Fullscope Launches WiseXE Product Suite to Help Fortune 2000 Companies Automate Value Chain Collaboration
WiseXE provides manufacturers with e-commerce collaborative platform to extend business processes to the Web
November 25, 2002 -- Ann Arbor, MI - Fullscope (www.fullscope.com), a leading provider of Collaborative Commerce solutions automating value chain collaboration, announced today that it has launched its WiseXE product suite. Targeted at Fortune 2000 companies, WiseXE is an integrated Web-based platform with pre-packaged business processes that enable collaborative commerce between manufacturers and their trading partners by extending ERP functionality.
Fortune 2000 companies need to drive Web-based collaboration, beyond their firewall between their partners and customers, and within their firewall, across multiple internal divisions including sales, procurement, operations, marketing and customer service, to improve partner communications. Facing increasing competition and tighter budgets, Fortune 2000 companies require a cost-effective approach to access and exchange real-time partner information while leveraging their existing investment in back office ERP systems. By increasing their visibility into their demand chain and improving communications with their end customers, companies develop deeper relationships and ultimately increase sales and profitability.
"Manufacturers want to move their business processes to the web by extending ERP systems to remain competitive in today's challenging economic environment," said Don Springer, President and CEO at Fullscope. "Having the ability to conduct business 7x24 in a personalized manner improves customer retention and increases revenue."
The WiseXE product portfolio provides manufacturers with a complete software solution using thin e-commerce technology to seamlessly extend business processes to the Web. WiseXE leverages critical sales information, such as customer orders, quotations, pricing, invoicing and statement that is traditionally maintained in back office ERP systems, and extends the business processes to customers and their partners collaborating and sharing information such as available to promise and delivery status in real-time on the Web. With Fullscope's thin e-commerce technology, Fortune 2000 companies utilize the top 20% of the functionality found in the costly, high-end best-of-breed applications that have been designed for Fortune 500 companies, and realize 80% of the benefits for one-third of the cost.
"Bioproducts purchased WiseXE because we needed an effective eChannel solution for our customers that would leverage the business data and logic of our ERP system," said Rick Hawk, Manager of Systems Applications at Bioproducts. "With WiseXE we can now give our customers and sales representatives a comprehensive eBusiness solution with access to critical, real-time information, such as order and invoice status. Using WiseXE, we will also begin to support online transactions and inventory management to help us significantly cut operational costs and generate stronger revenues."
