One of B2X’s core technology needs was transaction processing. IBM’s WebSphere® Commerce Enterprise V6 was selected to handle these critical functions and capabilities while seamlessly integrating them with back-office systems. WebSphere Commerce, a unified customer interaction program, allowed B2X to conduct business directly with clients and indirectly with channel partners.

Portal Enable V6 and Sales Center were chosen to handle the presentation layer and back-office contact center capabilities for delivering an innovative, robust, dynamic and truly interactive solution. “Through the use of IBM WebSphere Commerce, transactions that used to take weeks can now be accomplished with a few keystrokes,” said Jess Knowles, IBM Sales.

(ISGI) observed. “Business One also allows B2X financial personnel to set outbound parameters such as customer credit terms and letters of credit.”
