Move will enhance integration of the teams and will allow significant cross-selling opportunities

CDC Software, a wholly owned subsidiary of CDC Corporation and a provider of industry-specific enterprise software and services, has announced that the U.K staff of the recently acquired Catalyst International has moved into CDC Softwares Burnham office.

As previously announced, CDC Software completed its acquisition of Catalyst International, a leading provider of supply chain execution solutions and services, in September 2007.  Catalysts software solutions and services are highly complementary to CDC Softwares CDC Supply Chain product line and the companys CDC Global Services operations. The CDC Supply Chain suite of solutions supports demand-driven fulfilment in multi-company, multi-site and multi-channel environments.  The Catalyst business services offerings are merging into CDC Global Services which provides consulting and outsourcing services across a variety of technologies and industries. 

Per Norling, President of CDC Supply Chain, said, We are delighted to welcome the Catalyst team to CDCs Burnham office.  Our process manufacturing and supply chain product lines and services cross similar verticals and bringing them together under one roof will result in a greater level of collaboration and cross-selling.  Additionally, it will allow us to reduce the overhead of running two offices that are in close proximity.

Carl Power, Services Director of Catalyst said, This move is a clear indication of the commitment CDC Software has shown to us in terms of integrating the Catalyst business into the companys daily operations.  The acquisition will not only benefit Catalyst as a company but it will also benefit our customers, who will continue to receive the highest levels of support and commitment.

The Catalyst suite provides integrated, open standards-based solutions for warehouses, supply chains and distribution networks including warehouse management, transportation management, dynamic route planning, slotting, labour management, cross dock planning, and yard management.

Catalyst solutions are also based on an event-driven, rules-based workflow platform that will serve as an integration backbone for CDC Softwares applications in the future.
