Dongfeng Peugeot Citroen Deploys GXS B2B Gateway Solution to Build Demand-Driven Automotive Supply Chain Network; Leading Auto Manufacturer Builds Electronic Commerce Capabilities by Integrating Trading Partners with Internal Application Infrastructure.

GAITHERSBURG, Md. & WUHAN, China -- GXS, a leading provider of business-to-business (B2B) e-commerce solutions, today announced that Dongfeng Peugeot Citroen Automobile Limited (DPCA) has selected GXS Partner Gateway(TM), GXS' B2B Gateway solution for medium-sized businesses. GXS Partner Gateway enables DPCA to build a high-performance, end-to-end supply chain network that integrates its internal application infrastructure seamlessly with the business processes of its external trading partners through the GXS Trading Grid(SM). DPCA is a joint venture in China between Dongfeng Automotive Group, one of China's largest automakers, and French auto giant, Peugeot Citroen. DPCA also has selected GXS Trading Grid, GXS' unique global integration platform that enables and streamlines cross-enterprise business processes, as its foundation for conducting B2B e-commerce transactions, with its trading partner community.

DPCA came to GXS as a result of GXS' broad and long-term presence throughout Greater China. GXS Partner Gateway solution enables DPCA to fully integrate its existing supplier portal with internal applications, while continuing to conduct electronic data interchange (EDI) with Peugeot Europe. In addition, GXS Application Integrator, GXS' leading high performance translator and an intrinsic part of Partner Gateway, enables DPCA to boost its mapping capability and to communicate with any trading partner using any industry standard, without the burden of manual data entry.

"With the goal of streamlining our supply chain to capitalize on China's rapidly growing automotive market, we needed a partner with in-depth experience in the Chinese automotive industry that could also provide us with local, in-country support," said Min Kefeng, IT manager at DPCA. "After a thorough competitive RFP process, we chose GXS because it was the best 'all-in-one' solution for business integration and B2B e-commerce efficiency, and met our needs far better than other vendor offerings. Since we began our relationship, GXS has been the ideal partner, delivering a clearly defined implementation strategy and unparalleled customer service."

As a pre-packaged B2B integration solution for the mid-market, GXS Partner Gateway blends the strengths of GXS Application Integrator with webMethods Fabric, webMethods' flagship product suite for business integration. The solution provides customers with the scalability, security and flexibility of enterprise-class integration and data translation software with a strong library of adapters, configured and packaged for use by mid-market companies. Because GXS Partner Gateway is a pre-packaged solution, it can be rapidly implemented and tested, enabling customers to achieve rapid time-to-value. GXS Partner Gateway can also be easily upgraded to GXS Enterprise Gateway, GXS' equivalent solution for large businesses, a clear benefit to DPCA as a leader in the rapidly growing Chinese automotive market. In addition, with GXS Trading Grid, DPCA is instantly connected to the world's largest electronic business community of more than 40,000 trading partners around the globe.

DPCA, which operates one of the largest automotive OEM plants in China, will benefit from the features and functionality inherent in GXS Trading Grid. The GXS Trading Grid accommodates the transmission and translation of transactions in any data protocol or format; including AS2, XML and EDI/EDIFACT. GXS Trading Grid also enables customers to increase visibility, efficiency and automation of worldwide trading partner networks. DPCA will experience enhanced transaction management capabilities; multiple levels of visibility into its supply chain network; and real-time collaborative event management to streamline business process integration with its global suppliers.

"The Chinese automotive market is growing at a phenomenal rate and that growth must be supported and nurtured through effective B2B integration solutions. Through its established history in China, GXS has developed world-class solutions and expertise for this rapidly maturing market," said Bobby Patrick, senior vice president and chief marketing officer at GXS. "GXS Partner Gateway enables DPCA to build an on-demand supply chain network for their automotive supply chain to improve trading partner relationships and enabling them to focus more resources on its core manufacturing operations."

With more than 35 years of automotive industry experience, GXS delivers standards-based supply chain solutions and services that enable a company -- regardless of its size, location or technical sophistication -- to become "demand-driven." GXS hosts one of the largest B2B networks in the world, supporting an unmatched automotive customer base that includes the top 25 global automotive OEMs, more than 70 percent of the Tier 1 suppliers and more than 6,000 Tier 2-n suppliers.
