A single connection links any purchasing or eProcurement system to The Business Network. Once connected, buyers and suppliers can transact on the supplier network using a Web browser or the latest XML-based integration technologies. A single point of integration saves both time and valuable IT resources. Put simply, interactions of all types become fast, easy, inexpensive and trustworthy for all parties.
LOWER COSTS & INCREASE EFFICIENCIES
Eliminate the need to support expensive point-to-point connections and deliver content and functionality at a fraction of the cost of on-premise solutions. Slow, expensive and inconsistent manual communications and transactions are replaced by low-cost, electronic methods that deliver accurate supplier network information automatically whenever it’s needed. They save time, reduce costs, and become able to respond to business opportunities faster.
EASIER SUPPLIER ADOPTION
Automate supplier self-registration, allowing suppliers to easily and quickly register on the supplier network. Easy supplier adoption results in more suppliers on the network and a greater competitive advantage for buyers. Key information is maintained at the source and made available to those who need it 24/7. Suppliers of all types and sizes can also reduce their cost of serving you.
Manage electronic documents (purchase orders, status requests, invoices, etc.) and choose from multiple document formats, such as xCBL (Perfect Commerce format), cXML, EDI, SAP, and many other XML-formatted standards. Suppliers leverage the integrated options of the TBN to increase efficiency and cost savings, as well as minimize errors that can result from managing a large volume of transactions.
