We received some great news as we’re packing our bags for VMworld Europe in Barcelona next week - iland, along with our customer Synergy Logistics, have been shortlisted for ‘Best Cloud Project’ in the Best of VMworld Europe Awards which are judged by Computer Weekly. First of all, Congratulations to Synergy Logistics for this recognition of their industry-leading ‘cloud-first’ policy and their use of cloud innovation to drive value for their customers.
Synergy Logistics is a software house which specialises in warehouse management technologies and solutions delivered in a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model. Synergy Logistics uses the global VMware-based iland cloud to host their market-leading SaaS warehouse management solution, SnapFulfil, which is used in warehouses by retail, manufacturing and third-party logistics customers throughout Europe and America.
Synergy was one of the first companies to recognise the potential of cloud technology as a platform for delivering a best in breed warehouse management system. Online commerce meant their customers were experiencing a huge rise in the number of daily transactions and cloud infrastructure held the promise of providing the agility and flexibility needed to manage new logistics demands of next or same day delivery. However, not wanting to build and manage the cloud infrastructure themselves in order to focus on their core logistics competencies, Synergy sought a partnership with a cloud provider to deliver a secure, scalable cloud hosting solution.
After evaluating the security, availability, reliability and service levels of the iland cloud, a relationship was established that has proven to be a strategic differentiator for the Snapfulfil SaaS application.
Many customers are highly transactional with warehouses that can handle upwards of 50,000 orders a day, rising sharply during peak periods. The iland VMware-based cloud infrastructure provides the agility, cost-effectiveness and on-demand flexibility needed to support and manage these volumes.
We’ve got our fingers crossed for the awards announcement. If you’re at VMworld Europe next week, come and visit us in Booth E603 and schedule a demo of iland cloud services including IaaS, DRaaS and cloud backup to learn more about how companies like Synergy Logistics are driving business growth with cloud innovation.
