cadis – the operational TMS – live at the POST-EXPO 2013 in Vienna

More service for customers of postal companies.


Munich, September 2013. KRATZER AUTOMATION is one of the best known providers of operational transport management systems for transport and logistics in Europe. At the POST-EXPO 2013 in Vienna, KRATZER AUTOMATION will present software solutions for optimization and value added services for postal transport organisations.


Today, postal service providers are no longer judged by the speed of the delivery only. Based on the modern communication technology there is a broad range of possible additional services. KRATZER AUTOMATION will present a preview of future cadis features aimed at improving the service offerings of postal service providers.


„The POST-EXPO2013 is one of the major exhibitions for the postal market in Europe” says Axel Lechler, Senior Account Manager at KRATZER AUTOMATION. “We will provide an insight into the latest developments within the cadis software suite and show some impressive new ideas for postal service providers. Our operational TMS offers significant advantages along the entire supply chain. At our booth you will not only be able to experience cadis live but you will also be informed about additional special functionality or services in detail.”

Several European postal service providers are already currently using cadis as a transport management system ensuring a significant advantage over the competition.


„Postal services require new and adaptable solutions”, says Dr. Boris Thomaschewski, Deputy Director Operations at KRATZER AUTOMATION. “We acted on these ideas and continued their development. In Vienna we will present the subsequent solutions shown in different implementations based on cadis. Detailed proof of delivery data, improvement of first time delivery attempts, high data security and additional services are requirements that can easily be fulfilled within cadis.


The POST-EXPO2013 will be from October 1st until October 3rd 2013 in Vienna. The number of the KRATZER AUTOMATION booth is 1154.

KRATZER AUTOMATION was established in 1980 by Gerhard Kratzer and Paul Balz under the name of Gerhard Kratzer GmbH, Automatisierungstechnik München. From the beginning, the company has produced industrial, process-related software — in the early years for example for the control centre of Ruhrgas AG, the automation of engine test beds at SHELL and BMW Motorsport and for optimising the service operations of the "yellow angels" of the ADAC automobile association by means of wireless mobile data transmission. In the early 1990s, KRATZER AUTOMATION changed from a pure software company to a general contractor with a full service range from consulting to implementation to maintenance and financing. In 1999, the company was converted into a family-run stock corporation with interests held by employees, senior executives and the founding families.


For more than 30 years, the KRATZER AUTOMATION software firm has been supplying process-related solutions for the automotive industry, electronics manufacturers and the transport business.


KRATZER AUTOMATION has more than 250 employees at its sites at Munich, Stuttgart, Kassel and Wolfsburg. On the international level, the company is running its own subsidiaries in France, Great Britain, the Czech Republic and China.


The company's customers include
BMW, Bosch, Daimler, Ford, MAN, Porsche, Umicore und VW (Test Systems)
bpost, Geodis CIBLEX, DB Schenker, GEFCO, IDS Logistik, Norbert Dentressangle, (Logistics Automation)
