Catalyst International, a global provider of supply chain execution (SCE) solutions, has launched its new CatalystComplete™ 9.2 SCE solution suite. The new release supports the core technology stack of IBM and features enhanced composite applications that can be easily integrated into any Catalyst International WMS, SAP® WM or other WMS solutions.
The new solution suite is compatible with IBM DB2 Universal Database, IBM WebSphere® Application Server, IBM WebSphere MQ, AIX operating system and other products. It offers expanded functionality for labour management – which typically represents the largest portion of distribution costs – as well as for transportation management and slotting.
In addition, the RFID capabilities of CatalystComplete™ 9.2 include customisable tag assignments, enhanced filtering, support for additional RFID and related devices, and advanced process and event management capabilities. The SCE solution suite also offers device management integration to the SAP Auto-ID Infrastructure.
“Our latest solution suite combines modular flexibility and user-specified capabilities with ease of integration with IBM, SAP WM and other technologies,” said Steve Barker, VP of Sales and Marketing, EMEA, for Catalyst International. “CatalystComplete further reinforces our commitment to give customers practical solutions for optimising the value of their supply chains, no matter which technology platform they decide to use.”
Catalyst International's Enterprise Labour Management and Reporting is a powerful tool for controlling labour expenses and achieving fast ROI. Its enhanced capabilities include multi-shift support, department level reporting, idle time tracking and analysis, and performance feedback for online users.
The Transportation Management module facilitates integrated transportation planning, execution and auditing for multiple distribution models (traditional and flow-through) and transportation methods. It allows customers to use multiple parcel manifesting solutions and improve their performance on compliance, dynamic routing and consolidation.
Catalyst International's integrated Slotting solution provides a flexible, rules-based methodology to optimise inventory positioning for outbound distribution. It optimises replenishment activities by taking into consideration other warehouse tasks and improves productivity by up to 25 percent.
