Catalyst International Inc. has introduced ComponentsNOW, a global marketplace for the SAP IT community, which features SAP components, external applications, add-ons, complementary hardware and information for product comparisons and build/buy analysis.
The ComponentsNOW site has more than 100 components for SAP customers to research, compare and order. Its Phase I rollout primarily features plug-in modules for supply chain execution systems and related supply chain applications from Catalyst and more than a dozen software suppliers, including IBM, Advanced Logistics Systems and Seeburger.
For SAP customers, they can go to the ComponentsNOW website to compare many different solutions and order what best suits their immediate needs. For suppliers, ComponentsNOW offers a new marketing channel for generating and pre-qualifying leads without the expense of direct selling.
