The key to making electronic commerce work is 100 percent participation, according to
Robert Shields, marketing director for IPNet Solutions Inc. of Newport Beach, Calif.
The way you get that is to lower the cost and make it simpler to use,
The companys IP.Net.Suite includes IP.object.link, which lets trading partners
exchange any type of data or business object created by various enterprise resource
Trading partners using IP.edi.link can exchange electronic data interchange or non-EDI
transactions over any type of network. IP.web.link provides Web forms, and
IP.customer.link is a real-time order management and customer service application.
The IP.trade.link module helps supply chain partners share inventory and resupply
information. It supports forecasting and logistics applications.
Once everyone is hooked up, Shields said, the next step is to start automating
all the data flow and controlling costs.
The multithreaded suite works with the Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 operating system and
SQL Server database management system. A version for Oracle Corp. DBMSes on NT platforms
will be ready this spring and a Unix version in the summer, Shields said.
License fees for a limited number of trading partners start around $10,000.
