GXS Launches Advisory Board in EMEA for Managed Services Customers

Sunbury, United Kingdom April 6, 2011 — GXSTM, the world’s leading provider of business-to-business (B2B) e-commerce solutions, has announced the launch of a European GXS Managed Services Customer Advisory Board (CAB), at a GXS Managed Services Executive Briefing on Wednesday 6th April at the GXS data centre in Amstelveen, Netherlands. The EMEA CAB is being formed at the request of GXS EMEA customers and will be the regional advisory board for GXS Managed Services customers. Members will participate on a voluntary basis to influence the GXS company and product direction in a way that is beneficial to their own needs and those of the wider GXS Managed Services customer base. Members will benefit by building deeper relationships with GXS and other GXS Managed Services customers.

“Participating in the Advisory Board has been an invaluable experience and business resource. The chance to collaborate with GXS and other GXS customers has allowed us all to have a better understanding of the challenges we face as EDI and e-commerce professionals,” commented Sue Phillips, Godiva Chocolatier, Inc., a member of the GXS Americas CAB.

“Working with customers on their ongoing B2B e-commerce requirements is a privilege and core to the  GXS business strategy as the business seeks to continually find ways to improve product and service offerings, as demonstrated by the recent acquisition of Rollstream,” said Denise Oakley, international marketing director for GXS. “Meeting with EMEA customers from multiple industry sectors allows us to get a real understanding of the B2B e-commerce challenges that organisations are experiencing today and how GXS can help by developing solutions to these problems.”

The CAB will be launched at a GXS Managed Services Executive Briefing where GXS will update customers on plans and developments around GXS’s Managed Services product portfolio while providing a forum for discussion between senior management at GXS and customers from the EMEA region.
