ESS Brings B2B Integration to Global Customers with SEEBURGER Partnership

Now Offers SEEBURGER EDI/B2B & Managed File Transfer for CPG, Retail & Financial Services Clients

04/24/2013

EDISON, NJ and ATLANTA, GA – Enterprise Software Solutions (ESS), a New Jersey-based IT services provider with offices on four continents, announced today that it has selected the widely adopted SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite to provide trading partner communications, secure managed file transfer and other B2B integration functions to ESS clients in the consumer products, retail and financial services industries. Key factors in the decision included SEEBURGER’s longtime integration partnerships with both SAP and Oracle, the robust managed file transfer functionality built into the SEEBURGER platform, and the use of standard communication protocols that will eliminate the need for each client partner to have proprietary communications software.

With a broad spectrum of IT services including enterprise integration projects, ESS has seen rising client demand for technology to automate the exchange of supply chain communications and financial data as well as to transfer large files and other unstructured data without the file size, security, visibility and compliance limitations of email and FTP. The addition of the SEEBURGER platform will enable ESS to address both structured and unstructured data exchange needs with a single standards-based solution used by thousands of companies around the globe for more than two decades.  

 

“Managed file transfer in particular has been a major B2B pain point for our clients. We have had to build custom tools for a number of clients, including one that needs to transfer files as large as 5GB and another that used to write FTP scripts for thousands of files that are batched every night,” said Raj Talasila, President , ESS. “Partnering with SEEBURGER will allow us to offer a proven and far less expensive solution that communicates with any third party, handle multiple B2B functions with a common infrastructure for easy deployment and management, and help our clients eliminate disparate legacy B2B components that add both complexity and cost for their IT teams.”

 

All functions and components of the SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite are now available through ESS, including: 

 

  • SEEBURGER Managed File Transfer (MFT), a solution that encrypts, tracks and traces non-structured business files of any size that are exchanged with both internal and external users. It also eliminates the unwieldy patchwork of plug-ins, FTP/SFTP servers, and gateway- or application-specific MFT servers, and the risks associated with consumer file sharing services.
  •  SEEBURGER B2B/EDI, a set of solutions that automate supply chain transaction messages with strategies ranging from conventional B2B/EDI to WebEDI. The B2B/EDI components of BIS can be used in tandem with SEE MFT to consolidate management and reporting of all business file transfer activity under one interface for the first time in the industry.
  • SEEBURGER Monitor for SAP, an SAP add-on that provides full visibility into supply chain transactions from the SAP interface for easy access by business users without the need to call EDI staff to check individual processes. This eliminates delays in problem identification and resolution, improves customer service, and reduces costs.   
  • SEEBURGER Order-to-Cash Solution Extension for SAP, an SAP add-on that fully automates booking by scanning incoming paper-based orders, verifying relevant information against SAP master data, and seamlessly linking and automating order entry, order verification, delivery, invoicing and receipt of payment to accelerate revenue recognition.

“ESS has seen the market demand for modern B2B integration solutions firsthand and recognized the value of having a single unified platform both for clients and for their own technology consultants.  It eliminates the need to be trained on different point solutions, makes it possible to add new components without adding new infrastructure, and enables one consolidated view of both structured and unstructured data exchange activity if desired,” said John Applegate, VP Global Channels & Alliances, SEEBURGER. “Channel partners like ESS play a critical role in bringing these benefits and related business process improvements to enterprises around the world.”
