Order EXPRESS Product Info

Summary

Order EXPRESS for Windows is a custom software package exclusively for Caterpillar® suppliers on the ZWIP, FAST TRACK and now the Mach 1 program. If you are not a Caterpillar supplier, then this software is not for you. 

Bar-Codes

Order EXPRESS prints bar-coded labels from orders sent directly to suppliers via Internet or modem. Bar-codes can be printed on a local laser printer, printed on a network printer in another office, faxed directly from a pc to another location while maintaining the bar-code integrity, or electronically transferred to another location running Order EXPRESS. Orders can be batched by part number or delivery location and routed to their destination by any or all of the above mentioned transfer methods.

EDI

Order EXPRESS creates electronic turn-around documents including: Advanced ship notices and Invoices. These documents are batched to greatly enhance data entry efficiency. A data base with pricing and other information is maintained and linked with each order for accurate handling.

Users

Order EXPRESS is user friendly. All screens are designed to be as simplified as possible and warning prompts always precede selections that could change your data.

Legacy

Order EXPRESS is compatible with data files from the previous generation of Order EXPRESS for DOS.  All of the pricing and notes gathered from years of using Order EXPRESS are fully imported into the new database format.

Open Standards

Order EXPRESS uses standard Microsoft Access (.mdb) database files. Standard files ensure your precious data is available for use in third party reporting tools like Crystal Reports. Clients also regularly export data to Microsoft Excel.
