Calgary firm leads development of BIXS 2

Calgary, AB – The Canadian Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) has contracted Arcurve Inc, a Canadian-based software development firm, to create the next version of the Beef InfoXchange System (BIXS). The first of a sequence of releases of ‘BIXS 2’ is targeted for the fall of 2013 with each successive release offering additional benefits to BIXS participants. The first release will emphasize easy import and export of data and a tool to help purchasers source important animal attributes within the beef supply chain.

Arcurve was the successful bidder in a rigorous request-for-proposals process that solicited responses from software development firms across North America. “Our team is excited to be working with such an experienced, professional and motivated group as Arcurve,” says Larry Thomas, BIXS national coordinator.
