CAPS Heads to the Cloud

Livonia, MI – October 7th, 2010 – Container and Pooling Solutions (CAPS) announces the recent move of its proprietary container tracking software, CAPS-TRAC™, to the Cloud. The Cloud, also referred to as Cloud Computing, is an Internet-based hosting environment that shares information, resources and software with computers. The new environment offers more flexible capabilities, allowing 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 solution. 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 bottle necks and handle increased peak times.

“We are extremely pleased with the increased performance we’re experiencing with our recent move to the Cloud,” explains 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,” explains 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. To learn more, visit CAPS at Pack Expo 2010 in Booth #5223 or online at www.UseCAPS.com.
