i2 Technologies will power the new e-marketplace with its TradeMatrix platform. AT&T Canada Marketplace will simplify and streamline the procurement of goods and services, improve fulfillment processes, and facilitate improved communication between customers and suppliers.
Headquartered in Dallas, TX, i2 has approximately 3,200 employees and maintains offices worldwide.
TradeMatrix is a comprehensive electronic business solution that enables companies to deploy business-to-business and business-to-consumer portals. It offers a broad spectrum of solutions and hosted services, including procurement, commerce, fulfillment, customer care, retail, planning, and product development.
AT&T Canada will also be implementing i2's e-business solutions for internal use.
Initially, AT&T Canada Marketplace will focus on assisting buyers in purchasing non-production goods and services, office supplies, and maintenance services.
With subsequent releases, AT&T Canada Marketplace will incorporate additional TradeMatrix solutions and hosted services, including direct procurement, fulfillment, and supply chain management support.
AT&T Canada will host the new service at its state-of-the art Web applications and hosting center, located in Toronto. It is scheduled to be available in the third quarter of 2000. A preview is available now at http://www.attcanadamarketplace.com.
