Catalyst International Bit by Y2K Bug


"Catalyst International, Inc. (NASDAQ: CLYS), a leader in warehouse management software, today announced that due to longer sales cycles of prospective customers, revenues are expected to be lower than projected resulting in a third quarter loss. The delay in signing new contracts appears to result from a general slow down in procurement and contracting decisions by tier one customers as Y2K approaches.

Catalyst International Ties Fate to SAP


In what may be the most significant event since the company's launch, Catalyst International has lashed its corporate ship to ERP leviathan SAP in a new alliance. The deal could buoy the small Wisconsin vendor through unprecedented revenues or scuttle it.

LMS Can Help Regulate Good Ethical Practices


When we talk about the benefits of learning management systems (LMS), training and employee competency usually come to mind.
