Now You Really See It : Catalyst International Brings Visual Practices to Labor

Milwaukee, WI, April 25, 2007 — Catalyst International, Inc announces the release of CatalystCommand™ Labor Management software product encompassing workforce performance reporting for the lean enterprise. This release includes Catalyst's new BestPath technology for mapping work paths in a facility and real-time graphical displays and alerts to reveal performance bottlenecks and capacity.

CatalystCommand™ Labor Management is a Java/J2EE, web-enabled application that shows performance, progress and production information for multiple warehouses, yards and other applications simultaneously, on a real-time basis, all through a single instance.

"Catalyst has designed a Labor Management system that is extraordinarily configurable. One that will generate discrete engineered labor standards on nearly every activity within the four walls of the warehouse and yard. If you can define the process and capture the data, Catalyst can generate an accurate, discrete labor standard for it. Better yet, the engineer defines the calculations within the software." Says Larry Parker, Labor Practice Leader of ESYNC, "Industrial Engineers will love it."

This latest LMS release provides the easiest and most efficient configuration possible on the market, for travel times, time standards and other critical elements for engineered labor standards projects. "To remain competitive, todays’ enterprises must have accurate and accessible labor measurement information that is easy to understand, explain, and process." says Michael Eleftheriou, CEO of Catalyst International, "the powerful visualization tools introduced as part of
the Catalyst LMS solution, renders it the most user-friendly and efficient tool, in the modern era of Lean Operational Environments; no enterprise can afford to be without it."

Catalyst’s CatalystCommand™ Labor Management is available as a stand-alone product or as an integrated component of the CatalystComplete™ suite of supply chain software products or connected real-time to other ERP and Warehouse management solutions, such as the SAP™ LES environment.
