CDM Software Solutions, Inc. was founded in 1988 to provide fast, efficient, user friendly software products, services and support for the international trade community, specifically freight forwarding, NVOCC, warehouses, importers and exporters. We invited Darrell Ortiz to provide us with a unique and fascinating insight to the firm and the solutions it provides.

CDM Software Solutions has been developing shipment software solutions since 1988, and the firm has been a certified U.S. Customs software application provider since 1990, providing fully integrated supply chain compliance, documentation and operations software for a range of uses. These include Air Freight (Import, Export and Domestic), Air Freight Consolidation, Ocean Freight (Import and Export), Ocean Freight Consolidation, Truck/Inland Freight, Rail Freight, Warehousing, Logistics and Electronic Data Interchange (EDI).

Being so long established has provided us with a unique insight into the freight forwarding industry. Global compliance is the number one requirement for freight forwarders, importers and shippers. As more and more countries require advanced shipment details, companies that ship globally must have a dynamic software solution that can meet their existing requirements and grow to meet new requirements for business in other countries that require shipment compliance.

The biggest challenge we find operating within this sector is managing existing applications and incorporating shipment compliance to new countries. Although most of the countries requirement similar shipment details, some countries require additional details. Keeping our applications simple and straightforward is key to providing efficient shipment software for our customers.

Therefore we constantly value the input of freight forwarders, importers and shippers and analytics, and we endeavour to incorporate their suggestions into our existing applications to determine growth patterns in specific trade lanes and improve the overall user experience. This approach is one of the keys to our success, and we always listen to customer complaints, complements and requirements because we understand that a software solution must continually evolve, and this requires a listening ear as customer vocalize.

With this in mind, CDM Software Solutions has recently added two new product lines to the existing CDM Software Suite, in order to keep up with changing consumer needs. The first product is the CDM ACE ABI which will complete the CDM Software Suite with a web based customs house brokerage solution. The second product is CDM Intermodal Cloud which will provide companies with an intermodal operations, tracking and accounting solution.

Ultimately CDM Software Solutions is a dynamic, fast moving company that strives to be proactive in meeting customer demands, and it is the quick turnaround we offer when providing solutions to our customers is key, and it is this that separates us from our competition and makes us the best global software solution option to our clients.

Looking to the future we have a number of exciting growth opportunities ahead of us. Based on significant growth and expansion over the past four years, CDM Software Solutions will continue to aggressively approach new markets throughout the world, and we are looking to expand to Miami, Toronto and Paris in 2016.

We are honoured to receive this award and attribute our success to the commitment of meeting customer expectations and requirements through innovative technology. Moving forward we are keen to continue with this strategy as we grow in order to offer the same high standard of service and solutions to a wider range of clients.
