Stockman is a new shrink-wrapped version of Mid-Comp’s successful Odyssey enterprise solution, chosen recently by agribusiness giant Elders Limited in preference to 100-plus competing systems from vendors that included multinational giants SAP AG and Lawson Software.
Based on the same code as Odyssey, the competitively priced Stockman is packaged with a selection of functions that are easily tailored to SMB supply chain requirements. Stockman offers the capacity to grow from 20 to unlimited users with no change in code.
Stockman is an integrated, real-time distribution and accounting system that focuses on supply chain efficiency. Built to run via standard web browsers, the software provides true integration between all elements of the supply chain. Basic and advanced business functions can be performed by internal or external staff, customers and auditors (based upon pre-assigned user authority).
Mid-comp managing director Steve Bridges says: "As a web-based supply chain software product, it will run on any platform (iSeries, Intel, UNIX), using any database, and any web browser. Now we are offering Stockman as a solution for companies with 20 or more users who have outgrown their in-house software, yet cannot afford SAP, Oracle, Lawsons, etc.
"Mid-Comp International’s team came from the JD Edwards world, so resellers familiar with JDE will quickly appreciate why Stockman is so revolutionary."
Elders Limited selected Odyssey for its Merchandise Division operations. Other Odyssey users include Nintendo, Janome, and BlueScope Steel Logistics.
