Edifecs Selected by GE Global eXchange Services to Provide Trading-Partner Enablement Solution.
BELLEVUE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 7, 2000
Edifecs (www.edifecs.com) today announced that GE Global eXchange Services (GXS) has licensed the Edifecs CommerceDesk(TM) trading-partner enablement solution.
GXS will be incorporating the capabilities of Edifecs CommerceDesk into its portfolio of B2B transaction services.
Edifecs CommerceDesk is designed to help GXS's customers use the Web to accomplish tasks required in preparation for online exchange of business documents. These tasks include trading partner registration, posting of program information, reporting and compliance testing. The complexity of preparing for online trading is a significant roadblock affecting the adoption of supply chain e-commerce technology, especially by smaller companies. Removing this roadblock will make it easier for smaller companies to join the online trading partner networks of the large corporations with which they do business.
"Companies are now realizing that B2B e-commerce only works if you can build a community," said Otto Kumbar, Vice President of Interchange Solutions at GE Global eXchange Services. "Our Net Community Manager offering, built on Edifecs CommerceDesk, is key to any successful B2B community."
GXS's implementation of Edifecs CommerceDesk was recently selected as a finalist for an EC*CO (Electronic Commerce Community Ovation) Award in Innovative Supply Chain Management at the Electronic Commerce World show in Orlando, Florida.
"GXS's licensing of Edifecs CommerceDesk allows the company to take advantage of our unique approach to online trading-partner enablement," said Edifecs CEO Sunny Singh. "We're very proud that a such a global leader turned to Edifecs to become a key technology provider to its overall community-management solution."
Edifecs (www.edifecs.com) is dedicated to expediting business-to-business e-commerce through two primary product lines: its CommerceDesk partner-enablement system, designed to automate and accelerate the deployment of trading networks, and its Business Collaboration Services, which optimize value-net business models by providing collaboration-modeling services to supply-chain partnerships.
