IMI Warehouse from CDC Software – awarded for user-friendliness

Stockholm, May 24, 2007 — The WMS product in the IMI Supply Chain suite, IMI Warehouse, was nominated for the UsersAward prize by the warehouse users of customer BergendahlsGruppen AB, Sweden’s fourth biggest grocery retail company. IMI Warehouse was one of five IT solutions that qualified for the finale. UsersAward is a prize where users themselves select applications based on user-friendliness and user-benefits. The winner was an in-house development application but IMI Warehouse was awarded a bronze medal for best standard application.

Stefan Karlsson, shift manager with BergendahlsGruppen said: ”Without our WMS application IMI Warehouse from CDC Software we would not have been where we are today. Since the system was installed we have more than doubled the volumes in existing facility and operate 3 shift production thanks to a solution that is easy to continuously upgrade and adapt to our business.”

“We are proud and happy to have reached the finale in the UsersAward,” says Mats Nordgren, Product Manager for IMI Warehouse, and continues: “We work hard to listen to and understand our customers’ needs to provide solutions that enable them in turn to be agile and responsive to their customers.
