In the same week as software giant Oracle announced its strategy for electronic commerce, three US software companies have joined forces to create a business-to-business Internet trading solution.
In August, front-office solutions provider Trilogy linked up with OneWave, which provides Web-enabling technologies, to link its Selling Chain software suite to enterprise resource planning systems such as SAP using OneWave Internet capabilities. And now the two companies have linked up with Open Market, adding its back-office Internet commerce software to the mix. The vendors are aiming to offer organisations and their suppliers the ability to securely authenticate their business customers and provide them with product searching, configuration and display capability, personalised pricing and part number information, real-time inventory checks, order entry and order fulfillment - all integrated with existing ERP systems.
