Leveraging Best-Practices Across Multiple Industries

An enduring hallmark of CAI is our ability to parlay software development and best practices from one industry to another. Every business, whether they sell lumber, diamond earrings or shrimp, needs a basic set of software. From general ledger, AR, AP and inventory control to transaction processing, service and delivery, our clients benefit from our breadth of cross-industry experience, with as much as 90 percent of the core ERP software readily transferrable from one industry to the next. That said, however, every industry presents a distinct set of business challenges, market dynamics and government regulations. In addition, each company often has its own tried and true way of servicing its customers and differentiating itself. CAI’s value proposition is our ability to quickly grasp the unique requirements and idiosyncrasies of each company and develop software tools that replace legacy systems and applications and automate business-critical processes.

CAI has built its reputation as a leader in the software industry through the constant enhancement of its products. Our solutions are based on a scalable and extensible design that easily supports ever-changing industry regulations, data processing and other business-specific requirements. Through a structured program of periodic software releases, we continually introduce new innovations and software enhancements that provide the management information and control required to effectively and profitably manage your business. Through this continual development process, CAI offers a strong technology hedge against software obsolescence.
