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 information automatically whenever it’s needed.
EASIER SUPPLIER ADOPTION
Automate supplier self-registration, allowing suppliers to easily and quickly register on the 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.
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.
