ECN Group, a leader in Business Process Management (BPM) and Systems Integration, has incorporated Yellowfin’s Business Intelligence (BI) solution into its ECN Round Trip Logistics® (RTL®) product.

ECN is a global provider of supply chain and logistics software for the retail supply chain and border security markets.

RTL is online collaboration software for the supply chain industry. It allows suppliers, manufacturers, logistics service providers and retailers to collaborate within a common supply chain. RTL provides unified visibility of forward and reverse supply chain transactions and processes.

By embedding Yellowfin in RTL, ECN is able to deliver its customers increased supply chain visibility, via configurable reporting and analytics, that allow ECN’s customers to measure, monitor and manage supply chain processes.

“Yellowfin has enabled ECN customers to rapidly access customizable reports and dashboards,” said ECN Group CEO, John Axe. “Yellowfin will help ECN to enhance the connectivity and information available to our customers, providing them with the visibility to better manage, understand and relate to their own business data in a visual and powerful way.”

ECN Chief Software Architect, Jeff Martin, said that ECN selected Yellowfin because its single integrated 100 percent Web-based application was well aligned with RTL’s technology stack.

“Yellowfin provides a reporting and dashboard framework that seamlessly integrates with RTL – a SaaS [Software as a Service] based product. Yellowfin’s Web interface, for both reporting and administration, in conjunction with its multi-tenancy and mobile device support, made it a standout candidate.”

Yellowfin CEO, Glen Rabie, said that he was excited by the opportunity to work closely with another fast growing and innovative ANZ (Australian and New Zealand) based enterprise software company.

“ECN, like Yellowfin, is headquartered in ANZ and is a leader in their specific market. We look forward to contributing to their continued success.”

ECN was first established in 1996 and has over 3,500 customers with a strong presence in New Zealand, USA, Australia and Asia.
