ProCure, Mercator Partner for Supplier Integration

[Toronto, CANADA] ProCure.com Inc., a Web-based supply chain management solution provider which enables suppliers to process, track, and manage their orders through a single hosted service, has partnered with Mercator Software, Inc. Together, the companies will provide suppliers with an integration solution to the growing number of e-commerce channels in the marketplace.

Mercator's integration and transformation capabilities, with ProCure's suite of hosted supplier enablement technology products, will provide suppliers with business-to-business (B2B) solutions, allowing seamless integration and support for today's Net markets and e-procurement systems.

Suppliers who want to take advantage of emerging Internet sales channels are faced with a spate of disparate e-commerce standards requiring multiple translation services, few proven and experienced solution providers and labor-intensive, manual sales channels that require efficient automation processes. Such obstacles have impeded supplier e-commerce initiatives, and will only be exacerbated as emerging Internet markets and e-procurement systems become available.

Through the Mercator and Procure partnership, suppliers can complete e-commerce transactions with real-time integration into back-office order entry, inventory availability and fulfillment systems with complete security. Suppliers can interact with any client (regardless of data interchange standards), and track order status from any Web-enabled device (computer, cellular telephone, PDA, etc.).

The Mercator E-Business Integration Broker suite of products addresses customer requirements for business-to-business (B2B), application-to-application and consumer-to-business (C2B) integration in most industries.

ProCure's technology, workflow automation expertise, and understanding of the logistics industry, places it among experienced business-to-business managed e-business service providers.
