Integrated EDI and Warehouse Management for SMEs

Enablers collaborate on solution to help small, midsize suppliers meet large customers' electronic trading requirements

San Rafael, CA — February 7, 2005 — RedTail Solutions, a provider of outsourced electronic data interchange (EDI) services, has rolled out an integrated EDI and warehouse management solution intended to help small and midsize suppliers meet the electronic trading requirements of their large customers.

The new solution is the result of a three-way partnership between RedTail Solutions, Executive Concepts and Figtree Consulting.

RedTail said its service-based RedTail Transaction Manager solution was designed to enable suppliers to meet the requirements for electronic trading required by large enterprises in the retail, automotive and distribution segments without having to make their own investment in infrastructure or specialized expertise.

Executive Concepts' ACCU-DART warehouse and inventory management solution provides a radio frequency/bar code system that ties together such functionality as inventory control, pick and pack, shipping, billing and restocking for the small to midsize enterprise (SME) market.

Figtree Consulting is an authorized reseller of the AccountMate Accounting Software solution and has developed a number of application extensions to that product based upon its expertise with AccountMate software.

The integrated offering provides a front- and back-office business solution for those AccountMate customers that need the capabilities of EDI communications combined with a warehouse and inventory management solution, all integrated with AccountMate.

"With the introduction of this integrated solution, AccountMate business partners are for the first time able to offer small and midsize companies a business solution that is optimized for their front-end EDI requirements and their back-end warehouse and inventory management system," said Steve Rosenstein, vice president of Figtree Consulting.
