Dulles, VA & Greenville, SC — December 4, 2008 — Everest® Software, award-winning provider of a fully-integrated business management software for small and medium businesses (SMBs), and Foxfire, a leading provider of Warehouse Management Systems (WMS), today announced their partnership and plans to integrate their products so that SMBs can efficiently and affordably operate their entire business and warehouse. The partnership creates a powerful integrated software product suite that includes ecommerce, point of sale, accounting, and real-time inventory and warehouse management.
By adding Foxfire's WMS capability to the Everest business operating system, clients have complete real-time supply chain visibility from procurement and sales order through customer shipment. Clients also use the WMS to manage labor and drive efficiencies inside the warehouse operation with real-time visibility into work completed and productivity.
In economic times like these, SMBs strive to make their businesses more efficient and competitive with affordable technology investments. A product suite that has integration between the back office and the warehouse out-of-the-box can save customers up to 50% of the WMS project cost. Global 2000 companies have long-required these integrated functions in their business systems and enjoyed the benefits and returns on these investments. Now Everest is making this type of integrated solution available to SMBs for a fraction of the cost.
Everest is targeting SMBs where the need for real-time warehousing is important. Edwin Miller, president & CEO of Everest Software, commented, "We have the unique opportunity to offer our customers a world-class business operating system with a best of breed WMS. Now, with the integration between Everest software and Foxfire WMS, SMBs can afford a complete solution and they appreciate more than ever an opportunity to save money."

By optimizing the warehouse and supply chain, clients are able to significantly increase profitability by improving inventory accuracy, customer satisfaction, and employee productivity," says John Sterling, CEO of Foxfire.
