Kramer Ltd., Saskatchewan's Caterpillar® Dealer, Selects TECSYS to Enable Highest Level of Customer Service

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Nov. 19, 2009) - TECSYS Inc. (TSX:TCS), an industry-leading supply chain management software company, announced today that Kramer Ltd., the exclusive Caterpillar dealer for the province of Saskatchewan, has selected TECSYS' warehouse management software (WMS) solutions to efficiently manage their warehouse operations and improve service to their customers across the province. With the addition of Kramer, TECSYS tops 20% market share of North American Caterpillar dealers.

Kramer has experienced unprecedented growth over the past 5 years. As Saskatchewan's Caterpillar dealer since 1944, the family-owned & operated business serves the industries of road building, mining, oil and natural gas, forestry, electrical power generation, material handling and agriculture. The Company's customers range from major multi-national corporations and family-run construction companies to family-owned and operated farms. Backed by its experienced employees, Kramer currently operates seven complete parts, sales and service facilities across the province, as well as Kramer Rents - The Cat® Rental Store.

Kramer is committed to service excellence. Management wanted to go beyond their current level of customer service and launched an initiative to search for a warehouse management system to significantly improve their warehouse operations. Following Kramer's participation in TECSYS' Caterpillar Dealer Advisory Group and Software Summit, as well as a conversation with Warren Cat and a visit to Milton Cat-both of whom are TECSYS customers-Kramer decided in favor of TECSYS.

"Watching TECSYS' warehouse management system running at Milton...it was like poetry in motion," says Kramer Operations Manager Dwayne Fortney. "With TECSYS, Milton paved the way for us (Cat dealers) to move to a new level of efficiency and customer service. Improving order accuracy and parts fulfilment will allow us to not only meet but surpass our customers' expectations. "Excellence in Support" is our mantra at Kramer. With TECSYS' software, our parts warehouses will be even more efficient."

With TECSYS' warehouse management system, Kramer will improve turnaround of its 100+ orders per day and do more with less. By improving efficiency without adding space to their 20,000 square foot parts center, Kramer will minimize errors and ensure order accuracy and delivery while achieving the highest level of customer satisfaction.

TECSYS' EliteSeries WMS is one of the very few software products on the market that is interfaced to Caterpillar's DBS (Dealer Business System). In addition to its feature-rich WMS functionality, it has such exclusive capabilities as Caterpillar-supplied bar codes, cubic dimension for Caterpillar parts, Self-Service Kiosk, Transportation Management System (TMS), eTrac's powerful Proof-Of-Delivery and event tracking application, and real-time visibility throughout the Dealers' distribution process.
