TIBCO Integration Software Improves Business Agility for Smart & Final

1/13/2004 - TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX), a leading enabler of real-time business and the world’s largest independent business integration software company, as demonstrated by market share and analyst reports, announced that Smart & Final has selected TIBCO’s business integration software to integrate a supply-chain system and pricing system that help maximize business agility. Smart & Final, a leading grocery wholesaler, has been a pioneer of innovative business processes in the grocery industry for more than 130 years.

"It’s hard to overestimate the importance of the TIBCO project to Smart & Final,” said Bob Byles, vice president of information services at Smart & Final. “Using our old architecture, the cost of integrating new applications cancelled out the gains—but TIBCO makes it possible for us to quickly and cost-effectively implement applications that allow us to evolve our business processes and grow the company.”

TIBCO enables a loosely coupled architecture that makes adding or replacing applications a simple, straightforward process, giving Smart & Final the flexibility to implement applications that can improve the company’s bottom line. End-to-end supply-chain integration provides employees with the tools they need to negotiate successfully with vendors and understand promotional opportunities, while Smart & Final’s new electronic price tag system allows the company to rapidly adjust to changing market conditions.

“TIBCO’s leadership in integration is demonstrated by the timely way that Smart & Final is now able to respond to the market,” said Ram Menon, chief strategist, TIBCO Software Inc. “TIBCO’s software allows Smart & Final to more easily and less expensively integrate systems that help the company increase its profit margin by competing more effectively.”
