Commerce One Delivers BuySite 3.1 Electronic Procurement App

Commerce One Inc., a provider of Web-based electronic procurement solutions that link buying and selling organizations in real-time trading communities, delivered its BuySite 3.1 Electronic Procurement Application.

Commerce One said BuySite is the first electronic procurement solution to embed Microsoft's Site Server 3.0 Commerce Edition and offer full support for the Microsoft Commerce Interchange Pipeline (CIP).

As a result, enterprise organizations can now purchase a fully-integrated, open, standards-based electronic commerce solution to manage the procurement of all products and services necessary for business operations, the company said.

BuySite 3.1 is designed to enable businesses to integrate with other line-of-business applications, map to traditional EDI formats and thereby maximize their IT investment in various platform technologies. In addition, the company said that enterprise organizations can simplify interactions with their suppliers to enable the processing of key commerce transactions such as purchase order processing and status checks, the company said.

BuySite 3.1 includes the recently announced Commerce One Multi-Supplier Catalog (MSC). Additionally, Commerce One BuySite customers can gain real-time access to their suppliers via the Commerce One Electronic Commerce Network (ECN).

"We believe that more applications will be written to the Microsoft Site Server Commerce Edition platform moving forward, and embedding CIP into Commerce One BuySite today ensures that our customers keep pace with the market through solutions that are compatible with existing standards," said Mark Hoffman, Commerce One president and CEO.
