Austin, Texas-November 18, 2009

TAKE Supply Chain (formerly ClearOrbit) has released Xtended Process Control (X.PC) 5.7d, which is an upgrade to its software that was developed to accelerate and streamline supplier collaboration and extend lean processes by connecting manufacturers and distributors with supply chain partners worldwide to procure goods and services.

TAKE's X.PC 5.7d new features and modules include:
* Web labels, which enable the printing of package tracking numbers (PTN) and advance shipment notice (ASN) labels without a dedicated label printer; * A quick search toolbar, which finds and jumps to POs, invoices, shipments, or quality documents by displaying a list of search results;
* An Engineering Quality Collaboration module to manage the workflow of supplier deviation requests and corrective actions;
* An expanded Accounts Payable module that allows suppliers to create credits as well as invoices, print Invoice PDFs, and view invoice holds; and
* Additional enhancements to existing purchase order and ASN functionality.

“As many corporations turn to collaboration to gain supply chain efficiencies, the speed at which a solution can be used to on-board external entities becomes an important factor,” said Dusty Knight, TAKE Supply Chain vice president of professional services.
