CDC helps manufacturing facilities reduce overall costs associated with the procurement of bulk feedstock by optimizing the workflow processes.
CDC's Bulk Procurement and Logistics Management System (BPAL) is a comprehensive solution of administrative and real-time operations for the procurement of bulk feedstock.
We take pride in our ability to identify improvement opportunities in the procurement cycle. Our team of developers are dedicated to consistently maximizing BPAL's potential. Our team is prepared to install BPAL, train users, provide ongoing support and develop system enhancements to meet our client's needs.
By using BPAL, our clients have reported significant benefits in procurement activities such as cost reductions and optimization of both operational and administrative tasks.
Having started operations in 1978, CDC draws on decades of software engineering skill and experience in creating comprehensive software and hardware solutions. CDC’s team consists of dedicated professionals whose combined knowledge of software development and industry processes have been key to our success.
In the early stages, CDC was a custom software developer focused on two streams, shop floor control applications and business system applications in the mini-computer environment.
In the early 80’s CDC was mandated to develop a custom application for automating bulk raw material deliveries on a weigh-scale, bringing together development experience from both the shop floor control and business systems streams.
With the advent of a true multi-tasking, multi-threading operating system in the late 80’s, CDC shifted development from the more costly mini-computer environment to the more cost effective PC environment.
Over the years, the custom application CDC developed for automating bulk raw material deliveries grew in scope and functionality based on user requirements and multiple implementations.
Based on the expanded scope and increased demand for the system, in the mid 2000's, CDC transitioned from custom software development to a “product” centric model.
CDC's Bulk Procurement and Logistics Management System (BPAL) was born.
