TradeCard Issues Platform for Building Supply-Chain Apps in the Cloud

TradeCard Inc. has made generally available its new AppXpress platform.

The tool is a means of building customized supply-chain applications in the cloud. TradeCard is a supply-chain collaboration and global trade platform designed for retailers, brands, manufacturers and service providers. AppXpress is part of the latest quarterly release of the TradeCard Platform. It is a development environment which sits atop the platform and enables retailers and consumer brand companies to create, deploy and manage custom solutions within TradeCard, and to integrate mobile and IT systems with supply-chain data. Users can make new document types, generate workflows, include business logic and create user interfaces, then package them as apps that be deployed directly to their trade communities with one click. In the process, said TradeCard, companies can eliminate spreadsheets, text documents and e-mails from business workflows. The AppXpress tool uses the software architecture known as RESTful Web services. It allows any application with internet access to view, modify and create TradeCard data.
