We are proud to announce that Nexternal has been acquired by HighJump, a United States-based market leading provider of commerce-enabled supply chain management solutions.

The combination of Nexternal and HighJump will allow us to bring a unique set of technologies to our customers and our markets. It will extend our eCommerce platform with warehouse management, advanced shipping capabilities, delivery management and the capability to become a member of a global trading network. This creates the opportunity for our customers to work with a single technology provider with an adaptable technology backbone for supply chain operations for organizations of all sizes.

As the founders of Nexternal, Eric Ross and I took considerable care in finding the right long-term partner for Nexternal. This combination is the best opportunity for our customers through the advancement of our eCommerce platform, and provides long-term opportunity for our employees. Nexternal will provide a foundation for HighJump in California and our platform significantly extends their solution suite.

More than anything else, what we found attractive about HighJump was the people themselves. Starting with top-level management and working down, we know you are going to love working with us as a part of HighJump. There is a very nice cultural fit and we believe that together we are going to do great things.

HighJump acquired the Nexternal platform because it enhances the opportunities for the HighJump customer base. Therefore, HighJump remains committed to the Nexternal platform in the future. We will continue to maintain and enhance the existing platform and, in the near future, we expect to offer Nexternal customers a broader set of supply chain software solutions.

The Nexternal and HighJump teams have taken great care to ensure there is no disruption in service to customers as a result of this transaction. We expect everything to operate as “business as usual”, including customer service and product technical support. All Nexternal employees including founders are staying on board.

I want to thank each and every one of you for being a loyal customer and for your continued commitment to our business, as we stay committed to yours. This next chapter is going to be exciting and we look forward to providing you with innovative software and business solutions.
