The smart way to do business with small business
Until now, many Enterprises have found it commercially unviable to implement electronic procurement and trading solutions to cater for small and medium businesses – SMBs lack the required resources and IT capacity for effective electronic communication. Netfira Commerce for Enterprise is specifically designed as a ‘Last Mile’ solution to complement and extend existing systems to allow Enterprises to economically trade with SMBs.
Typically supply chain implementations for SMBs rely on single direction information flow. For Enterprise buyers, SMB vendors use a variety of methods, such as email or FTP, to submit catalog information to a centralised database for subsequent query and order by the Enterprise. Enterprise sellers need to maintain manual entry staff to input phone, fax and email purchase orders from SMB buyers.
Conventional web based solutions, like shopping carts, have proven inefficient as they do not provide the functionality that SMBs need to encourage them away from traditional methods.
Simple to install and easy to use Netfira Commerce for Enterprise integrates directly into the various major systems used by SMBs. QuickBooks, MYOB and Sage and other accounting packages can now connect to typical ERP systems like SAP, JD Edwards and Microsoft.
Netfira Commerce for Enterprise combines the power of desktop applications with peer-to-peer connectivity to provide two comprehensive modules:
