The XPS platform is even more powerful with its integrations to leading ecommerce marketplaces, ERP providers and supply chain platforms.

Capital Clarity’s deep expertise in both the ecommerce and enterprise software industries enabled us to secure the ideal strategic partner to significantly enhance the trajectory of our business in both domestic and international markets.” said Wasaga Clack, CEO of XPS Technologies.
“XPS complements our significant recent investments in the ecommerce fulfillment and shipping solutions domain,” said Edward J. Ryan, Descartes’ CEO. “We welcome the XPS customers, employees and partners to the Descartes community and, together, look forward to helping the community manage the full lifecycle of domestic and international ecommerce shipments.”
