I would like to say a couple of words about our main software as a service engine (ePortal) that we use to move business documents between your accounting package and business systems (CRM, EDI trading partner, Supply Chain Management, and e-Commerce) .
At eBridge we have a team of developers who are responsible for developing, maintaining and enhancing our integration software. Originally, we built our own transaction engine – one that handled various transaction sets. The result was an engine that needed to be tweaked by our programmers. Then the decision was made to move to Microsoft BizTalk server as our main transaction engine. The early stages of the project had its bumps with an immense # of hours dedicated to research and frustration. We realized the built-in EDI adapter was not sufficient to our needs.
Finally with the release of BizTalk 2006, our own EDI adapter and many other adapters such as Amazon, eBay, PayPal, Nexternal, and MS CRM we have very powerful engine that can process thousands of documents per day. Overall our integration tools and the leverage of Microsoft BizTalk has been right choice and saves us lots of time. And best of all, the entire system can be managed and monitor by almost anybody.
I hope you enjoyed reading this post – leave me a comment if you would like to discuss this topic further.
