Nexternal’s omnichannel commerce platform includes an order management system that captures both B2B and B2C orders. It is used to run call centers, generate and manage subscription orders, retrieve Amazon marketplace orders, create club orders and receive orders from other systems via its API.

“HighJump continues to build on our strategy of providing end-to-end supply chain solutions built upon a common, adaptable technology platform,” said Michael Cornell, CEO of HighJump. “The acquisition of Nexternal adds important commerce capabilities to further deliver upon HighJump’s omnichannel vision and provides new options for HighJump’s 14,000 global customers.”

“The combination of Nexternal and HighJump will allow us to bring a unique set of technologies to our customers and our markets,” said Alex Gile, founder and president of Nexternal.
“Through its TrueCommerce division, HighJump is currently facilitating B2B transactions via EDI.  For those customers, we can provide a second option – capturing B2B transactions via the web. Currently there is not a single provider of a unified ecommerce platform and warehouse management system. We look forward to changing that with this combination.”

Last July, HighJump merged with WMS and supply chain software rival Accellos.
