"The advanced warehouse management capabilities in SSA WMS, including kitting and serial number tracking, set SSA Global apart from the more than 80 companies we evaluated," said Ron Hawkins, systems analysts manager, TMX Aerospace. "We're confident the SSA Global warehouse management solution will help us meet the needs of our current customers and partners in the aerospace industry and deliver the scalability necessary to support our long-term growth plans."
Embracing a service-oriented architecture (SOA), SSA WMS will provide TMX with the capability to reconfigure its supply chain execution processes in real time to meet changing client needs without hard coding the application itself.
"With its embedded SOA capability, the SSA WMS solution has been designed to enhance a company's competitiveness through greater IT agility, ease of use and low total cost of ownership in their logistics processes," said Jim Handy, global president, SCM, SSA Global.
SSA WMS, a best-in-class high performance distribution solution, is designed to perform the complex, business-critical operations demanded of modern fulfillment operations. SSA WMS is part of SSA Supply Chain Management (SSA SCM) and is used by more than 600 customers, including the world's leading third-party logistics providers, electronics firms, auto makers and retailers.

All of these forward-looking statements are based on estimates and assumptions made by our management that, although we believe to be reasonable, are inherently uncertain. Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to, economic, competitive, governmental and technological factors outside of our control that may cause our business, strategy or actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements. We operate in a changing environment in which new risks can emerge from time to time. It is not possible for management to predict all of these risks, nor can it assess the extent to which any factor, or a combination of factors, may cause our business, strategy or actual results to differ materially from those contained in forward-looking statements. Factors you should consider that could cause these differences include, among other things:
-- General economic and business conditions, including exchange rate fluctuations in the United States and abroad; -- Our ability to identify acquisition opportunities and effectively and cost-efficiently integrate acquisitions; -- Our ability to maintain effective internal control over financial reporting; -- Our ability to attract and retain personnel, including key personnel; -- Our success in developing and introducing new services and products; -- Competition in the software industry, as it relates to both our existing and potential new customers.
