Sunbury, United Kingdom — September 6, 2012 — GXSTM, a leading provider of B2B integration services, today announced it has released a new report from analyst firm Quocirca. The report, commissioned by GXS, evaluates the challenges facing global value chains today and offers organisations advice to ensure an effective, integrated, B2B solution.
In the report, Quocirca examines the various approaches an organisation can take, the pros and cons of each and how to ensure that your platform is built to adapt to the growing and changing trends in the industry. It addresses the growing complexities facing cross-border organisations in their interactions with suppliers and customers from around the world and reveals a greater need for B2B integration to achieve flexible, end-to-end process visibility.
“B2B supply chains are changing rapidly and becoming increasingly complex. Today’s business functions including procurement, logistics and finance, need visibility in their end-to-end supply chain and cloud-based solutions can be part of the solution,” said Clive Longbottom, founder of Quocirca. “We advise businesses to seek a partner with the requisite skills in managing B2B integration globally as well as an understanding of the organisation’s constraints.”
“The Quocirca report shows the correlation between the growing adoption of cloud computing and the increased need for systems to be well integrated, audited and controlled. Today’s companies require a B2B integration provider that can integrate all key business processes to enable efficient transactions worldwide,” said Steve Keifer, vice president of marketing at GXS. “Having the foresight to adapt our technology to address this changing market, GXS is well-positioned to integrate even the most complex supply chain to work seamlessly with business partners around the world.”
