Nearest Branch Plant

CAT’s proprietary Nearest Branch Plant solution for JD Edwards is built as a standalone system to calculate the distances between a customer and all the company branch plants. It lets you check item availability for a customer by showing the branches with that product sorted from nearest to farthest distance. This item availability is also designed to be integrated into JDE Sales Order Entry.

The solution can be integrated into Sales Order entry in a minimally invasive fashion that gives the user a way to find availability of an item sorted by the distance from the customer. When the item/branch is selected, the branch is then returned to the Sales Detail line without disrupting the order entry process.

The system calculates distance using zip codes for the shipping location and the branch.
