WATERLOO, Ontario, May 24, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Descartes Systems Group (Nasdaq:DSGX) (TSX:DSG), the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, and NetSuite Inc.

“Our distribution channels have expanded dramatically and we could not have handled the growth, or the huge seasonal spikes we experience during the holidays, without the right technology in place,” said Dan Sloan, COO at Redcat Racing. “We’ve been able to easily scale and flex the combined solution from NetSuite and Descartes to support an expanding product line and channels that now include Amazon, 2000+ dealers and hobby shops, and our own ecommerce site. While the mix and complexity of orders varies greatly, the solution has helped us to increase order accuracy, cut fulfilment cycles and improve warehouse performance while sustaining customer satisfaction, growth and profits.”

With flexible NetSuite extensions including mobile warehouse, shipping automation, barcode scanning and e-commerce application integration, businesses can select the options that best match their requirements.
