Sunbury, United Kingdom — September 12, 2008 — GXS™ (Booth C416) will be exhibiting at Sibos 2008, the world’s premier financial services event, in Vienna, Austria from September 15 to 19, 2008. GXS is at the forefront of helping companies and financial institutions align their often-disparate physical and financial supply chains. GXS’ focus at the event will be on demonstrating the importance of having a comprehensive financial supply chain solution that parallels the physical supply chain, thus ensuring that funding and payments are allocated appropriately and processed in a timely manner.
Eric Brewer of BB&T bank, the 14th largest financial holding company in the United States, will be speaking about this trend along with Tracy Bramlet of GXS. BB&T has recently launched a new integrated financial supply chain management solution powered by GXS Order Lifecycle Visibility. This new service from BB&T, called Supply Chain 360, connects buyers and suppliers around the world on an integrated supply chain finance platform that provides them with real-time visibility into invoice and payment processes. Moreover, the solution enables buyers and suppliers to mirror activities in their physical supply chains.
