Forging tighter relationships between your clients, partners, suppliers and other stakeholders in your supply chain can create efficiencies, costs savings, increased loyalty and a competitive advantage. Business-to-business (B2B) applications and integrations are designed to facilitate the exchange of products, services, logic, data or information between businesses as opposed to between businesses and consumers.
Historically this has been achieved through EDI and Value Added Networks (VAN’s). However, Internet technologies have created more cost effective and efficient methods to connect businesses. Being able to access web services such as those provided by Amazon and Google can reduce development cycles and hardware investments and produce more flexible applications. We have seen a shift toward web services replacing supply chain data exchange via standard EDI.
Companies can now also utilize Software As A Service (SAAS) solutions that deliver functional applications that can be used as is or they can sometimes be customized to meet individual customer needs.
