Business Needs for B2B Integration

Connecting the Power of the OpenText Trading Grid to Your Supply Chain

The strength of the world's most powerful B2B Integration network is best indicated by its flexibility and how it aligns with your business objectives. Whether you are undergoing an ERP project, reaching new markets or channels, consolidating your B2B processes, or seeking to automate manual processes you need a network that is tailored and scaled to match the exact needs of your organization and B2B community.

Implementing B2B with ERP initiatives: Your B2B processes play a critical role in enabling your enterprise resource planning (ERP) system and there are significant benefits in aligning a new ERP project with an upgrade to your B2B network. There can also be significant costs in not upgrading your supply chain processes. According to AMR Research, one-third of all data housed in ERP systems originated outside the organization and 84 percent of companies experienced ERP project delays due to problems with their B2B processes. OpenText B2B Integration offers proven experience with ERP initiatives including a broad knowledge of Oracle and SAP.

Reaching new markets or channels: Your enterprise is growing and counts on the supply chain to reach new B2B partners to deliver better quality products at an even faster pace. If you’re using a legacy B2B network that was adequate several years ago then you’re likely struggling with inconsistent capabilities, support and service level agreements. All of this makes connections to new partners burdensome and creates a disjointed customer and supplier experience. You can replace all of those legacy processes by leveraging the size and strength of the Trading Grid and OpenText B2B Integration to create frictionless processes.

Consolidating B2B processes: Your supply chain relies on significant investments in hardware and software but the largest cost consideration is likely IT personnel tasked with mapping, on-boarding, and support of your B2B partners and processes. Aligning and consolidating in-house may provide for minor reductions in cost but this is difficult considering the growing complexities of orchestrating suppliers and partners. Moving to OpenText B2B Managed Services provides extensive experience to counter the growing complexities and also helps shift your valuable IT resources from routine B2B processes to more business-critical objectives.

Automating processes for SMB partners: Whether you’re an enterprise with a supply chain that needs to connect with many smaller SMB partners or a SMB organization yourself there’s a good chance that you have manual processes. These manual processes can often be a hidden cost in your supply chain by requiring valuable time and IT resources, and creating errors on an all-too-regular basis. OpenText B2B Integration offers a variety of tools that can automate even the most manual processes in your SMB organization or enterprise B2B network.
