Aspire enters the Supply Chain Visibility space with ICL joining portfolio

Aspire Software is pleased to announce that we have entered the supply chain visibility space with the integration of ICL, a leading provider of solutions for transportation and logistics. Valsoft Corp’s latest acquisition pushes Aspire into an exciting new vertical in our extensive portfolio.

Established by Patrick Donahoe in 1992, ICL is driven by a singular mission: to attain industry recognition as the foremost leader in delivering product visibility and invoice-auditing solutions across the logistics supply chain. The company has proven its success as a valuable partner, helping clients achieve their objectives.

”As we expanded from our core automotive business of supply chain visibility to address the needs of a more diverse range of shippers, we recognized the need to partner with a company with the resources and agility to help ICL move to the next level,” stated Patrick Donahoe. “Valsoft’s culture and operating model are well matched to our organization and provide the conditions needed to accelerate ICL’s growth plans.”

ICL’s presence in the logistics industry

ICL offers a wide range of specialized products and services tailored specifically for the logistics industry. For Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) involved in vehicle manufacturing, ICL provides the Vehicle Logistics Management System (VLMS), a cloud-based solution that centralizes and digitizes data from supply chain partners. This comprehensive system streamlines invoice tracking and auditing processes.

Additionally, ICL offers Rubicon VLS, serving as a lead logistics provider, leveraging industry expertise and connections to establish a top-tier network for transporting finished vehicles.

Auto haulers can benefit from the ePOD App, a mobile application that simplifies communication and reporting between haulers and OEMs, eliminating paper-based processes.

For yard managers overseeing vehicle storage and operations, ICL provides YMS Express, which includes software and mobile applications to efficiently manage yard activities.

Lastly, the Rail Shipment Visibility Portal (RSVP) is a software solution catering to rail shippers, allowing them to consolidate data from various railways, providing comprehensive visibility and advanced analytics for their shipments.

“We are excited about the addition of ICL to our portfolio of companies. Thanks to their comprehensive product offerings, ICL has established itself as the leader in automotive logistics, yard vehicle management and rail logistics,” stated Gustavo Vargas, Operating Partner at Aspire Software, the operating division of Valsoft. “The partnership between ICL and Valsoft marks the fusion of innovation and expertise, a partnership that promises to redefine the future of the vehicle logistics industry.”
