Commerce One Delivers Pre-Packaged Catalog Content

Commerce One Inc., a provider of business-to-business electronic procurement and content management solutions, said it now has available "the largest commercially-available pre-packaged catalog content from over 5,000 suppliers, distributors and manufacturers."

This content--more than 5 million items--contains products from leading vendors in the MRO content, IT capital equipment and supplies, office supplies, health care and telecommunications industries.

Vendors include Office Depot, NECX, Hutton Communications, Trade Service Corp., Praxair, Allegance, 3M, Black & Decker, Graybar, Philips Lamps and Eveready Battery. As a result, enterprise procurement organizations can now automate the procurement of more than 90% of their indirect goods and services, the company said.

The pre-packaged catalogs of indirect goods and services can be leveraged by enterprise procurement organizations through the use of Commerce One BuySite Electronic Procurement Application and Commerce One Electronic Commerce Network (ECN), a real-time trading community that links buying organizations to their suppliers.

Commerce One also said it has formed a strategic relationship with Trade Service Corp., in which Trade Service will provide Commerce One with content on millions of MRO products and provide assistance with the content collection and enrichment process.

Financial terms were not disclosed.
