Athens, Alabama — July 14, 2015 — Edgewater Fullscope, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Edgewater Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: EDGW) and leading provider of Microsoft Dynamics AX and CRM solutions to manufacturers, has released software that extends the catch weight functionality in the advanced warehouse management and transportation management modules available in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3.
"The ability to accurately address catch weight within an ERP system is a critical requirement in food manufacturing and other industries where products can have variability in shipped or received units," said Reddy Beeram, director of product development for Edgewater Fullscope. "This is another example of Fullscope's ability to build intellectual property that extends the functionality of the core Microsoft Dynamics AX product. In this instance, we have extended advanced warehouse and transportation management to enable manufacturers, dealing with variability both in raw materials and finished goods, to avoid lost revenue from inaccurate billing."
"Catch weight" is a commonly used food industry term defined as the "variable weight per individual unit." The term is also used in other industries such as chemicals, paper, mining and pharmaceuticals. Products that vary naturally by size, quantity or volume are often sold in individual cases, packages, rolls, bins, totes or containers. However, the numerical quantity in these container units or packages are determined by the product's weight, volume or size, and as a result the actual quantity may differ significantly. Variations in the actual quantity can increase shipping costs and effect final item invoiced pricing, which can impact profitability.
