CDC Corporation's (CHINA) subsidiary CDC Software says it has completed the purchase of substantially all the business assets of JRG Software, an on-demand supply chain planning solutions delivered as Software as a Service (SaaS).
"The addition of One Plan to our current offering of on-demand applications will enable us to quickly expand into new market segments and geographies," said Rick Marquardt, president of CDC Software. "We are committed to industry leadership in both the hosted model of software services, particularly in hyper-growth developing markets, and enterprise software via traditional licenses where it is best suited to a particular customer or industry."
CDC says the applications from JRG add complementary on-demand factory planning and scheduling to the CDC Software enterprise suite of industry-leading enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM) and supply chain management applications.
CDC Software's products include Ross Systems' ERP and SCM, Pivotal's CRM and IMI's warehouse management and order management solutions.
JRG's One Plan is an on-demand solution for factory planning and scheduling that combines a highly interactive graphical planning environment with integrated business intelligence to enable the real-time creation, sharing and monitoring of production plans across a manufacturing organization.
