Corporate Express threatened with software legal claim
- 19 April, 2010 12:15
ASX-listed IT and office supplies reseller, Corporate Express, is being threatened with legal proceedings from third-party software vendor, Masterpack.
In an ASX statement, the company said it had been advised Masterpack was seeking payment of $3.65 million from Corporate Express in licence fees and is alleging Corporate Express had not made sufficient licence payments for its ERP and warehouse management platform. It is also threatening legal proceedings in a bid to prevent the company using its offerings.
“The company considers this claim to be without merit and immaterial. These proceedings, if they are commenced, will be vigorously defended,” the company stated. Further details are expected to be released in a supplementary Targets Statement shortly.
Corporate Express is in the process of replacing the Masterpack system with an SAP platform, which is scheduled to be deployed throughout 2010 and completed by early 2011. According to its website, it will be using a variety of modules for sales and distribution, materials and financial management, CRM, controlling and logistics.
Corporate Express announced plans to rollout Axios’ IT service delivery platform, assyst, last month as part of a massive overhaul of internal operations. The new software platform will replace HP Service Desk.
