Cadre Technologies Launches Cadence Fulfillment Software Family
Cadre Technologies launches Cadence fulfillment software
October 18, 2001, Denver, CO - Cadre Technologies announced today the availability of Cadence, a new fulfillment software solution designed to help distributors increase operational efficiency and improve customer service.
Cadence was built as a single system that consolidates critical distribution activities such as warehouse management, order entry, transportation management and activity billing. It was designed to replace the individual host, warehouse and shipping systems which traditionally could not exchange critical data.
"We've integrated the important systems for distributors and
fulfillment houses so that they can operate seamlessly from the point of order taking all the way through shipping and billing," explained Joe Peters, President of Cadre Technologies. "Each component works with the other without the need for duplication of data or cumbersome interfaces. And each component individually represents significant improvements in warehouses, shipping departments and call centers."
The Cadence suite of products includes Cadence Warehouse Management (WMS) Cadence Transportation Management (TMS), Cadence Order Management (OMS) and Cadence Activity Billing (ABS). The systems are built on the Microsoft Windows 2000 platform.
Complementing Cadre's Cadence software products are professional
consulting, implementation and support services. Services include
warehouse analysis and planning, database conversion, operational
consulting, training and ongoing software support. Cadre offers
Cadence both in a phased implementation or as a total systems
Cadence WMS is designed to organize and improve product flow and
throughput in distribution and fulfillment centers and manufacturing warehouses. It precisely monitors and controls inventory and work activity at every stage of product movement. It also significantly improves personnel productivity, resource scheduling and customer service.
Cadence TMS enables distributors to automatically ship products more efficiently, more accurately, and in more environments. It combines easy-to-use browser-based software and barcode scanning
technology that takes the paperwork, the guesswork and the mistakes out of the even most complex package delivery environment.
With this order management system, distributors use the same
database that runs the warehouse to serve customers. Sales and
customer service representatives know immediately whether products are available, from both local and remote warehouses as well as virtual warehouses. It also feeds customer information to Cadence warehouse and transportation systems in order to achieve and maintain superior levels of service.
The Cadence Activity Billing System provides complete tracking and billing of all activities such as receiving, storage, picking, shipping and order capture which are generated by the WMS, TMS and OMS modules. It creates a customizable, detailed schedule of billable and non-billable services including service pricing which produces invoices through customers' accounting systems.
All Cadence products are built from the ground-up on the Microsoft Windows 2000/SQL Server platform. They have been designed to give distribution companies maximum control over tracking product movement and locations. The systems execute all logistics operations including receiving, putaway, picking, inventory control and advanced shipping. They are delivered in either on-site or hosted environments.
Experienced leaders in distribution-related technology, with
consulting, operations and technical backgrounds, founded Cadre
Technologies, Inc. It has management, operations and technical
offices in Denver, Colorado and Columbia, Maryland.
