Syncra ships software to bolster b-to-b exchanges' supply chain management

Published on .

Boston--Syncra Systems Inc. Tuesday shipped Syncra XT, software that helps b-to-b exchanges add so-called collaborative, planning, forecasting and replenishment (CPFR) capabilities to their marketplaces. CPFR is an existing standard that helps retailers manage relationships with their suppliers, including such things as balancing inventory and shipping schedules. Tools such as Syncra XT should let Net markets evolve from simple procurement to more sophisticated supply chain management, allowing groups of buyers and suppliers within an industry to use the Internet to work more closely.
