Also during the first half, Seeburger expanded its managed services offering and saw significant growth in its SAP XI consulting business. Seeburger Managed Services enables customers to outsource trading partner management and other business-to-business functions to eliminate the costs of installing and maintaining e-commerce services in-house. The company’s SAP XI consulting services assist SAP customers in evaluating and implementing the SAP' Exchange Infrastructure (SAP XI) component of the SAP NetWeaver™ platform.
Other achievements during the first two quarters included product upgrades such as enhanced ERP integration for Oracle, PeopleSoft, JDE, IFS and SSA Global, enhancements in real-time parts inventory visibility for Seeburger Inventory Monitor, and an industry-first tool for Seeburger’s RFID Gateway that promises to save millions of dollars for consumer product goods manufacturers by preventing inaccurate shipments that trigger retailer chargebacks.
“Our performance during the first two quarters reflects our ongoing investment in product enhancements, our extensive focus on business integration, and a desire by major corporations to partner with a stable business integration vendor during a time of upheaval in the market,” said Scott Lewin, president of Seeburger US. “Seeburger’s stability, product strengths and 20-year expertise in business integration continue to attract companies that require reliable EDI and B2B systems to keep their operations running on a daily basis.”
Competitive advantages of Seeburger’s products include the ability to support all global trading requirements with a single B2B gateway, the availability of automation solutions that eliminate manual document exchange for smaller trading partners, and the company’s broad alliances with enterprise software providers. Seeburger’s global support aids global enterprises that wish to simplify their technology infrastructure by standardizing on one B2B solution for all offices.
