Catalyst Optimizes SAP WM Software for Cadbury Adams Manufacturing

Catalyst implements SAPConsole for real-time connectivity throughout the supply chain


Milwaukee, WI, December 2, 2003 — Catalyst International, Inc. (OTC: CLYS.OB), a global provider of supply chain execution (SCE) solutions, today announced it worked with Cadbury Adams Manufacturing to implement SAPConsole in order to leverage their SAP investment and optimize the efficiency of their supply chain. Catalyst is one of the few and largest SAP-certified Services Partners focused specifically on SAP Logistics Execution System (LES).

Cadbury Adams implemented SAPConsole, which provides real-time connectivity to SAP functionality without the need for additional middleware. The solution supports all major warehouse processes provided by SAP LES.

Cadbury Adams Manufacturing, recently acquired by Cadbury Schweppes, plc, is a global confectionery manufacturer most well known for their manufacture of the brands Trident®, Halls®, Dentyne®, and Certs® branded products. Cadbury Adams implemented SAPConsole at their Rockford, IL manufacturing facility to improve productivity, reduce operating costs, and provide more accurate and timely data throughout their supply chain.

"We opted to implement SAPConsole to save time and reduce errors incurred with our existing manual desktop entry process. The new operation provides up-to-the-minute inventory information for better decision-making abilities,“ said Ken Szell, Rockford‘s Material Flow Operations Leader.

"We chose Catalyst to manage the project because they have extensive experience with SAPConsole, and already had a library of RF transactions available for immediate implementation. Catalyst saved us substantial time and costs compared to other consultants, and provided a solution that is already proven within the marketplace, said Don Roloff, Planning and IT Manager for Cadbury Adams.“
