CLM from ClearOrbit gets “Powered by SAP NetWeaver” status
ClearOrbit, a leading provider of real-time supply chain execution and reverse logistics software solutions, today announced its widely-used Compliance Label Manager (CLM) barcode and radio-frequency identification (RFID) printing management software has garnered “Powered by SAP NetWeaver” status, extending SAP enterprise applications for supply chain execution.
The certification was achieved by demonstrating that CLM meets all of the technical and business criteria established by SAP for its SAP NetWeaver Certified status. CLM is a sophisticated, scalable enterprise printing platform offering a highly configurable environment for barcode and label production and management.
Hundreds of companies, including Welch's, Canon, Biogen Idec, GE, Honeywell and Alcoa across a variety of industries currently use RFID and CLM to automate the design, development, deployment and printing of barcodes and labels across their global operations.
CLM enables manufacturers and distributors to quickly design and print labels to meet customer and regulatory labeling requirements, enabling users to define and manage barcode and label formats without the expense and maintenance of custom programming, and supports instantaneous label changes globally with no code modification.
“ClearOrbit continues to lead the industry with innovative, easy-to-use and adaptable solutions that increase efficiencies and decrease costs of supply chain operations,” said Warren Sumner, ClearOrbit's vice president of marketing and products. “CLM's NetWeaver Certification is another important step in our ongoing commitment to delivering solutions that enable companies to achieve higher levels of success throughout their global logistics operations. We look forward to our continued work with SAP and other industry leaders dedicated to improving customer margins by driving down supply costs.”
CLM can be used throughout the supply chain, including inbound items from suppliers, internal warehousing / manufacturing operations, and outbound for shipping, distribution, and logistics. CLM offers proven scalability and performance with an n-tier, Java-based load balancing barcode print server. A Web-based management console provides real-time control over all printers and network hardware, including queue management and dynamic label reprint capabilities.
To achieve “Powered by SAP NetWeaver” status, ClearOrbit demonstrated that CLM can be successfully deployed on the SAP NetWeaver Application Server-based J2EE Engine 7.1. The SAP NetWeaver platform powers the SAP Business Suite family of applications and solutions such as CLM from ClearOrbit. SAP NetWeaver unifies integration technologies into a single platform and is pre-integrated with business applications, enabling change and reducing the need for custom integration.
ClearOrbit's real-time supply chain execution and returns management solutions improve the speed, visibility, and control of extended manufacturing and distribution supply chains. Since 1994, Austin, Texas-based ClearOrbit has assisted more than 320 clients in automating and controlling process execution within their extended supply networks.
