Technology & Software Product NewsCatalyst announced launch of XPS, an Integrated Cross-Carrier Packing and Shipping System. Catalyst’s XPS simplifies all aspects of packing and shipping. It seamlessly integrates with SAP® as well as leading third party parcel carriers’ systems to deliver complete visibility and control over all aspects of order fulfillment from the warehouse to the customer.
XPS has been designed to increase the efficiency of the distribution process for SAP customers shipping large volumes of parcels shipments. The system has been completely developed by Catalyst and its development partner Supply Chain Technologies in the native SAP programming languages, utilizing the standard SAP objects and architecture; and provides an easy to manage, centralized view of the entire packing and shipping processes, across multiple distribution centers and multiple carriers. As goods arrive in packing areas, XPS provides a series of clear and intuitive graphical screens that allows distribution managers to fully customize the packing process. From these screens, operators can facilitate the handling of products into the right packages and containers using a comprehensive range of pre-configured options. The system also generates detailed bar code labels covering specific customer requests and key information required by shipping companies.
Brian Thorn of Catalyst concludes, “XPS includes full integration with most of the leading distribution companies’ parcel carrier systems, including FedEx, UPS, DHL and the US Postal Service, with integration to additional carriers being developed."
