Axway Launches B2Bi Express Solution for Small to Mid-sized Enterprises

Pre-Packaged Solution Simplifies Business-to-Business Integration for the Mid-Market

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Axway, leading global provider of multi-enterprise solutions and infrastructure, has launched a business-to-business integration (B2Bi) solution specifically geared to small and medium enterprises (SMEs). Axway B2Bi Express empowers companies to easily and reliably manage information flows with customers and trading partners in real time. Available as on-premise licensed software or as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution, it is versatile enough to work with any SME trading community, and grows as the company grows.

The more global their reach, the more companies face the complex issue of communicating with large numbers of customers, partners, banks, etc. across different systems, with various messaging capabilities. The challenge of handling electronic data interchange (EDI) within and outside the enterprise easily and quickly is compounded by a lack of visibility and central management capability. In addition, SMEs with broader partner integration initiatives can be limited by their own systems, unable to implement solutions made for large enterprises.

Axway B2Bi Express improves the security and integrity of mission-critical business data transfers for the SME. Based on Axway’s Synchrony™ technology and service-oriented architecture (SOA), the solution supports a wide range of message protocols and standards, making it easier for companies to do business with their trading partners. Axway B2Bi Express also contains powerful, easy-to-use trading community management that rivals similar solutions designed for larger enterprises. The solution has a relatively small footprint, and can be used as a plug-and-play tool or customized.

Axway B2Bi Express provides SMEs with:

  • Trading partner and community management
  • Secure B2B communications with support for standard messaging and business protocols
  • Internal and back-end integration, leveraging existing investments in IT
  • EDI support and document handling
  • Powerful mapping capabilities
  • Message tracking and reporting to streamline data exchanges end-to-end
  • Agile and scalable B2B architecture
  • Migration tools

"Axway B2Bi Express is a solution companies can use to extend their enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems and processes to their trading partners," said Ulf Persson, director of solutions marketing, Axway. "We look at Axway B2Bi Express as completing the ‘last mile’ of integration for the SME space. The solution will help companies fulfill their integration goals, and be able to communicate securely and easily with anyone."

 

The solution is offered through Axway, and will also be resold by Lawson Software, a global provider of enterprise software systems. "We are pleased to be partnering with Axway to deliver B2Bi Express to our clients as part of their EDI initiatives," said Ole Rasmussen, global director, product management at Lawson. "The product provides the versatility, partner management, mapping capabilities, and end-to-end visibility to help our customers succeed."
