Catalyst International, a global provider of supply chain execution solutions, today announced its new bundled SAP data collection solution; Catalyst SAPConsole QuickStart aimed at enterprises taking their first steps to mobilise the warehouse using radio frequency (RF) data collection devices.
QuickStart is a package of hardware, services and enhanced RF transactions that significantly reduces the cost, risk and effort associated with traditional SAPConsole implementation and is particularly suited to the manufacturing and retail industries. By combining handheld devices, RF mobile infrastructure and the most commonly implemented transactions, QuickStart can be rapidly introduced bringing almost immediate benefits and return on investment.
Enrico Cabrini, SAP Solutions Manager for Catalyst International explains: RF is becoming an increasingly attractive option for enterprises looking to mobilise their data collection but many companies are put off by the time that it takes to implement a fully customisable solution. With QuickStart a lot of the groundwork is already done. Weve taken the most commonly implemented transactions such as goods receipt for purchase order and goods issue to cost centre and combined these with our SAP experience to create a powerful package for enterprises looking to mobilise their operations.
The three Catalyst QuickStart offerings include:
The basic QuickStart package includes RF handheld devices, an RF infrastructure and twelve of the most commonly implemented RF transactions, which typically achieve the highest and fastest ROI. QuickStart also provides companies with full implementations services and customer support
With QuickStart+, enterprises can increase the number of RF transactions beyond those in the basic package through an extended business blueprint phase. Additional hardware is also available for organisations that have over 12 users.
For enterprises whose needs extend beyond QuickStart+, Catalyst can work with organisations to establish their requirements for a traditional SAP project incorporating a full Business Blueprint, SAP realisation, ABAP/4 development, go-live and support, and project services.
