TradeCard's Latest Enhancements Deliver Integration Across Sourcing, Logistics and Supply Chain Finance

Automating Processes From Raw Materials Through Shipment Enables Clients to Use Their Supply Chain as a Competitive Advantage

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - August 22, 2007) - TradeCard, Inc., the leading provider of extended supply chain solutions, has released further product enhancements for logistics visibility and financial reconciliation, supplier enablement and work in progress visibility to enable complete end-to-end transparency in the extended supply chain. The enhancements allow customers to automate and integrate sourcing, logistics and supply chain finance to maximize sourcing efficiencies.

"It is no longer good enough to monitor your supply chain -- it needs to be actively managed. To do this well, companies must simultaneously address and integrate sourcing, logistics and supply chain finance," said Kurt Cavano, CEO of TradeCard, Inc. "TradeCard's enhancements for logistics, supplier enablement and work in progress visibility integrate physical, financial and logistical aspects of the supply chain. This provides trading partners an in-depth view of transactions throughout the handoffs that occur across multiple parties between order and settlement. These tools allow clients to better align demand with supply by enabling programs such as postponement and direct shipment to deliver the right goods at the right time."

TradeCard maintains a global support team in 40 countries to ensure rapid deployment and rollout to vendors. This global presence combines with TradeCard's on-demand platform to enable most customers to be live on the TradeCard Platform within 45 days.

The new enhancements extend the reach of TradeCard's capabilities further onto the factory floor and into the shipment process for a holistic picture of the supply chain. The new product release continues TradeCard's strategic evolution into the world's leading provider of next-generation extended supply chain execution solutions. In April 2007 TradeCard launched Inbound Logistics Tracking to extend control of the global movement of goods. Supplier Enablement was introduced to automate packing, shipment building, ASN creation, and cross-docking and direct-to-retail shipments. TradeCard launched its SourceView™ visibility suite, including Work in Progress (WIP) for extended supply chain visibility, in 2006 to merge physical and financial aspects of the supply chain.

TradeCard enables alignment of supply and demand by linking complex supply chains together to respond to continuously shifting consumer preferences. The TradeCard Platform and SourceView visibility suite offer a key competitive advantage by enabling a responsive supply chain in industries where consumer preference is key, including consumer electronics, apparel and footwear, sporting goods, toys, hardware, furniture and home furnishings.
