Container App Heads to the Cloud
Livonia-based Container and Pooling Solutions Thursday announced the move of its proprietary container tracking software, CAPS-Trac, to the cloud — in other words, Internet-based hosting.
The new environment allows CAPS to customize and optimize its proprietary container tracking software to individual customers’ requirements.
CAPS recently selected Joyent as its cloud expert and is currently working with its Smart Computing system. With the transition of CAPS-Trac to the cloud, CAPS can now efficiently manage an unlimited amount of customer data while still maintaining superior performance. The enhanced ability to process a high volume of detailed, complex information ultimately allows CAPS to identify bottlenecks and handle increased peak times.
Said Keith Schall, CAPS director of business systems and technology: “No longer are we limited by the volume of data or the time it takes to process that information. By removing these limitations, we are able to provide unique, customizable container rental solutions to meet our customers’ needs.”
Since the initial development of CAPS-Trac in 1998, the company has been consistently enhancing its container tracking software using the most advanced technology. This latest advance comes on the heels of the company launching CAPS-Trac 3.0, and announcing its CAPS-aTrac aggregate container tracking solution and CAPS-iTrac individual container tracking solution.
“Over the past 18 months, we’ve continued to invest in technology enhancements to our CAPS-Trac container tracking software in order to provide a robust, cutting edge solution that is reliable, flexible and scalable,” said CAPS CEO, Robert Wiedmaier. “Transitioning to the cloud substantially increases our performance capabilities, taking CAPS-Trac to the next level.”
In addition to its CAPS-Trac container management solutions, CAPS also rents, repairs and cleans liquid and dry plastic reusable shipping containers.
