CDC Software, a wholly owned subsidiary of CDC Corporation and a provider of industry-specific enterprise software applications and business services, has completed its acquisition of Milwaukee-based Catalyst International, a leading provider of supply chain execution solutions and services.
As previously announced, Catalyst's software solutions and services are highly complementary to CDC Software's IMI Supply Chain product line and the company's CDC Global Services operations. The IMI suite of supply chain solutions supports demand-driven fulfillment in multi-company, multi-site and multi-channel environments. The Catalyst business services offerings will be merged into CDC Global Services which provides consulting and outsourcing services across a variety of technologies and industries.
Catalyst provides a broad range of integrated, open standards-based solutions that service key areas of complex supply chains and distribution networks. The solutions can operate as standalone modules that can readily integrate into an enterprise's existing applications. Key functionality in the Catalyst suite includes warehouse management, transportation management, dynamic route planning, slotting, labor management, cross dock planning, and yard management.
