers, and stores.

This acquisition embeds RedPrairie EWFM with new capabilities such as mobile shift management and bidding, mobile communications and operations management, and employee self-service. The combination of features enables companies to streamline operational processes, maximize employee productivity, reduce costs, and enhance efficiencies by communicating data in real-time through multi-channel touch points.

RedPrairie will leverage the Vortex acquisition to establish a Mobility Center of Excellence in Toronto. The Center of Excellence will focus on using mobility effectively throughout the extended supply chain as well as the application of mobility across RedPrairie’s entire system footprint.

Building upon Vortex’s heritage, the Center of Excellence will put Vortex mobility experts at the center of RedPrairie’s research and development, product strategy, and mobile systems groups to promote continuous innovation, thought leadership, and mobility integration for existing and emerging RedPrairie offerings.
