BTR subsidiary, CAD Consultants Ltd. (CAD), dedicated to providing credit management for BTR companies worldwide, has installed a multi-currency, integrated suite of software from Masterpack International in a £300k project to improve service to its clients.
The Masterpack Integrated Business Solution software includes modules for Accounts Payable and Receivable, Purchasing, Inventory, Service Management, Project Costing and Fixed Assets and has been fully integrated with in-house-developed credit management software. The 32 user system runs on an IBM RS6000 installed at CAD's Surrey headquarters. Newly-released Masterpack Version 7 software will add worldwide EDI and Internet capabilities to the company's operations.
CAD manages a £4 billion portfolio of Credit Management policies around the globe and ensures a steady, worldwide cash inflow as a result of valuable management information from its IT solutions. In addition to the obvious functions such as Account Collection and Credit Vetting on a worldwide basis, CAD also offers insurance to its client companies, covering general commercial and political risks. However, in less stable parts of the world, CAD can also provide special risk cover tailored to precise requirements.
Giving CAD's reasons for choosing Masterpack software, CAD IT Manager, Tony Rose, explained: "As part of a multi-national organisation, one of our fundamental needs was for a proven, highly configurable, multi-currency system that we could easily, ourselves, link with our custom-written credit management software. The fact that Masterpack is modular and is 4GL-written (based upon System Builder's SB+), meant that it was very straightforward for us to integrate the two systems. Additionally, we liked its functionality, sophisticated sales analysis and powerful purchase ledger. And its formula-based pricing capabilities enable us to implement it in a manner that fits our business rather than the other way round."
"These benefits became a compelling argument in favour of Masterpack compared with the other products on our short-list," he concluded.
Australian-born Masterpack International, now headquartered in Atlanta, USA, is a leading developer of sophisticated business software for the distribution market. With global operations, 240 employees and annual world-wide revenues of some $24 million, the company targets its integrated systems at high-growth companies with complex distribution requirements. These customers demand sophisticated Enterprise-Deep "customer-centric" software that can enable them to differentiate themselves by providing exceptional customer care.
Masterpack International's European operations are headquartered in Oxford. In the UK, the company has recently established strategic marketing alliances with Compaq, Data General, HP, IBM, Ardent Software (resulting from the merger of UniData and Vmark), and Microsoft and boasts a blue chip customer base.
