Bulk Transportation and Logistics Company Chooses UNIT4 CODA Best-of-Class Financial Software

Reliable Financial Intelligence Will Help Drive Competitiveness Across Diverse Range of Industries and Materials

MANCHESTER, NH--(Marketwire - February 1, 2011) - UNIT4 CODA, Inc., a business unit of UNIT4, the world's leading provider of enterprise resource planning (ERP) and financial management software for fast changing organizations, today announced that Superior Bulk Logistics, a leading bulk transportation and logistics company, has purchased Coda Financials as its financial management software.

Superior Bulk Logistics required accounting software that could handle the company's operational complexity across the range of industries and types of materials it transports. Using Coda Financials, the company will benefit from accurate, real time financial intelligence that will help drive competitiveness and optimize profitability in a competitive marketplace. Superior Bulk Logistics operates four divisions, each specializing in a different part of the trucking industry, ranging from transporting hazardous and non-hazardous materials, transloading food and non-food, liquids and dry bulk products as well as cleaning and sanitizing those trucks.

According to Donna Hudson, Accounting Manager for Superior Bulk Logistics, "As a growing leader in bulk trucking, with complex accounting needs across multiple subsidiaries, we needed a comprehensive financial software solution that maximizes our IBM AS400 systems and applications and integrates our operational data for both financial and operational reporting.

"After evaluating several industry offerings, such as those offered by JD Edwards, Microsoft and others, we realized that Coda Financials knocked it out of the park with its deep functionality, flexibility, integration and performance. Its single financial model, real-time reporting and multidimensional analysis are just three of the standout features that made Coda Financials the preferred choice for Superior Bulk," she concluded.

In making the announcement, Steven J. Pugh, chief executive officer of UNIT4 CODA, said, "In the demanding and complex trading world of transportation and logistics, access to reliable financial intelligence, and comprehensive analysis and control of financial information can set a company apart from its competitors. Today, more than 200 of the world's leading transportation and logistics companies rely on our best-of-class Coda Financials global accounting solution. It is especially invaluable for those organizations where classifying, measuring, and analyzing profitability by shipment, vessel voyage, container and bill of lading are of utmost importance."
