MINNEAPOLIS, MN (November 16, 2016) – HighJump, a global provider of supply chain network solutions, announced today a new strategic relationship with Otimis, an organization focused exclusively on HighJump solutions and voice systems. HighJump and Otimis will now collaborate more closely on localized marketing, pre-sales, implementation, and in-language customer support for projects throughout Latin America.

HighJump's warehouse management system (WMS) has seen double-digit growth throughout the region over the last five years, helping customers better manage complex supply chains. The adaptability of HighJump’s WMS allows businesses to create efficient workflows that match the way they work. That users can make changes themselves generates a lower total cost of ownership, which is crucial in a developing region poised for continued economic expansion.

"HighJump is making an important strategic move in the region, and our team at Otimis couldn't be more excited about it,” said Otimis CEO Helcio Lenz. “It is the consolidation of a long-term relationship between HighJump and Otimis, adding another layer of commitment and collaboration. HighJump is once again demonstrating a strong focus on this region, and we at Otimis are honored to be a part of it."

Otimis, with almost 60 employees fully dedicated to HighJump in São Paulo and Blumenau, has implemented HighJump solutions around the world for a decade. The company has supported HighJump implementations at more than 50 distribution centers with over 4,000 users. Those projects have given Otimis valuable expertise with HighJump’s software.

"There has been a surge in our business in Latin America and Otimis has become more and more vital to that expansion,” said David Houser, senior vice president of international sales at HighJump. “Otimis has a proven track record of attracting large, well-known customers in Brazil and turning them into successful HighJump users. We are excited to expand their expertise to customers and prospective customers throughout Latin America."
