CNX Announces the Release of Web Portal SF for ATOMIC


Orlando, FL. CNX Corporation announces the release of ATOMIC Web Portal SF, a new web-based order tracking feature for users of popular IBM iSeries® 400-based ERP packages, including CA-PRMS®. ATOMIC Web Portal SF works in conjunction with other ATOMIC modules to facilitate the communication of customer order and shop floor work order status to authorized customers via the Internet. For make-to-order manufacturers, ATOMIC Web Portal SF can significantly reduce call center volume by offloading production status requests directly to the Internet.

Recognizing the Value of Real Time Feedback from the Shop Floor


At 11:40 p.m. on the night of April 14, 1912, Fourth Officer Joseph Boxhall was walking to the bridge. Suddenly he heard three bells from the crow’s nest, signaling the sighting of an iceberg ahead. Shortly thereafter, the voice of First Officer William Murdoch could be heard, frantically calling out orders to go “hard over” on the ship’s wheel. The noise of the engine room telegraphs ordering the reversal of the engines coursed through the frigid night air.
