Franklin Express' logistics software platform is hosted at Delfour's Data Center, rather than installed at the company's headquarters, a solution that enables the company to employ a logistics system without the need to staff an IT department. The solution is comprised of the Enterprise Foundation integration platform, the WarehouseLogic automated warehouse management platform, the e-Vista web-enabled 24/7 supply chain visibility tool, the Active Desktop graphical user interface and single-screen control center, Supply Chain Event Manager, and d'Amigo, Delfour's data mining and alert activation tool.
