BOSTON & SAN MATEO, Calif. — Shannon Systems/B2BGateway (Commonly know as B2BGateway), today announced that it has become one of the inaugural partners of NetSuite’s NetFlex Applications Program. B2BGateway (www.B2BGateway.net) extends NetSuite’s One System Architecture with new capabilities to meet the needs of businesses that have EDI and Data Connectivity needs. The NetFlex Application platform goes beyond other on-demand development environments by being the first to allow third party applications to integrate rich transaction data with their applications.
Because NetSuite holds the most important data of a company – orders, invoices, website transactions, shipping, time, and payroll data- the applications being built using NetFlex are much more powerful and business critical. For example, with B2BGateway, NetSuite users with EDI requirements, can access the next generation of EDI and data connectivity.
In the past, EDI was a costly proposition that excluded many small and midsized organizations. With B2BGateway and the NetFlex capabilities of NetSuite, EDI has become a cost effective means of competing with larger organizations.
B2BGateway provides NetSuite users around the world with fully managed and fully integrated EDI solutions. B2BGateway currently supports users in North America, Europe and Australia.
“We are very proud to have been a partner of NetSuite since 2001, providing EDI solutions via XML. We are even more proud to be an inaugural NetFlex partner in order to bring the new benefits of EDI to businesses,” said Kevin Hoyle, CEO of Shannon Systems/B2BGateway. “The NetFlex platform provides a cost effective means of integrating with NetSuite. Customers can benefit from NetSuite’s role as the system-of-record for front- and back-office data, which makes it possible to build deeper integrations than standalone point-product applications.”
“NetSuite helps a company manage its core back-office/ front-office processes. The NetFlex Application Program allows third-parties to leverage this ‘system of record’ to extend NetSuite into a host of important applications,” said Zach Nelson, CEO of NetSuite. “Shannon Systems/B2BGateway has extended NetSuite’s One System by providing our customers with the ability to transact using EDI, to meet the requirements that are imposed by almost all large retailers.”
