Since changing the way your company conducts business is not a task you will undertake casually, you might wonder at this point why you should upset processes and procedures that work well. In today’s global economy, every business faces constant pressures to improve the quality of its products or service, while at the same time tightly controlling or reducing costs. While IT has helped to automate or streamline internal processes, in many businesses the external process of exchanging information with customers and suppliers still lag far behind the internal procedures.

Companies must connect in real time to their trading partners, improve data quality and accuracy and increase real time visibility in operations. Such a paradigm will yield increase business results offering processes that differentiate, increase sales and lower cost of operations.
