Cyclone Commerce Promises 'Real-Time' Management

Real-time visibility of business transactions among customers, suppliers and other partners is the promise made by Cyclone Commerce Inc. to users of its new suite of value-chain management applications. Cyclone Director is a suite of four management modules that automates all facets of managing a trading community, says the Scottsdale, Ariz.-based software solutions firm. The four applications include:

  • Community Director -- an integrated application of software and services that gives a company the ability to plan and manage value chains over the Internet.
  • Transaction Director -- cradle-to-grave transaction lifecycle management that allows value-chain members to view transactions "in flight" between participants and between internal applications.
  • Process Director -- provides business performance management such as automating alerts and events across the value chain based on roles and rules.
  • Visibility Director -- provides comprehensive views into value-chain activity, such as aggregating activity via customizable business modeling reports.
Community Director and Transaction Director are immediately available, while Process Director and Visibility Director are scheduled to be released by the end of the year.
