OpenText Freeway Case Studies

At OpenText we believe that all partners in the supply chain should be equipped to share electronic information affordably. Electronic commerce offers many benefits to small companies:

  • reduced printing and postage costs
  • improved customer service
  • enhanced ability to secure new customers locally and abroad
  • better visibility on payment dates and access to alternative finance

View these case studies from small and medium size companies. While they may have initially started to trade electronically because it was a condition of doing business with a key customer, once connected they have become easier and more attractive to do business with. Many of the companies have capitalised on this differentiator and used it a platform for local and international expansion.
