Open Sky Group Announces Kaleidoscope

Announcing Kaleidoscope

Enhanced Client Billing and Portal Bundled for Rollout at ProMat 2023

RALEIGH, N.C. (March 21, 2023) – Open Sky Group, announces new Kaleidoscope Suite of supply chain management solutions for 3PLs during the ProMat 2023 material handling and logistics industry event this March 20-23 in Chicago.

“From our perspective, big value will make big news at one of the biggest industry events we attend all year,” said Open Sky Group’s SVP of Sales & Marketing, Shannon Caflisch. “More than 50,000 industry executives are expected to be there, and we are thrilled to be on the floor showcasing our new Kaleidoscope offering.”

Kaleidoscope combines Open Sky Group’s innovative Enhanced Client Billing (ECB) and self-service 3PL Client Portal both offering real-time visibility, access, and workflow efficiency for a more responsive supply chain operation.

“This offering is a dynamic, enhanced data platform that provides improved insights for making informed decisions,” said Open Sky Group’s Director of Software Services, Jonathan Mitchell. “By bundling our existing ECB and Portal solutions, Kaleidoscope will represent two product introductions in one, with future enhancements to be added to our proprietary 3PL product suite.”

ECB, introduced in 2018 captures defined, billable transactions within a warehouse management system, assigning client-specific charges and creating invoices for more streamlined billing.

Open Sky Group’s 3PL Portal allows 3PL operators to provide timely information to clients through a secure Internet portal based on client ID and client group; introduced in 2020.

“Altogether, these solutions serve to enhance and improve outcomes for 3PL customers, providing a superior customer and user experience,” said Open Sky Group’s SVP of Technology, Michael Noble. “Best yet, because Kaleidoscope has been intentionally designed for simple integration using open APIs, the full suite can operate in virtually any supply chain environment with minimal configuration – a long-standing Open Sky Group operating tenet.”

ProMat 2023 will feature more than 1,000 of the world’s leading manufacturing and supply chain solution providers under one roof, including hands-on demonstrations, more than 150 educational seminars, and four exciting keynote speakers across a three-day event.
