ClearOrbit, the vendor of software for supply-chain execution and reverse logistics, has changed its name to Take Supply Chain. According to the company, the change reflects its transition to a single, global division under the parent company, Take Solutions, Inc., which acquired ClearOrbit in 2007. Take Solutions, Inc. is an international business technology firm with divisions covering supply-chain management, life sciences and business process management. The change has been accompanied by an expansion of the former ClearOrbit's product offerings. The enhancements cover such processes as outside processing collaboration, whereby users can manage tracking during outside processing, when inventory ownership remains with the buying organization but goes to another company for value-add steps. Other areas of added functionality include part non-conformance, warehouse management, asset tracking and maintenance, channel management, customs accounting for maquiladora plants, compliance with the North American Free Trade Agreement, and voice applications in the warehouse. The tools fall under four major suites: Demand-Driven Supply Network, Demand-Driven Distribution and Fulfillment, Enterprise Mobility and Auto-ID, and Global Trade Management.
