GXS Integration Cloud Platform Runs the Supply Chains of World’s Top Companies

Sunbury, United Kingdom — 9 June, 2011 — GXS™, the world’s leading provider of business-to-business (B2B) integration provider, today announced that 23 of the companies recognised in “The Gartner Supply Chain Top 25 for 2011”* use services provided by GXS, including Dell, Tesco and Unilever.  These companies are part of a trading community of more than 400,000 businesses who run their transactions on the GXS Trading Grid, the world’s largest integration cloud that manages more than 10 billion transactions a year.

The goal of the research, now in its seventh year, is to raise awareness of the supply chain discipline and how it impacts business.  The report profiles Fortune Global 500 companies by using a composite score comprised of peer opinion, analyst opinion, return-on-assets (ROA), inventory turns, and revenue growth.

Four key themes emerged this year among the leaders, including how they deal with volatility, their approaches to value chain network integration, their focus on sustainable execution and their abilities to orchestrate.
