Introducing B2B Gateway

B2B Gateway

B2B Gateway
simplifies the order-to-cash and procure-to-pay cycles and reduces the cycle time with end-to-end processing and handling of the exchange of Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) messages with your partners, including the X12 and EDIFACT EDI standards.
If any of your partners do not use EDI, you can use
B2B Gateway
to exchange any other type of file, for example, CSV, XML, or Excel files.
