Kurt Salmon, a global management consulting firm, has sold its well-known GoalPost software business unit to Knighted, a leading developer of supply chain software solutions. GoalPost is a software programme that supports the logistics of distribution centres, call centres and retail stores. Its main strength is the ability to track and analyse labour costs in supply chain processes. GoalPost was used by many of the Fortune Global 1000. Kurt Salmon has not disclosed for how much it sold the business unit.
“With the worldwide supply chain software market expected to exceed $8 billion annually in 2012, the Knighted acquisition of GoalPost will uniquely position our company to create solutions for the global market,” said Craig Wilensky, partner at Knighted. “As labour costs become the primary expense in distribution, this new value proposition provides our customers with sophisticated labour solutions to manage their businesses.”
